The construction works for ODA’s tower at 126 East 57th street in New York have begun. The site spans the width of a city block from 56th to 57th street and the plan foresees to erect a 175,000-square-foot tower. The footprint and layouts allowed ODA to prioritize multiple amenity experiences throughout the building.
The main entrance will be on 57th Street. Residents will walk through a mirrored copper gateway to reach a 6-story atrium with views of a landscaped courtyard. A gallery will then lead to the lobby and access to the 28-story residential tower. On the 56th there will be an additional entrance for cars.
Almost all units will have private terraces, which will give a pixelated effect to the concrete facade. The 11th floor will offer a 3,350-square-foot party room, with a kitchen meant for help socializing and access to a large, covered terrace, with a bar and private cabanas. The communal terrace on the rooftop will give the residents a space to sunbathe and grill.
