ODA’s Futuristic Midtown Tower Features ‘Private Sky Gardens’

ODA Architecture is throwing back to the Space Age with its latest designs for a tower at 303 East 44th Street, which is being developed by Triangle Equities. The top half of the building will feature 16-foot gaps between every two floors that are separated by white beams, The Real Deal reports. The spaces between the floors will be turned into private, outdoor sculpture gardens. “There’s going to be a time in New York City where living without a substantial outdoor space is just going to be unacceptable. It’s going to be like living in the suburbs without a backyard,” ODA principal Eran Chen told TRD. “All these towers that don’t have them are going to lose their value.” The 600-foot-tall building will have 41 floors, with the lower half of the building devoted to one- and two-bedroom apartments, and full-floor units starting on the 23rd floor. Five of the outdoor private gardens are separated by two floors each, and those apartments have about 2,800 square feet of space, while the garden measures 1,400 square feet. The penthouse has access to the sixth garden.

Elio Motors’ Futuristic Three-Wheeled Car

Founded in 2008 by Mr. Paul Elio, Elio Motors set out to provide affordable transportation to those commuters seeking an alternative while providing vital American jobs. The sleek three-wheeled car looks futuristic, but, as its creator acknowledges, it uses no new technology. What makes the Elio Motors vehicle unique is its ultra-high fuel economy and an ultra-low price tag: $6,800. The vehicle promises to deliver as much as 84 miles per gallon of gasoline for highway driving. It accelerates as quickly as many cars on the road – to 100 miles per hour in 9.6 seconds, according to the company. Urban fuel economy is estimated at 49 miles per gallon. Elio is targeting the U.S. market but hopes to eventually ship internationally.
