New York-based ODA Architecture has revealed another playfully designed residential building, at 310 East 86th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Reminiscent of the firm’s previous commissions, which are characterized by expressive cubic design language, this new development features a series of boxy setbacks and graceful cantilevers that incorporate private outdoor spaces on the upper levels.
As YIMBY previously reported in March, initial plans called for an 80,000-square-foot structure, but were dramatically increased to nearly 145,000 square feet. Comprised of five neighboring parcels, the development will top off at 21 stories and is expected to yield 68 units. Residential amenities include a music room, a laundry room, a children’s playroom, and a teen-oriented communal lounge.
The building also includes lower-level commercial space, but its specific use type has not been confirmed. It is also unclear when construction is expected to conclude.
