Located between West 102nd Street and West 103rd Street, the interior lot is steps from the 103rd Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train, and a short walk east to the 103rd Street station on Central Park West, serviced by the B and C trains.

Robert A.M. Stern Architects has revealed renderings for a new student residence hall that is set to break ground this year in Morningside Heights, Manhattan.

Recently, new developments and re-zonings promising community and retail amenities alongside thousands of new affordable housing units have been stymied in Two Bridges and Inwood. Now, plans for substantial injections of the aforementioned components by the Olnick Organization at Harlem‘s Lenox Terrace have been attacked as well. Spearheaded by Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, the latest effort constitutes a contemporary example of redlining, and is an explicit violation of the National Civil Rights Act of 1968.
