The sale of the 3-family townhouse 123 West 119th Street, exclusively listed by real estate brokerage firm Harlem Lofts and located between Lenox Avenue aka Malcolm X Blvd. and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard, in Central Harlem, closed on September 14th, 2017. The record sales price of $4,150,000 for a townhouse in the Mount Morris Park Historic District, one of Upper Manhattan’s most sought-after enclaves is a rarity.

Robert “Robb” Pair, the president of Harlem Lofts represented the seller. EVO Real Estate Group represented the buyer in the transaction.

This sale is indicative of the direction of the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood, and a bright spot in Manhattan’s otherwise slowing real estate market. Along with the recently opened Whole Foods on 125th St. and Malcolm X Blvd. and several new, luxury condominium and mixed-use developments sprouting up in the neighborhood, the sale of 123 West 119th St. is a signal that Central Harlem is still going strong and real estate prices will continue to rise.
