The new retail building planned on the corner of 125th Street and FDB/8th Avenue is definitely the fastest rising new development uptown these days.

The first floor is starting to rise now and folks should expect to see a dramatic change at this corner in the next few weeks. Check out the final rendering of the building in our past post: LINK
