Construction has begun on a residential tower along New York City’s Billionaire’s Row design by architect ODA.

Construction has begun on a residential tower along New York City’s Billionaire’s Row design by architect ODA.

The 175,000-square-foot building will sit at 126 East 57th Street, comprising 175 units.

Nearly all of the residences will have private outdoor terraces, creating a pixelated effect across the cast-in-place concrete façade with projections and recesses. 

Residential amenities will be based in the tower’s two sub-levels, one floor of which will contain an exercise room, sports court, indoor swimming pool and sauna.

The other level will house a private lounge and kitchen, courtyard, playground, communal greenhouse and outdoor cinema.

The roof will house a communal terrace with a barbecue area and sun lounge.

The residential entrance on 57th street will have a copper mirrored gateway leading to a six-storey atrium.

Eran Chen, ODA’s founder, said: “This building brings a human scale, playfulness and visual interest to this upscale corridor of 57th Street. As New York City slowly transforms Midtown East to a residential destination, we strive to offer a contemporary outlook for the taste makers and young professional buyers who value high design.”

The project will be developed by MRR 1326, a company owned by Anand Mahindra and real estate developers Rotem Rosen and Zahi Hagag. The interiors will be designed by Gabellini Sheppard.
