Work on Harlem's Aloft hotel (the cheaper cousin of Starwood's W chain) has been progressing in the past few months, but it's been much longer since we heard a peep about the 44 apartments planned for the 124-room hotel (rendered at right). We've wondered whether those units were a market casualty, but no! A tipster points us to the website for the Apex condos. Not much there yet, and the automated sales office recording is a little outdated in promising a "spring 2010" opening, but that's more life than we were expecting out of this project. The hotel portion is scheduled to open in mid-August, so perhaps we can look for the condos to arrive closer to that time.
