David Von Spreckelsen had a very specific checklist when planning 121 East 22nd Street. The president of Toll Brothers’ City Living wanted an architecturally significant building, designed by an international firm with a presence in New York.

He was able to check off all of those boxes when he signed a deal with OMA Architecture, Rem Koolhaas’ Dutch firm, to take on the project.

The signature architectural feature of the 140-unit condo — which has a $450 million sellout — is its “deformed and prismatic” curtain wall windows on the corner of Lexington Avenue and 23rd Street.

Check out the above video to see more on the building, which straddles Gramercy Park and  NoMad.
