Bjarke Ingels is about to make his mark on East Harlem.

The Danish starchitect’s namesake firm, Bjarke Ingels Group, is already designing 2 World Trade Center, and a massive, Durst Organization-developed tetrahedron on West 57th Street. Now, renderings for his latest design — for the Blumenfeld Development Group-developed 146 East 126th Street — are available, according to New York YIMBY.

The facade will look like a street-wall, YIMBY reported, and will undulate inward. The building will be T-shaped and part of it will cantilever over Gotham Plaza at 125th Street, which was also developed by Blumenfeld.

The 11-story building will span a total of 231,900 square feet and include 233 residential units, according to the website. [NY YIMBY] — Claire Moses
