Sugar Hill Development

Sugar Hill Development

The 191,000 square-foot Sugar Hill Development in Harlem features 124 apartments, an early childhood education center, a children’s museum, and a rooftop farm. Appropriately named for its notoriety as the center of the "sweet life" during the Harlem Renaissance. The development was planned with its history in mind, creatively blending modern design with a surrounding Gothic revival row-houses. The exterior of the building was constructed with rose-embossed, photoengraved, graphite-tinted pre-cast panels and creates an ornamental effect that shimmers in the sunlight throughout the day, paying tribute to the rich culture and history of Harlem.
