The office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) is about to see its very first residential building in New York City come to fruition with 121 East 22nd Street. The 18-story, 133-unit tower is being designed by partner Shohei Shigematsu and will be equipped with luxury amenities and a contemporary aesthetic.

Potential residents will be able to choose from units ranging from studio to five-bedrooms, each with white oak flooring, high ceilings, and textural finishes. Some residences will also have private outdoor space.

Kitchens feature Gaggenau appliances, polished quartz countertops, and acid-etched, back-painted glass cabinetry with custom millwork interiors. Master bathrooms will feature marble countertops, white oak cabinetry, polished chrome fixtures, and acid-etched glass shower doors.

Upon leaving their homes, residents will be met with a wide range of luxury amenities including an indoor pool, a landscaped courtyard, a rooftop terrace with a fire pit and grill, a fitness center, and a children’s playroom. LIV unLtd, an offering from the founders of Abigail Michael Concierge, will provide a five-star concierge service. Additional amenities include automated indoor parking, bike and private storage, and a 24/7 attended lobby.

121 East 22nd Street sits at the nexus of Gramercy and the Flatiron District, two sought-after neighborhoods. The building’s façade is unique in its use of intricately folded floor-to-ceiling windows at its corner to provide views of both the sky and the street.  As you move away from the corner in either direction, the building takes on a more historic look through the use of punched windows, meant to echo the facades of its pre-war neighbors.

The building is close to a variety of parks, restaurants, shops, and eight major subway lines. Prices for the units range from $1.2 million up to $10.5 million. 121 East 22nd Street is scheduled for completion in Fall 2018.
