Sales have launched at a new block-long condominium in central Harlem. The building, called Aurum, is at 2231 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Boulevard between West 131st and West 132nd street. It was designed by Loci Architecture and has 8 floors and 115 condominiums. It boasts refined amenities and a thoughtful design that is also environmentally sensitive. The units in the building vary in size, from studios to three bedrooms, and 61 units are currently listed on CityReaty, though only 11 are not in contract.
The New York Times recently reported that 60 percent of units in the building have been sold, and that studios are entirely sold out. Still available are six 1-bedrooms starting from $669,000 (Unit 514), four 2-bedrooms starting from $978,000 (Unit 208), and one three-bedroom for $1.489M (Unit PH8).

Bathrooms have a Kohler deep soaking tub, Carrara wall tiles, and porcelain tiled floors. All units have a GE washer/dryer, and are pre-wired for cable/fios.
Roof deck
Aurum, the Latin word for gold, has an attended lobby with a green wall, a media room, bike storage, a fitness center, and a roof deck. The roof desk has two levels of common space which includes a fitness center, a media room, indoor and outdoor seating, and grilling stations.
CityRealty's architecture critic Carter Horsely says the building is a nicely modulated structure with a facade in four sections of different pastel colors. The building was developed by BRP Companies, and a LEED certification is pending. It has a co-generation plant for electricity and heat, a green roof, and was constructed using materials that are recycled or locally manufactured.

The building sits on the site of the former Lafayette Theatre, which operated from 1912 to 1951, and was demolished in 2013. Still a central location, the area has seen several new developments including many new retail options along 125th Street, which is only blocks away. For transportation, the building is close to several subways including the 2/3 and B/C.
