The Balton and the Douglass Park
The Balton and Douglass Park are 12-story and 8-story apartment buildings containing a total of 226 affordable-housing units. The project is located on the full block bounded by West 127th and 128th Street, St. Nicholas Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem. The total development parcel footprint is over 46,000 SF with a subway beneath St. Nicholas Avenue. This challenging development involved consolidation of 19 tax lots across the full block, with four outparcels scattered in between, and eventually the creation of three separate buildings fronting on all four streets, connected via a central courtyard.
