Named in honor of the late Charles “Ibo” Balton, a gifted urban planner and proud Harlem resident who was instrumental in the revitalization of Harlem, this development is a continuation of Richman’s efforts to renew the Harlem area. The Balton was developed on the last large city-owned vacant lot in Central Harlem.
The Balton has been designed to take advantage of views of St. Nicholas Park and the Manhattan skyline. Located across the street from the 125th street subway stop, residents have access to convenient express subway service. The building contains outstanding amenities, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, resident lounge, children’s activity room, roof terrace, landscaped courtyard, bicycle storage, and garage parking. Many apartments feature hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, and private terraces.
