The concept is great but the shape of the building is silly looking. It's interesting though, it'd look better if it narrowed its way to the top but without losing the "stacked house" appearance...

Amazing project! After the Moma tower by Nouvel and the 23th street tower of Koolhaas/OMA this is another tower project of one of the world biggest architect. And then I don't even mention more projects like several of Foster. New York is building new architectural masterpieces again, and most of them in a kind of new york style. This city gives those architects new inspiration to do things done never before and fit into this city so well...

Yes, too young for that. And a 10 year window of "non-construction" can't really be considered a "period" of a city. But maybe since I come from Rome, my time perception of a city might be a bit different.

Agreed. Still not the biggest fan of this style.

woah. Good find. The night render is amazing. This building is not bad at all. It's different, I like that. Isn't that what we've been asking for? Hell yeah...

Wow - another eyecatcher for NYC

Maybe mods could change the thread title to "56 Leonard Street".

And what about the status? Based on the google pic and the blog by Herzog & de Meuron, this one's already u/c... but there still might be some site clearing going on. Anyway this doesn't appear just like a proposal to me.

This skyscraper is already under construction, but the construstion activity near the site is from a different building I think.

From what I recall from WNY, the building address is 56 Leonard St and the height has ranged from over 700 to something like 760 feet tall to just under 800 feet to over 800 feet. I guess we'll know in a few days.


Copy of ther earlier design for the Gazprom Tower in Sint-Petersburg.

10 years in a city like new york is ages - the city is young in european terms.

the city was literally bankrupt and everybody was leaving, and now it's on top of the world again.

Somehow I believe it won't look as pretty as in the render in real world.
