Herzog and De Meuron’s Tribeca Tower

Recently, the architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, responsible for the “bird’s nest” Olympic Stadium in Beijing, revealed their plans for a 57-story building of irregularly-stacked flats at 56 Leonard St. in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood.

The concept is “houses stacked in the sky,” and each apartment will have a unique floorplan as well as its own private outdoor space. The outcome is a mish-mash of cantilevers that the architects describe as a “pixelated vertical layering” look. The building is broken up into five “zones” from bottom to top: lobby, “townhouse” residences, amenities spaces, tower residences and penthouses, of which there are 10. Amenities will include a 75-foot swimming pool with adjoining sun deck, screening room, children’s play room, library and more. The double-height lobby will be sheathed in black granite.
