Designed for New York-based luxury residential development firm Sumaida + Khurana, the 32,000-square-foot building is Ando’s first building in New York City. “The renderings offer the first glimpse of the building, which will incorporate materials that are Ando hallmarks: poured-in-place concrete, galvanized steel and voluminous glass.” says Sumaida + Khurana. “Ando has used these materials in his most notable projects including the Church of Light in Osaka, the recently completed school of art, design and architecture at the University of Monterrey and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.”

The building will rise seven stories and include a large, rooftop terrace. It will have eight highly individualized, luxury residences with bespoke interiors. Each residence features two to five bedrooms and will range between 1,900 to more than 5,000 square feet.
