A Look At FXFOWLE’s ‘Luxurious’ Harlem Condo

Circa_Exterior_Looking_In_rgbNY Curbed reported that architect FXFOWLE and developer Artimus Construction have been quietly carrying out plans for a new curved glass condo building right on the border of the Upper West Side and Harlem along Frederick Douglass Circle.

Other than a singular rendering of the project that showed up just about a year ago, details for the building have been few and far between—until now. The building’s teaser site just launched, and while it isn’t a wellspring of information, it does offer up some new, exciting details. The building at 285 West 110th Street (formerly 2040 Frederick Douglass Boulevard) will go by the name Circa and will contain 38 “luxurious” one- to five-bedroom condos, many of which will have private outdoor space. Along with word of the teaser site comes a new rendering of the building’s curved facade .


This rendering, released all of a year ago, may not be entirely accurate still, but it’s the most complete view of the building that’s out there.

According to the building’s Schedule A, it will have parking for 57 cars, bike parking, a tenant library, ground- and second-floor community space, a second-floor common terrace, and rooftop amenity space.
