Harlem’s Corner Social Bar Changes Hands in Mixed-Use Deal 

JLL Capital Markets closed the $14.336-million sale of 321 Lenox Ave., a six-story, mixed-use multifamily and retail building that is home to the Corner Social Bar & Restaurant, one of the most popular watering holes in Harlem. 

The team of Hall Oster, Paul Smadbeck, Teddy Galligan, Conrad Martin and Braedon Gait arranged the sale on behalf of Delshah Capital LLC. The buyer was OSTB 321 Lenox Avenue, LLC. 

Originally built in 1910, 321 Lenox, also known as 101 W. 126th St., features 32 residential units and one commercial unit. It is situated on the corner of Lenox Avenue and West 126th Street within an Opportunity Zone. Following a substantial rehabilitation in 1986, all the apartments were fully deregulated and are currently on fair-market leases. 

“The housing market surrounding 321 Lenox Ave. is positioned for a significant increase in demand as the city continues its post-pandemic recovery,” said Oster.
