56 Leonard is one of the most distinctive landmarks on the Lower Manhattan skyline. The building is a staggered series of irregular boxes, with cantilevers ranging from 10 feet to 25 feet, designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron – the practice behind the ‘Bird’s Nest’ Olympic stadium in Beijing. When complete, it will provide 145 luxury apartments in the Tribeca district, conceived by the architect as “houses stacked in the sky”.
