Yesterday while down on Frederick Douglass Boulevard I couldn’t help but notice BLVD, a terracotta colored condominium pair at 2196 Frederick Douglass Blvd, that book ends a five-story sand colored building sandwiched in between.
The circa 19th century building features hardwood floors and high ceilings. The kitchens include stainless steel GE appliances, European tiles backsplashes in a herringbone pattern and custom-designed cabinetry. Bathrooms are floor-to-ceiling D’Oriente Palmira tile and have deluxe Duravit toilets by Philippe Starck. Other special features in the apartments include convenient pocket doors, Haier combination washer/dryers, individually-controlled air-conditioning units in each residence and large closets. BLVD was designed by preeminent Columbia University professor of Architecture, Jorge Otero-Pailos, in conjunction with the LEED- accredited architect Robert Krone
The building offers two penthouses, with two and three bedrooms with skyline views, European tilt-and-turn windows, outdoor space and skylights. BLVD has 13 residences per building in the two building development. Amenities include rooftop terrace, virtual doorman, video intercom, bike room and personal storage.
BLVD is Located between 118th and 119th Streets, directly across the street from Best Yet and Starbucks. Pricing is advertised as starting at $299,000.
