NEW YORK | 23 East 22nd street | 24 fl | Pro

Quote:
OMA to build its first residential high-rise in New York City

Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas was in New York today to unveil his design for 23 East 22nd Street, a new luxury high rise in the Flatiron district that will rise immediately adjacent to the recently completed One Madison Park tower by Cetra-Ruddy architects with which it will share a lobby and building amenities.

The 24-storey building will include 18 residences, a Creative Artists Agency (CAA) screening room, pool and gym. The building will be distinguished in the skyline by its dramatic cantilevered floors. “Mirroring the traditional New York setback, the building’s form is at once familiar and distinctive," said OMA founder Rem Koolhaas. “The form provides a number of unexpected moments that appear at each step- balconies at the upper part of the building and floor windows at the lower part- providing a variety of unit types and features throughout the building."

The building is scheduled for completion in 2010

very interesting design i think we have seen it a few weeks before in another thread i think in the NYC projects thread.....mhhh seems like NYC is really keen on having a totally refreshed skyline with some fancy designs......this one is a good example that also NYC can include experimental architecture that even fits....

with 24 floors it shuld be somewhere around 85-90m!

the construction will be very interesting to witness since it will has all this floors that "hang out" of the building/core...it´s also interesting that they will use more and more glas the higher the building gets...something what Peli also did with the facade of the WFC!

Strange box.

What buildings have to disappear for this thing? I hope they won't tear anything historicist down for it (such as the neighbouring buildings). That'd be a shame.

Althought It isn't a tallest building in the world, but it looks very strange.
If possible, people can post its structural drawings for everybody to see.
Thank you.

Taking into consideration the building next door (right), i'd say nothing special.
