56 Leonard Street
- 2000 - 5500 Sq Ft
The most distinctive new condominium buildings in all of Manhattan is arguably 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca. It is an 821 feet (250 m) tall, 60-story skyscraper and with its cantilevered balconies it has been nicknamed as the Jenga Building. Architecture and custom interiors by were accomplished by The Pritzker Prize-winning Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron who describes the building as “houses stacked in the sky”.
The tallest structure in Tribeca, this 60-story expression of sculpted surfaces and sparkling glass even has an original Anish Kapoor sculpture at its base. The 145 unique condominium residences, originally priced between US$3.5 million and US$47 million range in size from 1,418 to 6,400 square feet (131.7 to 594.6 m2) and will include 2 to 5 bedrooms each with private outdoor space. The units have soaring 11’- 14’ ceilings and breathtaking panoramas of the cityscape, rivers, bridges and beyond. The complex has 17,000 square feet of amenities including a 75’ lap pool with a sundeck, gym, screening room, lounge, private dining room and playroom. A Global Landmark redefining New York living.
Secondary sales of condominiums are now closing, and back in June 2013 the penthouse at 56 Leonard went into contract for US$47 million, making it the most expensive residential property ever sold below Midtown Manhattan.
