The NY Times recently published a mildly critical [note] on a new condo building under construction in Harlem, on West 116th. The name ("Kalahari Condos") leaves no doubt where the architects (lead architect David E. Gross for GF55 Partners L.L.P., design architect Frederic Schwartz) drew their inspiration from. As for the pricing specifics,

Nearly half of the 249 condos planned for the $119 million building have been set aside for moderate-income buyers. A family of four with a household income of $63,800 to $131,165 would qualify for one of the subsidized units.
