A former Development Du Jour from way back in September 2009, Harlem's PS90 is one of our favorites. Built in 1905 as a public school and abandoned since the 1970s, this formerly rotting relic at 220 West 148th Street has been polished up and reborn as a 75-unit condominium. We've been dabbling in and around the building since the renovation began, and last week we got another look inside as the finishing touches were put on the amenities. Have a peek in the photo gallery above.
PS90 is now over 60% sold or in contract, with StreetEasy reporting a $516/sqft average on the closed sales. The remaining 30 units, which range in size from 737 to 1,577 square feet, are priced from $475k to $879k. Amenities include a doorman, landscaped courtyard, media room, residents' lounge, work studio and bicycle room. The apartments are equipped with herringbone pattern oak flooring, central air and heat, Bosch washers and dryers and stainless steel kitchen appliances. In other words, a big change from those school days. In fact, below is an example of what the interiors looked like just before construction began. Can we give this transformation an A?
