The Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), the firm founded by Pritzker Prize-winning Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, has designed its first ground-up residential building in New York City. The building — 121 E 22ND — will rise on the former site of the United Cerebral Palsy’s Gramercy headquarters.

The condo building is being developed by Toll Brothers City Living and Gemdale Properties and Investment, and was designed by OMA partner Shohei Shigematsu. Situated at the crossing of the popular Gramercy and Flatiron neighborhoods, 121 E 22ND will stand 18-stories when completed and house 133 residences.

121 E 22ND features a modern glassy exterior and a uniquely etched out corner that breaks up the static design. Units will have open floorplans, with layouts ranging from studios to five-bedrooms, with as much as 2,402 square feet of living space available depending on the plan. Other interesting design aesthetics include floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceilings while select residences have private outdoor space.


Some of the development’s noteworthy amenities include a spacious, fully attended lobby, a rooftop terrace with a firepit and grill overlooking scenic Gramercy Park, a fully-equipped fitness room, an indoor pool, a screening room and a children’s playroom. Residents can also find their zen in 121 E 22ND’s fully landscaped indoor courtyard.

Sales for available units range in price from $1,495,000 for one-bedroom units to $5,315,000 for three-bedroom units. The development is scheduled for completion in 2018.
