Back in October of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 134-unit mixed-use building at 2351 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, in Harlem, and then we brought you renderings of a redevelopment proposal that would have saved the dilapidating Harlem Renaissance Ballroom from demolition. Since then, the ballroom has been demolished, and now developer BRP Companies has landed a $53.2 million loan to build the project, according to Commercial Observer. Construction is reportedly underway, with completion expected in 2017.
The new building will measure over 200,000 square feet in total and includes 20,840 square feet and 17,500 square feet of community and retail space, respectively. 27 of the residential units will be rented at below-market rates. GF55 Partners is designing.
