56 Leonard: Back from the brink

After nearly toppling, the “Jenga” tower is reaching new heights

April 01, 2013


http://therealdeal.com/issues_articl...rom-the-brink/


Excerpts:

The complexity of the Herzog & de Meuron design was a key reason the original partners tapped the national firm (Hines), said David Penick, managing director at Hines.

“The building will have exposed architectural concrete,” he said. “While that will give very rich and beautiful detail to the building, it will require careful management of concrete construction. The large cantilevers, which start on the seventh floor and reoccur on the upper levels … require extra care in terms of the engineering and construction methodology.”

The cantilevered floors complicate — and lengthen — the building process, Senbahar explained. The standard time to pour the concrete for one story of a regular building is two days; at 56 Leonard, it takes a week to complete each floor.


-----


With Hines on board, the team set about securing a construction loan. In January, a consortium of several banks led by Bank of America came through with $350 million. Construction is now well underway; 56 Leonard had begun to rise at press time.

The building’s sales gallery at 75 Leonard Street officially opened last month. The 145 homes range from 1,400 to 6,400 square feet, each with a private outdoor balcony. Asking prices range from $3.78 to $32 million. A 17,000-square-foot amenity space on the ninth and 10th floors has a 75-foot infinity pool, a landscaped outdoor sundeck and a hot tub with views of the Hudson River.


--------------


Here are the floor plans for the apartments:

Added 56 Leonard into my diagrams. Right now I'd estimate its height to be about 5 meters or 16 feet

Roof height used below

That diagram made me say wtf. But its nice to see this finally at street level. I could get pictures of this project once its really off the ground as I work in the area. Its going be long for this tower to top out though - one floor per week and 57 floors. How long did 1WTC reach the very top floor? One57 was quite fast topping out. But anyway, this is my favorite u/c tower right now, so I'm really looking forward to its progress

This tower is not really easy to compare with other towers.

Yup, my estimate is that it might be approximately 5 meters tall but I would really like to find some official plans to know for certain

This one may rise quickly then, although not as fast as 432 Park.
