The structure’s design is dominated by a series of stepped tubular volumes that alternate between a sleek curved glazed façade and wraparound balconies. At night, the concave recesses of the parking level create a decorative wall of light.
“Buildings at this scale house a community of people who live, work, and play from what they consider home,” ODA founding principal and executive director Eran Chen said in a statement. “This new lifestyle is formed by a building that is shaped to be flexible, create strong connections, and allows for diverse activities.”
When completed, 633 Southeast Third Ave could be the tallest tower in Fort Lauderdale, surpassing 499-foot 100 Las Olas.
OMA and Dependable are also collaborating on another Fort Lauderdale property: Ombelle, a 43-story twin-tower luxury rental property that is a 10-minute walk from the city’s Brightline station.
Alchemy Properties works magic on the Upper West Side
Cookfox Architects has wrapped up exterior construction at 378 West End Avenue, Alchemy Properties’ new luxury residential development on New York City’s Upper West Side.
The 18-story building combines façades from three distinct structures—an existing 1915 Palazzo-style building, the historic Collegiate Church, and a new tower to the east.
There will be 58 units—ranging from one- to six-bedroom layouts, plus a series of penthouses—and three floors of amenities, including squash and basketball courts, a 75-foot saltwater pool, and an in-house recording studio .
More than $300 million in contracts have been signed since sales launched in the spring, including one for a $26 million penthouse. Three model residences are available for viewing—one of which crosses all three parts of the development.
One One Eight goes green in the East Village
Acacia 118 has launched One One Eight, a four-duplex property on First Street in New York City’s East Village. It was designed by Freyer Collaborative Architects as a net-zero building, with the amount of energy used each year roughly equal to the amount generated on-site.
One One Eight incorporates several eco-conscious elements, such as energy-efficient Schüco windows, interior and exterior insulation, and continuous fresh-filtered air with heat exchange.
The penthouse triplex, listed with Douglas Elliman for $5.855 million, is a three-bedroom, three-bath residence encompassing the building’s mezzanine and eighth and ninth floors. Its gourmet kitchen is outfitted with appliances from Miele, Bosch, and Bertazzoni; plus Artemis White marble countertops and European oak cabinetry from Alta Cucine.
The spacious third floor is configured as a media room but could serve as a gym or home office, per the listing, while a roof garden features a standalone kitchen with an electric BBQ range and wet bar, as well as plumbing for a lap pool or Jacuzzi.
