Developed by the Jay Group and designed by J. Frankl C. Mallea Y. Stern Associates, the project is one of the latest high-rise buildings to come to Harlem following the rezoning of the neighborhood’s 125th Street more than a decade earlier.

Amenities at the building include a bike room, on-site laundry, fitness center, lounge and media room, co-working space, and two rooftop terraces. As one of the tallest buildings in the area, 56 West 125th Street offers impressive skyline and Central Park views.

The rental is conveniently located less than a block from the 2 and 3 trains at 125th Street and Malcolm X Boulevard, as well as the A, C, B, and D trains about 10 minutes east. The building faces Marcus Garvey Park, which is home to the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater, playgrounds, and an outdoor pool.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the available affordable housing units until August 18, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Preference for 50 percent of the units will be set aside for residents of Manhattan Community Board 10. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
