If this was a Chinese building, do you think they would finish one floor every 1 or 2 weeks?

I visited 56 Leonard's website again and they have some more renderings now. Apologies if they have been posted before, but I don't think they have been.

New Yorkers spending $300G on STORAGE in the basement of luxury skyscraper
http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/m...ucnese7YcaYuUN

Quote:
It’s a cellar’s market.

New Yorkers are spending more than the price of the average American home — on storage units.

Tribeca’s 56 Leonard just sold a 200-square-foot unit for $300,000. That’s $1,500 a square foot for a metal cage in the basement of the future luxury skyscraper.

Quote:
Buyers are paying $2,000 to $6,000 a square foot for homes in the high-rise, where a four-bedroom penthouse is in contract for $47 million.

For the subterranean storage, people are shelling out as much as $1,800 a square foot.

The building’s 76 basement cages start at $72,000 for 40 square feet and $214,200 for 119 square feet and can be combined to create larger underground closets.

They have no walls, carpeting or shelves but are made of tightly woven crates secured with padlocks. For a monthly maintenance fee of up to $20, they include electricity and security cameras.
Quote:
Meanwhile, the average sale price for existing homes nationwide was $260,600 in July, according to the National Association of Realtors.

For the price of the Tribeca storage closets, buyers could get a mountain home in Granby, Colo., where a five-bedroom, three-bath pad is on the market for $291,900. In Springfield, Ohio, an elegant three-story home with five bedrooms and four baths is available for $300,000.

But in a city where even a parking spot goes for $1 million, it’s no surprise that the storage vaults run steep.

I wonder what will clad the floors in between the glass? Probably concrete, I'd guess, by the renders.

I've seen #3 and #4 but not the first two, those are good finds!

And I'm now curious about the roof. That railing looks pretty utilitarian, but I wonder if the people living in the penthouse will have access to the roof? What an epic full-floor terrace that would make.

Is this like a secondary kitchen or wet bar? It would be incredibly unimpressive as the main kitchen of such an expensive home.

Usually people that can afford places like this don't cook for themselves often and generally don't want the kitchen in view like a normal residence. Most of the time, there is a separate "Chef's kitchen" where your Chef can do their cooking in private.

That's kind of what I was expecting (a separate chef's kitchen).

It's real fun to follow the progress this great project makes. Every floor that gets added to this tower gives it a total different shape. And when I don't check for a couple of weeks it doesn't matter that much

True, but we are talking about big money here. Didn't you read about someone who bought basement storage for $ 300,000.

The floor sections have concave edges? Interesting.

Yeah, I've always thought that the footprint of every floor was a square.

Sometimes you look at skyscrapers and you think....it must suck for those people living on the lower floors (when those are residential)...they have no views and just a few levels above some people have the best views in the whole city... But on this one...even living on those 10 first floors will make you look cool

I'd still rather live higher. Except if there's a fire!

I don't think I'd even notice the interior

Agreed, this looks like an IKEA set up...is that the decor of multi-million dollar apartments nowadays?
