56 Leonard Street, New York / Herzog & de Meuron!

This 57-story residential in the Tribeca area will house 145 residences, each one with its own unique floor plan and private outdoor space. This typology makes the building look like a stack of houses, away from the traditional skyscraper form. I wonder how the concrete structure works on this building, which was done by consultant firm WSP Cantor Seinuk (who also worked on the Freedom Tower).

Site Preparation:  Spring/Summer 2008
Construction Commences:  Fall 2008
Projected Occupancy:  Fall 2010
