Handel Architects' exoskeleton-clad building at 170 Amsterdam Avenue is one of the most interesting new buildings in the city, but the zig-zagging skin is more than just a cool-looking facade. Moving the support columns to the exterior freed up interior space, allowing for the 236 rental apartments to be as roomy as possible. At 490 square feet, the smallest studios are not exactly micro units, but the lack of interior columns allows for a completely open 21-foot-long living space. Yes, the columns partially block the view, but with floor-to-ceiling windows in every apartment, that's not a problem. Equity Residential started leasing in March, and move-ins began May 1. The building is about 20 percent leased, and the studios, like the one pictured above, have been one of the more popular apartments.
