For those who think affordable housing and creative design don’t go together, this Long Island City rental from ODA Architects could very well change their minds. Known as 2222 Jackson Avenue, the 175-unit, 11-story building features the firm’s signature stacked cube shape and an exposed concrete facade that “maintains the structure’s seeming ability to change shape as natural light plays with the unique silhouette of the structure,” according to the teaser site.

As of tomorrow, 35 apartments here will be up for grabs through the city’s affordable housing lottery. Units will range from $850/month studios to $1,274/month three-bedrooms, quite the deal considering residents will be living right across from MoMA PS1 in one of the city’s trendiest ‘hoods.
