swiss firm herzog & de meuron has revealed the first interior photographs of ’56 leonard’, the 60-story jenga building sited in new york’s tribeca neighborhood.
the tower which began opening to residents last year — has been nicknamed the ‘jenga building’, a moniker derived from its cantilevered balconies. as part of the development, artist anish kapoor has designed a two-story sculpture that will be sited outside the building’s lobby at ground level.
other on-site amenities encompass a library lounge, an indoor/outdoor theater, a private dining salon, a catering kitchen, a conference center, and a children’s play area. rising to a total height of 796 feet (243 meters), the 145-unit tower is topped with 10 penthouses that offer uninterrupted views across the city. each of these residences has wood-burning fireplaces, grand entry galleries, and private elevator access. take a tour inside the building in the new images below.
