Harlem has long been seen as the rising neighborhood in NYC but recent rezoning ramifications have created a bizarre stagnation in the East Harlem region. There are several large major mixed-use projects coming the neighborhood that are gaining noticeable serious buzz compared to other regions in NYC but the volume of development deals is down. Harlem's cultural history will continue to be a driving factor for developers looking to add to the community density. An upcoming expansion of the Studio Museum of Harlem is a testament to the steady reinvestment in Harlem's local roots that has defined the area. Will other iconic community landmarks help to tip the development scale? As East Harlem and other sections of Upper Manhattan fall under the Opportunity Zone program os 2017, it will be interesting to see what sorts of new capital investments flood into the neighborhood and how local community leaders can work with developers to support Harlem's growth.
