Some architecture firms can be very secretive, but ODA Architecture is not one of them. In fact, the Observer notes that ODA founder Eran Chen seems to have a problem with oversharing. Last month, he posted a rendering of a building in Long Island City before he should have, and yesterday, he did it again, this time with a building on Third Avenue at 82nd Street. After seeing the rendering on Facebook, the Observer reached out to the firm, only to be told that the image was not supposed to be shared. Oops! The rendering shows 1444 Third Avenue, a site that is currently occupied by a four story, nine unit tenement that sold last summer to DRK Third Avenue LLC for $7.5 million. It's zoned for 26,000-square-feet, so we may very well see the above building.
