Harlem Brewery Site Has a Ways to Ferment


Gothamist posted pictures today taken by blogger Harlem Hybrid of the long-abandoned Taystee Cake factory on West 125th Street, and it’s evident that developers will have a long way to go in order to transform the deteriorating building into a brewery and space for creative industry tenants.

Maybe this is why developers haven’t yet released a date for when the revamp will be completed. The 328,000-square-foot space will eventually become CREATE @ Harlem Green, and potential tenants include Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center, Carver Federal Savings Banks and the Harlem Brewing Company, which would include a brewing museum, tap room, gift shop and open roof to grow hops (and, by our calculation, would be the first brewery in the neighborhood since Prohibition).

The space hasn’t been occupied for decades, but remnants of its former glory remain—the blogger snapped a photo of an old Taystee ordering sheet, and an old boiler room sign is still hanging on a rusted door.
