Designed by Herzog and de Meuron, the 56 Leonard apartment complex mentioned as “houses stacked in the sky”. It’s located in Tribeca and its completion expected due in 2010. The complex will house 145 residences in 57-story of highrise building.
Herzog and de Meuron designed just about every aspect of the interiors as well, from the 12-foot glass doors that open out onto your private deck, the massive floor-to-ceiling fireplaces—even the coloring of the individual interior elements. If you want to live in an apartment designed by the same folks that brought us one of the coolest works of architecture of the 20th century (and you’ve got $3.5 mil for a small, low shanty or $33 mil for a top shanty), this is your place.
