The Carolina (previously know as Lexington Gardens II) is a 100% affordable, mixed-use project in the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan. The project site is bounded by Park and Lexington Avenues and East 107th and East 108th Streets.

The project was developed by a joint venture between L+M Development Partners and Tahl Propp Equities. It is comprised of  400 rental units affordable to very low, low, moderate, and middle-income households. It also includes a state-of-the-art 28,000 square-foot community facility, which will be the new headquarters of the Northside Center, a nonprofit with a longstanding history of service to the Harlem community providing expert behavioral, mental health, education and enrichment programs to children and families living in poverty.

The project also includes a 3,000 square-foot community facility for Union Settlement, where they expanded their mental health counseling programs for adults, approximately 6,000 square feet of community facility space along 108th Street, and approximately 4,000 square feet of space for local retail, which will front on Lexington Avenue.
