    Default 111 Central Park North - Harlem - Condo

    HARLEM HIGH-RISE PLANNED


    By BRADEN KEIL
    July 16, 2004

    Central Park North could become the next Fifth Avenue — or at least Central Park South — with the arrival of a new luxury high-rise building planned for the long-neglected Harlem boulevard facing the famed park.

    The Post has learned that luxury condominium builder, The Athena Group, has bought three property parcels at the northwest corner of Central Park North and Lenox Ave. It plans to construct an upscale doorman building that would rise 20 floors with as many as 80 units, if the plans are approved.

    "This is an opportunity for New Yorkers to be on the park at roughly half the price of Central Park South," said Athena CEO Louis Dubin. "And I think these are the best views of the park, and the city, from that vantage point."

    Dubin said the building would have units ranging from one to four bedrooms at prices between $500,000 and $1.7 million.

    Last month, the Post reported a migration of middle-class families and single professionals taking advantage of the low prices and grand spaces. Several apartment buildings are now in the process of floor-by-floor renovations.

    Once the permits are in place, Dubin hopes to begin demolition by spring 2005.

    I have always woundered how long it would take for CP North to get exspensive. Guess the wait is over.

    Yeah, really does make sense. Just a matter of time before most of Harlem is like the rest of Manhattan. It's too close with too nice a building stock not to be.

    I'm hoping for an impressive design, as well as that people in the neighborhood will get priority.

    I'm all for revitalization, but I still hope that Harlem can be integrated while maintaining its history as a Black neighborhood; it would be a shame if families who have lived there for generations were to be priced out. It would be nice, however, if the boundaries between racially divided neighborhoods citywide could be a bit more blurred, in some cases penetrated in both directions.

    Harlem wasn't always a black neighborhood.

    True, but it wasn't always a Dutch farming village, either.

    As I recall prior to the Majority African-American inhabitance Harlem was a posch White community during much of the 1800's and early 1900's. Maybe it will return as such and induce its self into a cycle. Who knows.

    Let's hope not. Harlem is reknowned for its Black culture and is currently experiencing a second Renaissance.

    New apartment tower on Central Park North





    08-MAY-06

    The Athena Group is planning a 18-story residential condominium project at 111 Central Park North on the northwest corner of Lenox Avenue and 110th Street.

    The blue-glass-clad building has been designed by Hillier Architecture and will have many balconies, 48 apartments, a 41-car garage with an entrance on 111th Street, and a 4,500-square-foot community facility.

    Recently a 11-story residential condominium conversion project with 7 units was completed nearby by Queva J. Lutz and Sara Olsen at 125 Central Park North.

    The Athena Group, which is headed by Louis M. Dubin, and its projects have included 838 Fifth Avenue and 32 West 64th Street, both in Manhattan, and The Waverly Condominiums in South Beach, Miami.

    The building will have 8,721 square feet of retail space that is expected to be available in the fall of 2007, according to Robert K. Futterman & Associates, which is handling the space.

    The tower is setback above a one-story base.

    Swanky 1960´s Euro luxe looking and not bad at all ....OR.... a missed opportunity to connect CPN with CPW and 5th by doing something "classic"?

    Opinions?

    I think there are a few stores across the intersection. Mostly CPN is lower end apartment houses/tenements, streetfront churches, and even contains a jail (!)

    Tear 'em down. Replace the lost units in streetfront buildings and blend in at least 50% market condos. Garnish with ground floor shops.

    Higher density, better streetscape, mixed community, mixed use.
