The Kalahari has arrived in New York City, and no, that does not refer to the desert. It is, however, the name of Harlem's African-themed luxury condominium. Situated at 40 West 116th Street and only six blocks north of Central Park, its bright and eye-catching design conceals one of the island's most environmentally friendly buildings. With a LEED certification of silver, it is quite green indeed, even if the outside is tan and black. The Kalahari is also one of Upper Manhattan's most accessible residences; the neighborhood's major retail corridor, 125th Street, is only a short walk to the north, while there is easy subway access to Manhattan's East and West sides.
Boasting a desert and safari theme, The Kalahari contains 249 unique apartments. The condos up for sale exude tribal influences throughout their spacious interiors. Large windows bring light into open living areas, while The Kalahari's height allows for great views across Manhattan. Bamboo floors tie together a kitchen finished with oak and a chrome-laden master bathroom. At the same time, there is a commitment at 40 West 116th Street to add subtle mosaic, limestone, and gold details, further enhancing the natural feel of each condo while focusing on sustainability and green living.
Of course, luxury living at The Kalahari doesn't end outside of each apartment. Stepping into the building from 116th Street, a full-time concierge is on hand for every resident and there is Wi-Fi every public space. A private courtyard and fitness center are always available, as are meeting rooms and music practice areas. The best part of all of these amenities? All are only an elevator ride away, just like the great restaurants and shops along 116th Street and Lenox Avenue right outside your door.
