ODA New York are creating a landmark residential project in Brooklyn  

This residential project designed by ODA New York is poised to become a game changer in the rapidly gentrifying Bushwick area of Brooklyn in New York.

In an district populated by two and three family row houses and small apartment buildings, ODA has designed the largest residential development project ever built in this part of Brooklyn by an enormous margin.

This 379,675 gsf seven story 80/20 inclusionary mixed use building contains inner and outer courtyards, and most notably an expansive and distinctive roof top. The sloping angles create not only a more organic terrain, but also allows for direct horizontal connections from the upper four floors, providing a fluid and immediate connection to the outdoor space, giving a penthouse feel to all the units on these floors. Making full use of this often neglected available space, the unique design was created with the goal of providing future residents many of the urban elements that the area is currently lacking. 

The project provides 392 residential units (123 studios, 228 one bedrooms, and 41 two bedrooms), creating 289,479 sq ft above ground, with 50% of the units having private outdoor space. Nestled in the centre will be an interior courtyard that will serve as a visual and physical connector, providing an additional 19,000 sq ft of outdoor recreational space which will include a park space, amphitheatre, fire pit and a terraced area.

The building will also provide 5,602 gsf of above ground retail with an additional 5,089 gsf below ground, plus parking.

Commenting on the project Eran Chen of ODA said: “The current wave of urban renewal in Bushwick gives us not only the opportunity but the responsibility to adjust old modes of living to our current ways of life. We aim to discover new territories that will attract the growing demands of young demographics, creating a strong sense of community and providing the kind of housing forms we all dream of.”

With this design, ODA New York has created a platform for connection and community within this decidedly urban environment, which will be a very welcome addition to an area already undergoing tremendous change.
