Starchitecture geeks, get excited. Thirty years after he published Delirious New York, Rem Koolhaas is bringing his Office for Metropolitan Architecture?and the adorable hipster army that fills its ranks?to Manhattan to build us yokels some apartments. That's not news, but this is: the teaser website for 23 East 22nd Street has gone live, and the plans will be revealed to the public in mid-to-late June. Wait, 23 East 22nd Street? Isn't that the towering One Madison Park? Why yes, yes it is. If you'll recall, the developers decided to push ahead with an additional 20-story building once the 60-story glass tower's condos sold for 87 gajillion dollars each. The Koolhaas annex will reportedly have "zigzag units with different ceiling heights" and "balconies that stretch across multiple floors." In short, Rem is going to out-crazy fellow Dutch starchitect Ben van Berkel's splashy Manhattan debut. Sorry, brosef!
