251 first makes its statement by utilizing setbacks to create a number of private and shared terraces, and through its intentional use of light, air and the outdoors,’ explains ODA architecture, who is also responsible for designing the scheme’s interiors. ‘at its core, this innovative project addresses the adaptive nature of cities and the very real possibility of change when logic, imagination and dynamism are in alignment.’ the project is being developed by adam america real estate, slate property group, and vanke US, with construction expected to wrap up before the end 2016.
