Halstead Property Development Marketing recently announced the completion of construction at Harlem Sol, a new two-building development at 121 and 123 West 131st Street between Lenox Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard.
Nestled in Central Harlem, Harlem Sol 123 recently hit the 38% sold mark, with Harlem Sol 121 closely behind with 25 percent.
Conceived by the project architect, D+DG Architecture, PC, Harlem Sol is a double dose of a development- the best of brownstone and modern living right in the heart of Harlem. The buildings stand together and apart, two adjacent but very different buildings. Harlem Sol 121 is a brownstone completely renovated and restored in a manner that pseaks to history and luxury, while Harlem Sol 123 is a new-construction condominium with an intentionally more modern design with touches of traditional brownstone characteristics.
At this stage, according to developers, one of four units is in contract at 121 West 131st leaving two one-bedroom, floor-through homes and one two-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom duplex with a private rooftop deck available. Two of eight units are in contract at 123 West 131st, with the six remaining untils a mix of studios as well as one-, two- and three-bedroom duplexes. They range in price from $299,000 to 729,000 and in size from 524 to 1,183 square feet. Both residences are available for immediate occupancy.
"Having these two distinct approaches to space and lifestyle makes it very attractive to a wide variety of buyers," said Stephen G. Kliegerman, president of Halstead Property Development Marketing. "This is especially true in an area where we are seeing an increased appreciation of property values."
Ceiling heights soar up to 14 feet and residences feature granite countertops, vented Maytag washer/dryers, Brazilian oak wood floors, walk-in closets, original details like exposed brick and private outdoor space. Amenities include a virtual concierge, media room, individual storage for all units, and a common roof terrace.
Harlem Sol 123, by contrast, is a townhouse designed in a contemporary, sleek style with modern amenities. Residences feature white oak floors and private outdoor space for all but one remaining home. Amenities include: elevator, virtual concierge, individual storage for most untils, bi-level common roof terrace with breathtaking NY skyline views, and a media room.
In each home, you'll find kitchens with GE stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, glass tile backsplashes, Elkay stainless steel undermount stinks and Delta faucets with an extension arm. Bathrooms feature Kohler toilets; marble vanity tops with Integral sinks; tri-view frameless medicine cabinets; ceramid subway tiles; and porcelain tile flooring. Each residence also includes a vented Whirlpool washer/dryer. Harlem Sol 123 features a 25-year 421-A tax abatement.
"The name of the Building, Harlem Sol, has a double meaning," said Ayo Haynes, sales manager of Harlem Sol. "It uses sol, the Spanish word for sun, to indicate the abundance of sunlight in the residences, as well as the plentiful common outdoor spaces, and references the soul of Harlem- a vibrant community at the fingertips of each of our buyers."
Harlem Sol 121 and 123 are being exclusively marketing and sold by Halstead Property Development Marketing.
