Concrete superstructure has surpassed the half way mark at ODA's boxy, 175-unit building in Long Island City. The 11-story mixed-use building is located next to the former 5 Pointz site and across from MoMA PS1. Made of cast-in-place concrete, the facade is constructed in a similar method to the exposed concrete of Vinoly's 432 Park Avenue supertall tower but with a more playful massing of residential modules that randomly extrude from the facade. Installation of the maroon-framed windows is also underway.
Architects: ODA; Program: Residential; Location: Long Island City, Queens, NY; Completion: 2016.
