I hope the residents put some greenery on their balconies. It could look cool.

Interesting Architecture In lower Manhattan there stands tall a building like no other. Built like blocks from a Jenga game. It's a unique structure on the NYC skyline. #56leonard #jenga #jengagame #structure #architecture #architecturephotography #arc by blackaviator2000, on Flickr

Sculptor Anish Kapoor snagged a $13.5M apartment at 56 Leonard
http://ny.curbed.com/2016/12/7/13869...oor-56-leonard

Quote:
According to city records, sculptor Anish Kapoor purchased a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom apartment on the tower’s 47th floor.

The apartment was originally listed for $15 million, but Kapoor snagged it for a discount, with a closing price of $13.5 million. According to the listing, it has north, south, and west exposures, with 12-foot ceilings and three private balconies.

The sale is also a bit of a homecoming for Kapoor: the sculptor, who’s perhaps best known for designing the Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago’s Millennium Park, will have another creation—the name of which is TBD—located in the base of the building.

The "wrinkled plastic" look didn't quite make it. And those ugly black dots ruin everything.

Seems like masterpieces always call for stodgy comments...

Compare this with the render. The render looks beautiful. The actual tower does not look beautiful. Seems like they went for the cheapest chinese materials they could find.

I think this building would have looked a lot better if the exposed concrete parts had been painted white.
