City Reality has just revealed that Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas recently broke ground on his first-ever ground-up building project in New York City. As reported by 6sqft, the Dutch starchitect’s first NYC building will be a LEED-seeking, double-towered glass and concrete condo development with a distinctive chiseled edge running down the length of the north building.
Construction on the $134 million project, located at 122 East 23rd Street in Gramercy, is already underway and is slated for completion in 2018. The plans unveiled by City Reality call for 136 condos with private terraces spread out over two 18-story towers.
Future tenants will be able to enjoy a courtyard between the two buildings that leads into a pool area and family playground. Additionally, the building will be equipped with media and entertainment space as well as an automated parking system that stores residents’ cars in an underground lot.
