Here’s our first look at Dabar Development’s eight-story, mixed-use project set to rise at 400 Lenox Avenue in central Harlem. The 40,000-square-foot development will anchor the southeast corner of West 130th Street and Lenox Avenue and will house 30 rental units, 2,000 square feet of retail at the ground level, and a second-floor community space for Pentacostal Faith Church, the owner of the project site.

The design provided by Zambrano Architectural Design rises flush with the street wall and sports a distinctive yellow-brick cladding of “elongated artisanal bricks.” According to Dawanna Williams, managing principal at Dabar, “the facade is inspired by the historical masonry context of the surrounding blocks of Harlem.” The two uppermost levels are cutaway from the corner resulting in a large recreational terrace for residents. As per plans filed with the DOB this past summer, floors 2-6 will contain six apartments each, while floors 7 and 8 will provide four units apiece.

Pentacostal Faith’s church building was demolished more than a decade ago. Two-thirds of the church parcel was sold to Uptown Partners where they developed The Lenox condominiums next door in 2006. The remaining third of the lot where 400 Lenox will rise has been vacant since. According to Dabar, construction is slated to begin next April and completion is expected by the end of 2017.
