The Hub – 327 East 101st Street

The Hub is a luxury apartment rental building located on 101st Street in East Harlem. The Hub is a beautiful, red brick, postwar building with 24-hour virtual doorman. It is close to shops, cafes, and restaurants. It is also easily accessible by public transportation. The building boasts a landscaped rooftop deck, and with just six apartments on each of the eight floors, The Hub feels more like a small cooperative or a family owned building than an apartment building. Newly developed, these one- and two-bedroom apartments offer spacious living options, some with home offices and private terraces complete with outdoor furniture and barbecues.

Units and Pricing

There are currently just four apartments available at The Hub, all of which are one bedrooms. Two boast 610 square feet while the other two feature 806 and 850 square feet, respectively. Prices range from $2,165/month to $2,395/month. The average price per square foot at The Hub is a mere $38, a steal given the luxury finishes at the building.

Features and Amenities

Apartments feature kitchens with stainless still Whirlpool appliances, shaker-style maple cabinetry and silastone countertops. Bathrooms boast satin finish ceramic tile backsplashes, wood vanities with storage and 5″ red oak hardwood floors throughout. Factor in stacked Bosch washers and dryers, and it’s clear coming home doesn’t get any better. The building boasts a landscaped rooftop sun deck with a BBQ terrace, as well as laundry facilities and a doorman.

Location

Get ready to thrive in lively and developing Spanish East Harlem’s rich history, culture, and Latin flavor. The city’s best inexpensive restaurants are in this area. Jefferson and Marcus Garvey parks are within walking distance, as are subways 4, 5, and 6. Every so often, a new neighborhood begins the process of gentrification and hence, gets deemed “safer” and “more livable” than it has been in the past. Such is the case with East Harlem, which has been beautiful and full of great eateries and bars for years now – lucky for the residents who’ve been there a long time, the neighborhood has remained somewhat of an undiscovered jewel – it’s only recently that condominiums and luxury rentals have sprouted up, bringing with them the masses.

We’re talking real luxury – a rooftop sun terrace to search for the stars and BBQ some burgers, Bosch washer/dryers in every apartment, private terraces in many, gorgeous hardwood floors and state of the art kitchens, all for half of what you’d pay in Manhattan.
