Features

A 75-foot pool overlooks the building's massive terrace;
It was a long time coming but the jagged, Herzog & de Meuron-designed skyscraper at 56 Leonard affectionately known as the "Jenga building" is nearly finished and now has revealed its enrapturing 17,000-square-foot amenity package. Seeing the newly released renderings —they were well worth the wait.

The stunning 60-story condominium tower was co-developed by Hines and Alexico and began construction in early 2008. After some economic hiccups, the structure topped out in 2015, and in the next few months will complete its staggering number of luxury apartments —145 in total— with a collection of 10 penthouse units crowning its top floors. Among the skyscraper's many unique features is a mirrored bean-shaped sculpture designed by renowned artist Anish Kapoor that seems to support the structure's foundations.

These stunning photos captured by Alexander Severin show a strikingly opulent aesthetic of raw concrete, mosaiced silver, bronze, and warm woods. The material palette provides much austere modesty —yet the scale of the spaces and rounded/curving forms make the spaces striking and unique.

The primary amenity floors span the ninth and tenth and are connected by a one-of-a-kind circular concrete staircase. The space includes a 75-foot swimming pool with an adjoining landscaped outdoor sun deck, a hot tub, a fitness center with yoga studio, steam and treatment rooms, a library lounge, an indoor/outdoor theater, a private dining salon, a catering kitchen, a conference center, and a children’s play area.

Given the sumptuous recreational spaces and the voluminous, light-filled-interiors, it isn't a surprise that nearly all the building's sponsor units have already been spoken for.
