    Second phase of The Gateway Condominium in Harlem underway 01-SEP-06



    Construction has started on the second phase of The Gateway Condominium at 2100-2102 Frederick Douglass Boulevard between 113th and 114th Streets in Harlem.

    The second phase consists of 42 units in a new, 11-story building.

    The first phase consisted of 36 units in renovated 5-story buildings at 2098 Frederick Douglass Boulevard.

    According to the City Planning Commission, which approved a designation of an Urban Development Action Area Project for the development in March, 12 of the units were to be sold to families having annual incomes not greater than about $56,000 and it should have about 4,323 square feet of retail space, 3601 square feet of open space and 2,665 square feet of community facility space to be leased to a day-care provider.

    The project has studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments ranging in price initially from $275,000 to $1,100,000. Two-bedroom, two-bath apartments with 1,259 square feet have prices ranging from about $912,775 to $944,250.

    Norman Horowitz, senior vice president of the Halstead Company, told CityRealty.com today that Steven C. Gaetano is the developer and architect for the project and his son, Matthew Gaetano is the builder.

    On January 4, 2006, Community Board 10 approved the project on condition that, among other things, the buildings “must be of uniformed signage,” the developer must use “locally based marketing groups” and “professionals” and that the “owners have a meaningful collective voice in the commercial tenant selection” and that “external, esthetically-pleasing lighting be installed on the perimeter” and that “the rooftop mechanicals be enclosed within an esthetically pleasing structure.”

    Stephen G. Kliegerman, executive director of project marketing for Halstead Property, said, "We are proud to be part of a development which will offer community residents the opportunity to invest in the neighborhood by setting aside 14 of the new construction units only for people who reside in Community Board 10, guaranteeing the community will not only retain residences and home ownership in their community but also reap in the benefits of the renaissance of Harlem."

    The project has a 5,100-square-foot roof deck, a fitness center, a courtyard garden, a live-in superintendent, storage rooms, a community room, washers and dryers in the new construction section apartments, and an attended lobby. Many of the apartments in the new building have balconies.

    The low-rise building has a brick and terra cotta façade and the new building will have a simulated stone façade. There are subway stations on Frederick Douglass Boulevard at 110th and 116th Streets.

    Question it's the end of 2006 now, however...

    We start looking into Real Estate market in the city for about 2 and half years now. Harlem seems a good buy for those want to own a place in the city without losing an arm or a leg. There are many good words about this project since 2003. The phase II completion date has been postponed to May 2007 by the builder. Comparing to other project around it, it has attractive price and location ( only 3 blocks away from Central Park and Columbia Univ.).

    On the other hand, the construction work seemed stopped soon after they cleaned up the area, and they only use it to park two trucks in the past couple of months. Does anyone know what's going on there?

    Excerpt from Cityrealty article posted below.

    I do not have time now to do so: but perhaps some research into the above named persons/companies may turn-up some information on those projects.
    Good luck......please post here if you find out anthing on this project.

    Default Reasons Why

    The reason the completion of Gateway IV has been delayed is the builder, Gaetano Developmet Corp, can not find contractors to finish it. Due to Gaetano's treatment of their subs and how many business relationships they have destroyed, they can't find anyone to work with them. Call Norman Horowitz and Stephen G. Kliegerman, they can verify.

    Default frustrated gateway investor

    We signed a contract in 05, were promised C. of O. in May 06, then again in May of 07. There have been no contract/offering plan addenda, as promised, zero communication from developer or his agent(s). Aren't there other people in a similar situation who are worried and fed up?

    This project seems to be stalled: and there are not answers that I can find - I have done some extensive searches on the internet, and have come up empty. Sorry I could not be of any help; but please keep us all posted.

    LoFreDo: Gateway Phase 2 Rises From The Development Ashes!




    (click to enlarge)

    This one is a long story. Gateway Phase 2 on Frederick Douglass Blvd. between 113th and 114th was a new condo development that started selling in early 2005. Nothing had been built, but money was changing hands. The ambitious project was to be comprised of five existing five story buildings, a new five story building and the equivalent of 4-5 new six story buildings set back, but built right on top of the 6 buildings underneath. Well, come 2007, nothing happened. Buyers were obviously pissed, and there is little doubt that they eventually got their money back. End of story? Not quite. Fast forward to today and suddenly this concept is rising from the ashes, seemingly in the same form that was originally planned. There has been plenty of permitting activity over the past few months and the DOB website still show an 11 story structure with 88 units in progress. Calls to the owner have yet to be returned and there is virtually nil on the net since 2007- that is until now! Feel free to fill in the blanks in the comments section.

    Oh, and LoFreDo? My newest neighborhood nickname suggestion for Lower Frederick Douglass.
