Location: Harlem, USA

With its high-tech amenities, the ground floor design lends itself to a grand lobby and fitness room. The interiors draw inspiration from the exterior glass and metal panels that dominate the facade, giving it a clean, contemporary look. All units include French balconies, gardens and roof terraces. All the apartments are designed with wide plank hardwood flooring, European fixtures, elegant Italian kitchen cabinets, and oversized closets.

The typical two-units-per-floor layout and three single floor units inflict a sense of intimacy within the context of a large building, with private lobbies at each floor. The future of Frederick Douglas Boulevard will be steered by projects such as this one: Modern buildings with top of the line features, which are sought after by buyers seeking relief from higher priced areas in the city. The North Star is a pioneer in the luxury mid-income market in the area.
