With a curved, contemporary facade leaving its mark on the cityscape, and optimal building amenities, CIRCA offers its residents a flawless Central Park lifestyle.
“I think the number one distinguishing feature of CIRCA is that it’s such a prominent structure on such a beautiful circle,” says Elaine Diratz, managing director at Town New Development of the 11-story building on Frederick Douglass Circle. “It will become a landmark, I have no doubt.”
Light, airy openness describe the 38 residences that boast high ceilings and generous windows with views of the park. “Each apartment is unique,” says Diratz. “Most of them do not fit into the cookie-cutter apartment. They are spacious and angular, and reflect a higher level of design than most buildings.”
Besides a 24-hour doorman, green oasis and family-friendly amenities such as children’s, tween and study rooms, other special amenities appeal to the proximity to Central Park. Residents are welcome to fully stocked picnic baskets, a bike-share program, kids’ scooters and remote-controlled boats to be used in a classic family activity at the park’s water features.
“One of the best features we offer, especially for the Upper West Side, is private, self-parking. It’s so convenient. You don’t have to call in for your car to be brought down — to me that is the greatest and most luxurious feature,” says Diratz.
Apartments at CIRCA Central Park range from $2 million to $6.5 million.
