Last Friday, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the 12-story mixed-use building rising at 2040 Frederick Douglass Boulevard (a.k.a. 285 West 110th Street), in Harlem. Later that day, the New York Times published a new rendering of the project along with updated details. Dubbed Circa Central Park, the building will have 48 condominium units, ranging from 647 square-foot one-bedrooms to 3,348 square-foot five-bedrooms. Three penthouses will top the terraced structure and 10 units will be sold at below-market rates. Many of the units will feature outdoor space, either in the form of private or shared areas.
