Scandinavian architect Bjarke Ingels and The Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has been hired to design a residential project on East 125th St.

The site will be between Lexington and Third avenues opposite Pathmark.  It is known as Gotham Plaza and hosts the current DMV.

That contemporary 120,000 square-foot building, which opened in the fall of 2002, will remain.

New apartments will rise on the adjacent parking lot to its north on East 126th Street and perhaps cantilever above the low-rise Gotham Plaza structure.

There are preliminary sketches but no final renderings.  Upwards of 200 apartments will be built under the 80/20 program so that 20 percent are affordable.
