JLL Capital Markets has announced the $14.336 million sale of 321 Lenox Ave., a six-story, mixed-use multi-housing and retail building that is home to the Corner Social Bar & Restaurant, one of the most popular watering holes in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood.
JLL arranged the sale on behalf of the seller, Delshah Capital LLC. The buyer was OSTB 321 Lenox Avenue, LLC.
Originally built in 1910, 321 Lenox Ave., also known as 101 West 126 th St., features 32 residential units
and one commercial unit. It is situated on the corner of Lenox Avenue and West 126 th Street within an
Opportunity Zone. Following a substantial rehabilitation in 1986, all of the apartments were fully
deregulated and are currently on fair market leases.
The property is steps from Harlem’s bustling West 125th Street corridor and the 2/3 express subway
station in an area renowned for its culinary offerings and historic architecture. An influx of large-scale
development has transformed the area into a 24/7 hub for residents, professionals and tourists alike.
The JLL Capital Markets team that completed the transaction included Managing Directors Hall Oster
and Paul Smadbeck; Vice Presidents Teddy Galligan and Conrad Martin; and Associate Braedon Gait.
“The housing market surrounding 321 Lenox Ave. is positioned for a significant increase in demand as
the city continues its post pandemic recovery,” Oster said. “Interest will be driven by tenants seeking the
convenience the 2/3 express subway station and drawn by the energy of Harlem’s 125th Street and Lenox Avenue retail corridors.”
“The adjacent retail corridors have proven their resilience throughout the pandemic, and an influx of new,
post-pandemic retail tenancies, including both Target and Trader Joe’s, illustrates the high level of
confidence that corporate retailers have in the area’s future as a thriving retail destination,” added
