May 23rd marked the completion of 121 East 22nd Street, an 18-story, 133-unit Gramercy condominium developed by Toll Brothers City Living and Gemdale USA. The building, designed by Shohei Shigematsu of OMA New York, is the firm's first ground-up project in a city that, 41 years ago, inspired OMA founder Rem Koolhaas to publish “Delirious New York,” a “retroactive manifesto” that ranks among the most influential works of architectural theory of the twentieth century.

Closings began in February 2019 at the chiseled condominium at an average of $2,049 per square foot. At a time when many of the city's new development condos are reporting closings below their listed prices, 121 E 22nd stands out for having 24 of its 32 recorded sales coming in marginally above their sticker prices.

Sales got off to a brisk start, and remaining availabilities range from $1.31 million for a studio to $9.5 million for a three-bedroom penthouse with a spectacular private roof terrace. At an average price of $2,394 per square foot, 121 E 22nd comes in well above the Gramercy average of $1,685 per square foot.

The apartment's interiors live up to their striking shell, and a highly desirable and central address also helps. The angled cutaways lend an electrifying presence at the corner of East 23rd Street and Lexington Avenue as well as create an equally immersive experience inside the apartments. Uniform arrays of floor-to-ceiling windows burst into Deconstructivist geometries at the corner, generating unique interior experiences on every floor. Moreover, slanted rows of balconies zig-zag around the inner courtyard to form a volumetric experience unlike any other in the city.

The city’s zoning code drove the architects to conform to conventional structural massing, yet did not deter them from crafting a diverse array of apartment layouts ranging from studios to five-bedrooms. In any floor plan, broad square windows channel abundant natural light in. Time-tested touches like Gaggenau appliances, polished quartz countertops, and acid-etched, back-painted glass cabinetry with custom millwork interiors, temper the minimalist geometries of the kitchens. Bathrooms balance stark modernism with luxuriant finishes, which include marble countertops, bookmatched Calacatta Paonazzo marble panels at the walls and tub decks, white oak cabinetry, polished chrome Kallista fixtures, and acid-etched glass shower doors.

The stylistic theme of sumptuous minimalism extends to resident amenities, which include a round-the-clock attended lobby, a lounge, a private dining room with a catering kitchen, a fitness center, a screening room, an indoor pool, and a children’s playroom.
The landscaped courtyard is cozily nested at the “valley bottom” of the angled courtyard canyon to provide quiet seclusion from the bustling city. A rooftop terrace with a fire pit and grill exposes residents to panoramic views of a metropolis that Rem Koolhaas codified, celebrated, and elevated on the pages of “Delirious New York.”
