REVIVE: 108-110 EAST 116TH STREET


The abandoned tenement buildings at 108-110 East 116th were apparently sold over a year ago and now has gone through an incredible transformation.  We walked by the block just east of Park Avenue a few months back and noticed that the entire facade has been meticulously restored.  In the not-too-distant past, budget developers would take down expensive building details such as the cornice or remove old decorative carvings but this has been a full restoration project for the East Harlem residential buildings.  Currently the lower retail space has finished up but an anchor tenant has yet to arrive.
