5 Upcoming Residential Developments In Upper Manhattan Above 110th Street

Large sections of Manhattan have seen a large share of residential construction in the past decade. From new condominiums towering over the Financial District, to an entirely new neighborhood over the rail lines at Hudson Yards, the skyline from the southern tip of the island to Billionaire's Row in Midtown. But amongst the clear signs of change and verticality on the world-famous skyline are other significant projects north of Central Park that will become noteworthy properties in areas that are beginning to see a spur in new developments in NYC. We list five sites that demonstrate the growing interest in Upper Manhattan real estate

1) Ray Harlem

One of the most anticipated developments coming to Upper Manhattan is Ray Harlem at 2033 Fifth Avenue in the Special Arts District in East Harlem, Manhattan. Designed by Handel Architects and Frida Escobedo, and developed by Ray and LMXD, the rising 21-story, 240-foot-tall mixed-use project is quickly going up and will eventually yield 222 rental units ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. A portion of the homes are designated towards affordable housing. The project will also be home to the National Black Theatre (NBT) , which is expected to occupy 25,000 square feet of space on the ground floor, cellar level and floors three through five. It will have a 250-seat flexible temple space and a 99-seat studio theater, classrooms, and offices. Little Wing Lee is the interior designer, Charcoalblue, Marvel Architects, and Studio & Projects are overseeing the theater design for the property, which is located along Fifth Avenue between East 125th and East 126th Streets. 

Amenities will include a 24/7 attended lobby, a ground-floor community space, business center, an outdoor rooftop terrace, a courtyard, a library, and an art room. Completion is expected in November 2024. 


2) 121 West 125th Street

Another equally notable project that is on the verge of completion is 121 West 125th Street,  a 17-story mixed-use building designed by Beyer Blinder Belle and developed by The Prusik Group, BRP Companies, L+M Development Partners, and Taconic Partners. There will be 414-000-square feet of space with 170 affordable rental units, 70,000 square feet of Class A office space, and 110,000 square feet of retail area for a new Target and a 28,000-square-foot Trader Joe’s on the ground floor. The building is also going to be the new home for the National Urban League and the Urban Civil Rights Experience Museum. The project is located between West 126th Street to the north, 125th Street to the south, Malcolm X Boulevard to the east, and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard to the west.

Construction should likely finish up before the end of the year. 


3) 601 West 125th Street

Located on the western side of Manhattan island in Columbia University‘s Manhattanville campus is 601 West 125th Street, a mixed-use residential project that topped out not too long ago. The new 391-foot-tall structure, although only housing 142 residences for graduate students and faculty, makes a clear visual impact on the neighborhood which traditionally had not seen buildings of this scale before. Designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop and CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by the Trustees of Columbia University, the 34-story project will span 175,000 square feet and additionally include 5,000 square feet of retail space. Construction is happening at the corner of Broadway and West 125th Street, adjacent to the elevated 125th Street 1 train station, and is expected to finish next year. 


4) 4650 Broadway

Located near the northernmost tip of Manhattan island is 4650 Broadway, a 19-story tower that currently stands topped out in Inwood, Manhattan. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Arden Group, the ground-up reinforced concrete building will yield 222 rental apartments, lower-level retail space, a community facility, and residential amenities ranging from a fitness center, a children’s playroom, a resident lounge, and multiple outdoor terraces.

Construction is anticipated to be finished in 2024 with the first residents expected to move in next summer. 


5) 620 West 153rd Street

Situated not too far from our previous contender is the 28-story Sunrose Tower at 620 West 153 Street in Hamilton Heights, Manhattan. Designed by J Frankl Architects, the topped out mixed-use residential structure will yield a total of 238 residences ranging from studios to two-bedroom units,  72 of which are designated as affordable housing. 

Residential amenities include an on-site parking garage, a dog washing station, bike storage lockers, a shared laundry room, a tenant lounge, common area Wi-Fi, indoor and outdoor co-working spaces, a package room, a recycling center, a gym, a children's playground, a third-floor terrace, and a 28th-floor 360-degree outdoor rooftop terrace with panoramic views overlooking the nearby Hudson River to the west.
