461 West 125th Street New York, NY 10027
Located on West 125th Street, this property was the former home of the Taystee Cake Bakery, which closed in the late 1970s. In the decades since its closing, the building has been vacant and suffered decay. In an effort to revitalize the neighborhood, NYCEDC issued an RFEI for the redevelopment of the Taystee Bakery in November of 2010. Janus Partners LLC and Monadnock Construction, Inc. were selected to lead the redevelopment project.
The redevelopment of the former Taystee Bakery on West 125th and 126th Streets is the newest addition to the Manhattanville Factory District in West Harlem, New York. This new state-of-the-art Class A office building will welcome a broad mix of commercial, technology, media, non-profit, community and retail users to the 125th Street arts and culture corridor, one avenue east of Columbia University’s expanding campus. Taystee will offer spaces of a quality and variety that have not been seen before. The iconic design features dynamic and transparent spaces with floor-to-ceiling glass that will be a vital part of this community.
When complete, the Manhattanville Factory District will total almost a million square feet of new mixed-use buildings beautifully interconnected by a series of greenways and courtyards.
