Real Estate Weekly : Art Heralds Uptown Opening

As featured on Real Estate Weekly


Parkadon Management & Development founder and CEO Michael Greenberg unveiled the mosaic art at new mixed-income condominium 70 West 139th Street. “Returning to the River” by Harlem-based artist Susan Stair reflects on the area’s evolving landscape and history.


70 West 139th Street (at Lenox Avenue) will complete construction this month.


Greenberg, whose mother was pioneering SoHo artist Jane Greer, collaborated with Art in FLUX to commission the mural. Said Greenberg: “I love this neighborhood — its art, architecture and strong sense of community. Every building has its own story, and with this project I wanted to prove that mixed-income housing with truly affordable condos can be high-quality and beautiful as well.”


70 West 139th Street is a green building designed by Peter Franzese and Jorges Montes De Oca. The eight-story, 64-unit condo building includes 42 affordable apartments for families with incomes between 90 and 165 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI), as well as 21 market-rate residences.
There are 31 one-bedroom apartments, 31 two-bedroom/two-bathroom apartments, and two three-bedroom apartments. All 64 apartments have wood flooring, solid-core interior doors, and high-end hardware and lighting. Amenities include an indoor cardio gym and fitness center, virtual doorman, onsite parking for 32 cars plus E-charging stations, secure storage for bicycles, and 54 private storage rooms. The 2,500 s/f common rooftop terrace has its own elevator landing, electric outlets and an intercom system.
