Welcome to the Manhattanville Factory District - a unique upper-Manhattan neighborhood of old industrial buildings between Amsterdam and Convent Avenues, stretching from West 125th to West 128th Streets in the rapidly-growing West Harlem academic and arts corridor.
Largely abandoned for over a century, this charming neighborhood is experiencing an unprecedented re-birth that is being fueled by a combination of new and affordable housing, an influx of dining, shopping and recreational venues and the ambitious plans of the internationally-renowned academic and cultural institutions that have long called West Harlem home.
The Janus Property Company has also grown up here. Located in the Factory District for over 20 years, Janus has developed and continues to own and manage an array of affordable housing, commercial and mixed-use properties that have made it a fixture of the community. Janus is widely recognized for successfully completing complex projects, hiring neighborhood contractors, architects and employees, and partnering with and supporting local not-for-profit organizations in a variety of ways.
Today Janus is the largest private non-institutional owner in West Harlem, creatively master-planning and developing three acres of the Factory District into a world-class 1 million square foot, 24-hour mixed use community. Phases I and II – the 150,000 square foot Mink Building and 50,000 square foot Sweets Building – are complete and fully leased. Phases III and IV – the state-of-the-art 340,000 square foot Taystee Building and 185,000 square foot Malt House are currently under development. Ultimately these and future phases will be tied together through a string of mid-block landscaped passageways and courtyards, creating a new, iconic, New York place.
We invite you to join the broad range of arts, technology, community and commercial users who are, more and more, calling the Manhattanville Factory District home. Welcome!
