The Real Deal New York

Harlem gas station owners fish for developers

The owners of the shuttered station have completely prepared the site for development

 Manhattan developers love nothing more than snapping up a gas station site for a ground-up project – so much so that only 11 were left below 96th as of last year.

But the owners of a shuttered gas station, located at 300 West 122nd Street, seem to have had trouble cashing in on their property. In fact, they are so eager to sell the station to a willing developer that they have gone to the trouble to prep the site for construction, according to Curbed.

Harlem Bespoke has received plans for either a 127-unit condo or a 184-unit rental building, with over 200,000 square feet of residential space and a decent percentage of affordable units. They’ve even procured permits and contracted a designer, so basically all they need is an investor.
