The "56 Leonard Street" Building - Herzog and De Meuron

This is this the design for the "56 Leonard Street" building which was just recently released. This 57 story residential building will will be erected in downtown NewYork and is set to be finished by 2010. The building was designed by the Swiss architects Herzog and De Meuron. They designed the building with each floor stacked on top of each other but each is a little off-set creating drastic balcony's and overhangs. The architects also payed special attention to the ground level as well; the entrance feature a custom sculpture and the lobby has a private small for residents. The homes will range from 1,430 square feet to 6,380 square feet, and costing as much as a million dollars. Pictures via Design Boom.
