I wish they used this type of facade for the WTC complex. Just beautiful.

I wonder if they chose to stagger only the top floors because from a distance the middle floors are not visible in the skyline so it would have been a waste of money to make the whole building that complex.

Not exactly, visually, the concept of this building is of a tower that begins relatively regular shaped and as it ascends to the sky, it progressively "deconstruct" . If they would made all irregular, they wouldn't have the same effect.

But the reason behind that is also a economic one, but not so much that the lower floors won't be visible and thus, they did them regular.

Usually, this luxury skyscrapers are stratificated in height, with smaller, less expensive units on the lower floors that become progressively bigger and more expensive as the tower goes up, crowned by very big and expensive penthouses in the lower floors.

This building reflects exactly that in the exterior. The lower floors having more regular, smaller and less expensive units and the tower is regular. Then at the middle of the tower, there are middle sized apartments, with the tower being a bit more irregular. Finally in the upper floors, where the tower is very irregular, the bigger, more expensive units. With higher ceilings, big terraces and each one very different of each other, as houses in the sky.

Actually, there's a good chance the bottom portion of the tower has a cantilever ratio with the upper floors, so to speak, and I bet the architects/engineers worked to maximize the craziness by playing with those numbers.

From Ny.Curbed today:

Tribeca's Jenga Tower Sells Its Last Pricey Penthouses
[...]
It took a little more than a year, but Tribeca's tallest residential tower, the Jenga-esque 56 Leonard Street, is now sold out. Its last two penthouses recently sold $17.7 million and $34.5 million respectively. The smaller of the two comes with four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and overlooks the East River with views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, and One World Trade Center. The bigger one comes with five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, and 700 square feet of outdoor space. Construction work on 56 Leonard Street began in 2007. It stands 60 stories tall, has 145 residences ranging in price from $3.5 million to $50 million, and has been designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Swiss architecture firm, Herzog and de Meuron. The building is scheduled to open next year.
