The visually striking tower rising at 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca is an absolute eyecatcher as well as being the tallest building in the neighborhood. ‘The Jenga Building,’ as some call it, boasts a unique design by renowned Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron and was completed in 2017. Each floor is different and rotated from the levels above and below, resulting in an undulating, Jenga-like structure, which gave the building its nickname. Developed by Alexico Group and Hines, the 60-story tower houses 145 luxury residences, which are now available both for rent and sale. The top floors of 56 Leonard house ten unique penthouses with uninterrupted views of the city skyline and amenities like wood-burning fireplaces, exercise rooms, private elevators, and grand entry galleries. Each unit at 56 Leonard Street features a private balcony, and residents have access to luxury amenities like an infinity pool, spa, sauna, and steam rooms, fitness and yoga rooms, screening room, and a private dining area. The skyscraper also incorporates a specially commissioned work by acclaimed sculptor Anish Kapoor at its base. How much does it cost to live at 56 Leonard Street? The luxury residences at 56 Leonard Street are priced roughly between $3.5 and $20 million, while rentals start at $14,900 per month. In 2013, 56 Leonard broke the record for the priciest condo sale below Midtown Manhattan, when a mystery buyer paid upwards of $47 million for a top-floor penthouse. The buyer paid more than $6,000 per square foot for the four-bedroom unit, which includes a library and an exercise room, among other amenities. Insurance executive Dr. Reza Abbaszadeh reportedly owns two units at 56 Leonard, namely a $6.2 million, three-bedroom condo on the 35th floor, and a $17.3 million penthouse on one of the top floors. Architect Lee F. Mindel of the New York firm Shelton Mindel also lives on the building’s sixth floor.
