Circa Central Park is quickly taking shape at the corner of Central Park West and 110th Street, where Harlem meets the Upper West Side. Images taken by6sqft reveal that almost half the 11-story, 51-condo building now stands at the site. The forthcoming semi-circular glass structure, which sits on the northwest corner of Central Park, is designed by FXFOWLE. Developer Artimus Construction have remained pretty mum on the project, even as it nears its sales launch and passes milestones like the unveiling of its teaser site. When complete, the building will have one-to five-bedroom apartments which will start at just under $1 million.
Construction work at the site was delayed by a long remediation process owing to the site's former life as a gas station, according to 6sqft. Artimus purchased the property in 2013 for $25 million after going through a selection process for a designer with the state's Economic Development Corporation . The developers will create space for local dance group Millenium Dance Company on the ground floor; 20 percent of the building's 51 apartments are earmarked as affordable. · Construction Update: FXFowle's Circle-Hugging Harlem Condominium Rises Over Central Park [6sqft]
