22-22 Jackson Avenue

ODA's jumble of concrete boxes in Long Island City, 22-22 Jackson Avenue, has topped out. The 11-story, 175-residential-unit mixed-use building is composed of an exposed concrete exterior wall, a growing trend in New York. A playful massing of concrete residential modules randomly extrude from the facade on the north and east facades, while the south and west facades are more conventional flat surfaces. Window installation is also underway on site, with progress reaching the fifth floor.  The windows feature a maroon frame. Amenities for the project are housed in the two story base and include a lobby, lounge, library spaces, gym, indoor pool, and a landscaped courtyard on the 3rd floor roof deck.
