National Urban League Rendering

West 125th Street in Harlem will be getting a major update, with over twelve new construction buildings going into development in 2014. Residential and commercial properties will be built  in this location along with the new headquarters for the National Urban League and NYC’s first Civil Rights Movement Museum. A certain building that is slated to begin in 2015 on West 125th Street between Adam Clayton Powell Blvd and Malcolm X Blvd is under major scrutiny as the new development would effectively push out retailers that have held businesses along the busy street.

Lower Manhattan's Burst of Development

Lower Manhattan is planning on massive growth within the next few years, with more than 70 construction projects underway.  The most well-known project, The World Trade Center complex is set to widen the area as a public transportation terminal, with the completion of the Fulton Center, which despite stalls is slated to open in July, and will contain a retail space above the subway lines.  This would complement the reopening of the newer South Ferry Station, which still requires renovations consequent of Hurricane Sandy, as well as the new One World Trade Center, which would expand the current PATH station.  The new complex will also house the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
