Harlem's sleek new condo development named Circa Central Park is making its way to the construction finish line. The 11-story building developed by Artimus Construction contains 38 market rate units with one to five bedrooms, and two penthouses that each span more than 2,700 square feet. Hugging the northeast corner of Frederick Douglass Circle at the intersection of Central Park North, Circa's design by FXFowle Architects is both respectful to its context and also provides an optimistic, refreshing outlook for the storied neighborhood.
The south-facing façade fronts the circle and Central Park, and is largely clad with floor-to-ceiling windows. The building is aiming for LEED Silver certification and to minimize solar heat gain, FXFowle employed a brise soleil system of horizontal louvers and vertical fins to reduce the amount of direct sunlight permeating the interior. Besides the fins' functionality, the designers highlighted them with bright colors, further adding dynamism and depth of the swooping elevation.

When sales at Circa first launched, pricing started in the $965,000 to $970,000 range. All one- and two-bedrooms are in-contract and just seven apartments remain on the market, including one of the two penthouses priced at $4,335,750. The priciest remaining unit however, is Apartment 9A listed for $8.7 million. It's a 5-bedroom spread with a private 739-square-foot terrace overlooking Central Park. For comparison, there are 148 condos for sale in Harlem according to CityRealty data, with a current median price of $965,500 averaging to a price per square foot of $1,128.
Units have master baths with spacious free-standing soaking tubs with separate glass-enclosed showers and high-end finishes like white marble slab walls and floors, high-gloss wood cabinetry, Supernova Dornbracht or Grohe fixtures, a rain shower, a Duravit wall mounted toilet and bidet, gloss-white cabinetry, a honed grey limestone mosaic accent that wraps elegantly from floor to wall and a white lacquer vanity with double sinks. For secondary bathrooms in the units, there’s rich, wood-tone porcelain tiles on the floors and walls that feature sleek natural stone-tone porcelain tiles with textured accent tiles. To complete the units, there are oak hardwood floors, radiant floor heating, LG vented washer/dryer, central heating and cooling and floor-to-ceiling windows. Many the units have generously sized terraces that cascade the building.
