OMA to build its first residential high-rise in New York City 

Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas was in New York today to unveil his design for 23 East 22nd Street, a new luxury high rise in the Flatiron district that will rise immediately adjacent to the recently completed One Madison Park tower by Cetra-Ruddy architects with which it will share a lobby and building amenities.

The 24-storey building will include 18 residences, a Creative Artists Agency (CAA) screening room, pool and gym. The building will be distinguished in the skyline by its dramatic cantilevered floors. “Mirroring the traditional New York setback, the building’s form is at once familiar and distinctive," said OMA founder Rem Koolhaas. “The form provides a number of unexpected moments that appear at each step- balconies at the upper part of the building and floor windows at the lower part- providing a variety of unit types and features throughout the building."

The building is scheduled for completion in 2010
