About 228 Lenox Avenue

The mansion at 228 Lenox Avenue is located between 121 and 122 Street, nestled among a multitude of picturesque row houses, green spaces, and commercial offerings in the Mount Morris Park Historic District.

Originally constructed in 1880 as a single family residence in the Romanesque Revival style, 228 Lenox housed a funeral home from the mid-20th century until recently. Now a blank canvas with many original details intact, this 20’ home retains antique pocket doors, multiple fireplaces, soaring ceilings, and an impressive, stately facade. With approved Alt-1 plans, this piece of Harlem history can easily be converted into boutique luxury condos or rentals, like a handful of similar properties in the immediate vicinity which have achieved lofty figures in the recent past. Other, larger ground up projects currently selling from the sponsor or in lease-up within blocks include: 300 W 122 St (63 unit condo), 11 W 116 (30 unit condo) 127 West 112th Street ( 25 unit condo), 11 Hancock (71 unit condo), 224 West 124th Street (168 unit rental.) These projects illustrate the continued growth Harlem has seen in the past two decades, with hundreds of owners and renters looking to upgrade their living quarters in this historic community.

The building is conveniently located in the heart of Harlem, with a multitude of restaurants and retail just moments away. Whole Foods, Red Rooster, Vinateria, Settepani, Il Caffe Latte, and Sugar Hill Creamery are within blocks, as are multiple retail stores spanning from Burlington Coat Factory to the atelier Dapper Dan, a Harlem fashion icon who has partnered with the Gap and Gucci. Marcus Garvey Park is a half block away, and Central Park is a 20 minute walk. The 2/3 train is two blocks away, and there are a variety of buses that run along the avenue as well as cross town.
