The extreme makeover that was supposed to turn West 125th Street's Victoria Theater into an arts-hotel-affordable rentals complex appears to have stalled. The project was supposed to break ground in January of 2013, Harlem Bespoke reports, but there's been no word on when construction will actually start. Back in February, it looked like the 230 apartments and and 210-room hotel were on track, but here we are. Of the many projects reshaping 125th Street, it does boast the highest price tag: $143 million. Bets on whether that's the cause of the holdup?

Permits Filed: 233 West 125th Street, 26-Story Victoria Theater Redevelopment



The redevelopment of Harlem’s Victoria Theater has been a long time coming, but finally, progress may be on the near horizon. The first new building permits went up for 233 West 125th Street today, on behalf of the Lam Group, which is developing.

Aufgang is the project’s architect, and the 26-story building will stand 300 feet tall; interiors will be split between a 172,067 square foot residential component, divided between 192 apartments, and a 203,120 square foot hotel.

While large retail boxes have predominated the urban infill along 125th Street, towers have been nonexistent. 233 West 125th Street will become one of the tallest buildings in Harlem, and the height is warranted both by surrounding mid-rise density, and excellent transit access.
