Spectacular Amenity Spaces Revealed at Herzog & de Meuron's 56 Leonard
April 11, 2017
Quote:
It was a long time coming but the jagged, Herzog & de Meuron-designed skyscraper at 56 Leonard affectionately known as the "Jenga building" is nearly finished and now has revealed its enrapturing 17,000-square-foot amenity package. Seeing the newly released renderings —they were well worth the wait.

The stunning 60-story condominium tower was co-developed by Hines and Alexico and began construction in early 2008. After some economic hiccups, the structure topped out in 2015, and in the next few months will complete its staggering number of luxury apartments —145 in total— with a collection of 10 penthouse units crowning its top floors. Among the skyscraper's many unique features is a mirrored bean-shaped sculpture designed by renowned artist Anish Kapoor that seems to support the structure's foundations.




More DETAILS & PICTURE GALLERY here.

Not yet. The base is still awaiting that. I think the construction has to be 100% complete before they will install the sculpture. Anish Kapoor himself bought a $13.5 Million apartment on the 47th floor in the building so it would make sense that his own work would grace the building's entrance.

This tower is such a mess. NY is known for world-class architecture with elegance, sense and style. But it definitely doesn't need egomaniac starchitect authisms like 56 Leonard Street. It'll hopefully get hidden in the skyscraper jungle soon.

Eh, it certainly doesn't photograph well but isn't so offensive when you're actually down on the street. It draws the eye (in a pleasant way), and I'm still shocked I don't find it to be so garish. Maybe I've come around or maybe this is an admission of my horrible taste ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As with 432Park, people make a huge fuss about something that one really only notices from select vantage points.

It's certainly less of a letdown than 8 Spruce: It photographs beautifully but is rather muted, in person.

Although, I think maybe the latter has either become less brilliant over time or else one really needs to look at it on a sunny day.

To each its own, I think this is one of the best new buildings in NYC.

The first 2/3rds is a completely different style than the top so it looks awkward. And than on top of that, it's got those ugly balconies and even uglier white window frames. It's as if they went out of their way to make it as ugly as possible.

If this had been all staked irregular boxes like the top 1/3rd, but all the day down, and of course minus those white frames and balconies, it would have been a truly iconic building. They had it in their grasp but for some reason ruined it, that's what saddens me about it. So much potential... ruined.

Actually the bottom 1/3rd has the same irregularity as the top 1/3rd ... It works perfectly IMHO.

The bottom 1/5th maybe.

This building is so aesthetically sophisticated that it is a great pleasure to look at every time. Next to Maha Nakhon in Bangkok, it is my favorite skyscraper.
