The Brooklyn Lyceum will once again pulse with strenuous activity when it begins a new life as a Blink Fitness later this month. Originally built as NYC Public Bath No. 7, the formerly crumbling building at 227 4th Avenue is now gleaming after a major exterior restoration project. A preview of the interior showed a significant transformation.


Developer Greystone purchased the historic structure in 2014, and also owns the property next door at 225 4th Avenue. Greystone was able to transfer about 20,000 square feet of development rights from the Lyceum to the formerly empty lot next door and build bigger there. A 12-story luxury rental designed by Daniel Goldner Architects is under construction and will wrap in early 2018.

Talk about freshening up!

Park Slope’s historic bathhouse emerged from behind scaffolding on July 7 after a year-plus-long renovation of the turn-of-the-century facility — which could not have come at a better time, according to a rep for the developer.

Spanning Upper Manhattan from the Hudson River to the Harlem River, 125th Street is home to buildings with rich history like the notable Apollo Theater, and also to new developments including a massive, 200,000-square-foot commercial building that will soon host a Whole Foods and other chain retailers. Within proximity of the evolving streetscape, newly constructed or redeveloped rental buildings have opened too, like 6 West 126th Street and 92 Morningside.

The latest to open, called Harlem 125, sits directly on the thoroughfare at 69 East 125th Street and launched leasing in May; within one month, it was 25% leased. Various layouts are still available and as added appeal, listings offer 1 month free on leases for all units, which are priced from $1,994/month.

The long-awaited College Terrace Market, which offers products from local food manufacturers and farmers, opened in Palo Alto on Wednesday.

Co-owner Chris Iversen said that although Wednesday was a soft opening, based on word of mouth, the day far-surpassed expectations.

College Terrace Market’s mantra is “Whole Foods quality with Trader Joe’s prices,” according to Iversen.
