New Design, But No Tenants For Harlem's Taystee Project

New, 5 comments

The old Taystee Bakery factory in Harlem is currently being demolished so Janus Properties can redevelop the site as an entrepreneurial hub, but the Daily News reports that the project is missing something important: future tenants. Not one group has signed on for space in the state-backed $135 million development on West 125th Street near Amsterdam Avenue. The Harlem Brewing Company is interested in the project, officially called CREATE@Harlem Green, but they have yet to commit to a lease, contrary to previous reports. The Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center was also slated to move in, but they couldn't agree on terms with Janus. No matter, construction is still moving forward, and new renderings were released. Space in the hub, which can fit 10 to 30 companies, will lease for about $45/square foot, and it should be complete by 2015.
