The event is happening on August 5 at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge.
ODA is behind the design of the building, which bears the firm’s familiar jagged, boxy structure, and stretches for almost the entire block.
Work has begun on the Bedford Hotel, whose blackened concrete structure will bring arches, undulating roof terraces, and a restaurant to the corner of Eastern Parkway and Bedford Avenue.
Facade work has not yet begun on the 63-unit building, which will have underground parking.
More restrained than many ODA designs, the building has a patterned brick facade and dramatic window surrounds.
Of the affordable apartments, there are 70 studios, 27 one-bedroom units and 24 two-bedroom units.
As skyscrapers sprout in Downtown Brooklyn and Long Island City, look to southern Brooklyn for value, said developers, designers and real estate agents at the Brownstoner & QNS Real Estate Conference.
Eligible incomes range from 80 percent to 165 percent of the area median income -- unusually high for Brooklyn.
Chen, the founding principal of ODA, which has been reshaping Brooklyn with their creative designs, will talk about how design affects development in Brooklyn and Queens in a keynote at the Brownstoner & QNS Real Estate Conference Wednesday, October 10.
A lottery has opened up for affordable units in an ODA-designed tower just south of the Williamsburg Bridge.
