Preservation a high priority on $143 million mixed-use Victoria Theater project in

October 17, 2012

A $143 million commercial development project to be built above the historic Victoria Theater in New York City's Harlem neighborhood will preserve many of the landmark's design elements. “The whole idea of developing this mixed-use structure is that we are trying to make a destination for the community and for people from outside the community,” says project designer Ariel Aufgang. “It will be the center of attention.”

The project will rise midway between the New York State Office Building and the Apollo Theater. It includes the construction of two 26-story towers, a hotel, and a 230-unit apartment building. The Victoria Theater’s original 1917 terra cotta facade and ornate lobby will be restored. The two towers will have a combined 360,000 sf of space.
