Greystone, a New York City-based real estate development, lending and advisory company, is delighted to reveal a 76-foot mural by celebrated local artist, Lance Johnson, at its residential property under development at 69 East 125th Street in Harlem. Greystone commissioned Johnson to create a one-of-a-kind canvas mural that honors the rich culture and fabric of the immediate community. The mural, installed on October 26, will initially be featured outside of Greystone’s development site for the community to observe and enjoy, and then will be incorporated within the building, once construction is completed.
“We saw this as an opportunity to add art and connect with the community. We received many submissions and unanimously chose Lance. When you take in his artwork, you can sense the vibrant and dynamic foundation upon which this community is built,” said Jill Preschel, Vice President of Marketing for Greystone Development.
