The St. Claire on Fifth condominium in Harlem is mixing an open house with a karaoke party next Tuesday to promote sales.

The event, “Karaoke under the Stars,” will be held on the building’s roof deck, at 2077 Fifth Avenue at 128th Street. Brokers and potential buyers can sing their favorite songs, while enjoying complimentary hors d’ouevres and cocktails, and tour the building’s amenity spaces and model units.

“We wanted to do something really fun that people would enjoy and remember,” said Carole Griffin, president of Griffin Real Estate Group, the exclusive sales and marketing agent for the building. Griffin said they got the idea from a karaoke event held for brokers by the Real Estate Board of New York.

“So many brokers sing and are entertainers and do other things, so we thought, why not?” Griffin said.

Sales at the St. Claire started in April, and five of the 13 units are under contract. The seven-story condominium has two- and three-bedroom units, ranging from 1,125 to 1,625 square feet. Prices start at $700,000, and amenities include a roof deck, fitness center, media lounge, parking garage and storage.

The building is slated for occupancy by the end of the year.
