Game on. Construction has started at HAP Investment Developers’ modular rental building in Washington Heights, whose exterior has a Tetris-like facade.

The Karim Rashid-designed building, located at 655 West 187th Street, is being constructed with 97 modular units shipped to New York from a factory in Pennsylvania, according to BuzzBuzzHome.

The Eran Polack-led firm demolished a row of wooden houses at the site to make way for the development, known as HAP 4.

The eight-story building will house 47 rentals, ranging from one- to three-bedroom apartments. Pricing has not yet been disclosed.

The 74,343-square-foot project will house a community facility on the ground floor, and plans also call for underground parking, a communal rooftop space and playground. [Curbed, BuzzBuzzHome] – E.B. Solomont
