ODA has a habit of coming up with unusual tower designs and the New York City firm's latest proposal is no exception. Named 300 West Broward Blvd, it consists of an eye-catching residential project slated for Fort Lauderdale, Florida, that's made up of two connected towers.

Structurally, 300 West Broward Blvd will consist of a few parts. The lower levels will be taken up by a 10-story podium and on top of this will rest the two towers, linked by skybridge. We've no word on their exact height yet, but each of the towers will consist of 38 floors. Their facades will be made up of floor-to-ceiling glass, plus balconies and stucco wall panels. The podium itself, meanwhile, will be finished in perforated metal and sport quite a lot of greenery.

"The building design features two towers strategically positioned at the two highly visible corners of the site: one at the northwest corner of West Broward Boulevard and Southwest 4th Avenue and one at the southeast corner of Nugent Avenue," explains ODA. "As the south tower rises it angles towards the north tower, connecting the top 11 floors. This dramatic bridged massing creates a unique dynamic form and a symbolic gateway. It not only takes advantage of the best views the site has to offer but also creates an elegantly sculpted icon in the City's skyline. The void created between the towers lends it a compelling appearance and offers the practical benefit of view corridors through the building. The towers feature continuous balconies with panoramic views of the City and bring in ample natural light and air for all units."

Much of 300 West Broward Blvd's available interior space will be taken up by 956 residential units, including two floors hosting plush penthouse suites, plus there will be some retail space on ground level. As you'd expect for this kind of luxury project, the amenities will be significant too and will consist of an outdoor deck area with swimming pools, landscaping, and lounge areas. Additionally, there will be another lounge, a resident's library, and a health and fitness center.

We've no word yet on when the project is expected to be constructed but will keep you posted.

More beach blight? It still would be more filing cabinets for people. Rising sea levels are sending salt water into the drinking water sources on both coasts of Florida. At the current rate of Antarctic and Greenland glacier melting, this place will be underwater before the mortgages are paid off. It's already a Miami problem.

By removing a quarter of the building from the center, it adds structural loads to the towers, requiring extra structural support while giving the owner 25% less income for the square footage of property. I don't see how any "architect" could ever sell it to a property owner. Not to mention that they're oogly as sin. Funny how folks are still investing billions on what Global Warming Alarmists are calling "future flood plains" these days. I don't see any submarine ports on the bottom floors.
