The Frederick has only just gotten aboveground but is already shaping up to fit right in among the gorgeous new developments rising up in Harlem. Renderings released by Aufgang Architects show a 15-story building towering over its neighbors, but its red and gray brick façade help it fit in with its surroundings. Oversized windows will fill the apartments with natural light.

While the prices of the 75 studios through three-bedrooms will be based on the city’s Extremely Low and Low-Income Affordability Program (ELLA), architect Waleed AlGhamdi reports that The Frederick will prove that sustainability is not a luxury amenity: The apartments will have EnergyStar appliances and LED lighting among other environmentally friendly features.

Official building amenities will include a bike room, recreation room, study room, and outdoor entertainment space, but residents will especially appreciate having a 7,300-square-foot supermarket on-site: According to The Real Deal, JCAL Development formed a joint venture with the owner of the supermarket formerly on-site after buying the property and an adjacent parcel for $2 million. The new supermarket will be nearly twice the size of the original and built under New York’s FRESH program.
The Frederick takes its name from its location in the heart of Harlem at 2395 Frederick Douglass Boulevard. The iconic Apollo Theater is a short walk away, as are popular local restaurants. Families will appreciate having so many schools and playgrounds on the surrounding blocks, and all residents will appreciate being so close to the 125th Street subway.
