☞ REVIVE: 125th Street Back on Track
A long abandoned lot right by the Apollo Theater has now had some major foundation work finishing up on the site and Red Lobster has signed a contract to lease out the new commercial space. Just a little further west on FDB/8th Avenue, the new building that will house DSW, Joe's Crab Shack and Blink Fitness is steadily rising day by day. These two projects should be finishing up in a years time so change is definitely at hand.
On the east side, the Corn Exchange Building was finally sold off to a reputable developer and design plans are under review by the Landmark Preservation Commission to rebuild the former Mount Morris Bank to its former glory. It's been over 5 years since much has happened on the boulevard but now the future looks brighter for Harlem's famous commercial strip.
