Greystone Acquires Harlem Land Parcels for Mixed-Use Development

NEW YORK, Dec. 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greystone, a New York-based real estate development and financial services company, today announced it has acquired four adjacent land parcels on 125th and 126th Streets in Harlem, New York. The properties were purchased at an auction in United States Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York for $11.5 million.

The Harlem properties are located at 69, 71, and 75 East 125th Street and 58 East 126th Street. The connected parcels will be developed into a single mixed-use property with approximately 12 floors, and is intended to include a mix of market rate residential units and affordable housing units.

"The 125th Street corridor is seeing interest from several large NYC developers, bringing an influx of new residential units by the hundreds, and retail and amenities that will benefit current and new neighborhood residents for years to come," said Jeffrey Simpson, head of Greystone Property Development. "We look forward to being a part of the exciting development of upper Manhattan."

The Greystone Property Development team, based in New York, is currently working on a number of projects in prime locations within Manhattan, the outer NYC boroughs and Miami.
