Every architecture enthusiast knows what this post is all about. News in the architecture sphere travels like lightning today, especially when they contain information on star architects like Herzog and de Meuron Architects erecting a building on the 56 Leonard Street, shaping the tomorrow`s New York sky silhouette. This is undoubtedly the main reason for the attention payed to this raising masterpiece, a skyscraper in New York is not erected any day now anymore.
The establishment on 56 Leonard Street will definitely become one unmistakable landmark once it will be completed. It will also become the favorite item to be built in Minecraft most likely. The aesthetic values of the skyscraper can be considered quite controversial, the tower is not piercing through the skies as much as it jams itself into them. The bold rectangular silhouette is something that will not earn the sculptural adjective with ease but is something that the inhabitants and users will really love in exploitation.
The 56 Leonard Street is located in the legendary Tribeca neighborhood world renowned for sheltering numerous multi millionaires and celebrities of all kinds. The neighborhood satisfies the taste of celebrities through low rise townhouses this allowing the developers of the skyscraper to peek a look over them in the Lower Manhattan and Midtown and capture extraordinary expansive views.
The skyscraper will be 821 feet tall in the end, this height will be divided into 57 Floors. The constructions team have past over the 30th floor last week. The skyscrapers`shape will favor inhabitants because the apartments will gain privacy and tons of natural lighting through the facade`s game. The full list of apartments, features, floor plans and prices have already been published and they seem astonishing.
“Interior details at 56 Leonard are both discrete and sculptural—a range of subtly balanced finishes enhances and harmonizes the flow of spaces. The building’s exposed concrete is complemented by a basic palette of champagne window-walls, satin-etched glass, natural solid woods, travertine, Thassos marble, polished metals, black granite, high-gloss black lacquer accents and finished concrete columns that architecturally enhance each living space.”
As in any respectable residential ensemble the cherry will be on the top : “56 Leonard’s Ten Unique Penthouses encompass a wealth of special features: east-to-west skyline galleries to maximize views, spacious cedar-lined closets, wood-burning fireplaces, grand entry galleries and exercise rooms.”
