NEW YORK | 122 East 23rd St| 18 fl

The area around Madison Square Park is starting to grow as a new cluster of starchitecture.
OMA is starting strong in NYC.

First Offical Renderings of Rem Koolhaas' 122 East 23rd Street

An exciting new two-towered condo development is under construction at 122 East 23rd Street on the corner of East 23rd Street and Lexington Avenue in Gramercy. Toll Brothers’ City Living is developing the project, that has an estimated value of $134 million. Excavation at the site is well underway and upon its expected completion in 2018, the project will encompass 275,000 square feet of floor area and host 136 condominium apartments across 18 floors. The development also will seek LEED certification.

SLCE Architects is the architect of record with the highly-acclaimed Rem Koolhas and his firm OMA as the designer. The project will the Pritzker Prize-winner's first ground-up development in New York. Koolhaas is already well associated with the city having penned his book “Delirious New York,” nearly 40 years ago. Ultimately, the building will feature crystalline glass and concrete facades that meet in an “electrifying fashion,” according to construction managers CMA. The north building’s corner will feature a chiseled design, exposing glass edges and yielding a distinctive presence on its corner of 23rd Street and Lexington Avenue.

In between the two wings will sit a mid-block courtyard surrounded by private apartment terraces. These terraces will feature planters for beautiful hanging plants, as well as balustrades made of translucent, perforated metals. The courtyard will extend into an open pool area, a playful children’s area, and screening and party rooms on the lower level floors. The building’s entrance on 22nd Street will lead residents into an artfully designed lobby complete with tower elevators. 122 East 23rd will also contain a robotic parking system, which will automatically bring cars into underground storage.
