Gothamist: 56 Leonard Delivers Luxury, Vertigo

Everyone is talking about the Herzog & de Meuron’s 56 Leonard reveal, the apartment complex that looks like it was designed by a Gehry-influenced Dr. Seuss. The building will be a 57-story residential complex in Tribeca, housing 145 residences, each with its own unique floor plan and private outdoor space. The architects describe the units as “houses stacked in the sky,” but they aren’t for those scared of heights.

Come Fall 2010, residents will start calling the $650 million luxury building home, and Curbed reports that residences, all 2 to 5-bedrooms, will range from $3.5 million to $33 million.

Even with floor-to-ceiling fireplace hearths, a library, a 75-foot swimming pool, a screening room, a yoga studio and a “Tribeca Tot Room” for the kiddies
