It’s been eight months since Bjarke Ingels’s undulating Harlem rental building broke ground on East 126th Street, and just long since there’s been any news from the site. But new photos from Field Condition show that work is moving right along. The building will top out at 11 stories and stands at about three now. As is, building’s slight concave curve, the signature Bjarke Ingels funky design, is already noticeable.
At the groundbreaking event for the building, at 146 East 126th Street between Lexington and Third avenues, Ingels said the interiors of the building were inspired by his recent travels, bringing in a “cacophony of Caribbean colors” to the entranceway, elevator lobby, and mailbox area. The apartments themselves will be more subdued.
The building is expected to be complete in 2018. For more pictures of the site check out Field Condition’s website.
