Ritzy condos earn ODA Architecture slew of design awards

ODA Architecture – the firm headed by Eran Chen and the brains behind buildings such as the Lower East Side’s 110 Norfolk and Dumbo’s 10 Jay Street – has scooped up a whole bunch of awards at the Society of American Registered Architects, NY Design Awards.

The architectural firm announced this morning that they had won a total of six awards.

The projects that were awarded were: Kent Avenue, Brooklyn; East 44th Street, Manhattan; 10 Hubert, Manhattan; Bushwick II, Brooklyn; 2222 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City and Merchant’s Wharf, Toronto.

More information regarding the awards was not immediately available.

The wins coincide with last week’s unveiling of the firm’s designs for a triplex penthouse at 172 Madison Avenue – the 33-story in-progress condo building being developed by Tessler Developments – which ODA has innovatively dubbed the Madison Avenue Penthouse.

The 5,623-square-foot penthouse has yet to hit the market (a smaller penthouse is asking $14.5 million). But renderings posted on ODA Architecture’s website illustrate glass walls, towering ceilings, and a very swanky staircase. While the accompanying information mentions a tea room, a wine tasting room, and “slabs of marble, onyx, and wood adorning the penthouse.”
