Harlem's much-anticipated Trader Joe's and small-format Target are coming to a new complex on 125th Street that is inching toward the finish line.


The exterior of the Urban League Empowerment Center, as the 414,000-square-foot development at 121 W 125 Street between Lenox Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard is known, looks to be complete; a peek through the windows reveals that interior work continues.

The building topped out at 17 stories in the spring of 2022.

The building will be the headquarters of the historic National Urban League and also house the Urban Civil Rights Museum, community groups such as Jazzmobile, plus 170 affordable housing units.


Last summer retailers including Sephora and Pandora announced they, too, would be opening in the complex and have since placed ads at street level.

The 28,000-square-foot Trader Joe's Harlem, officially located at 123 W 125th Street, was slated to open last year but was listed as "coming soon" on the store's website only just this week. (Its mural by the kids at Creative Art Works has been complete for some time.)


Target includes its 125th Street store on its Upcoming Store Openings page and mentions it will be about 44,000 square feet—about the size of the chain's small-format stores.
