53 West 53rd Street Begins to Get Its Glass, Now Rising Into Residential Floors

After a decade of waiting, Jean Nouvel’s 53 West 53rd Street, formerly known as the Torre Verre and now known as 53W53, is finally climbing into the New York City skyline. And while the tower only stands about a dozen floors at the moment — up from only a handful when YIMBY last checked in on the site this past June — installation of its iconic cladding and glass has already begun, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer streetscaper.

Construction Wraps on 60-Story, 145-Unit Residential Tower at 56 Leonard Street, TriBeCa

Construction is wrapping up on the 60-story, 145-unit residential tower at 56 Leonard Street, located on the corner of Church Street in TriBeCa. Tectonic’s latest photo, posted to the YIMBY Forums, shows that the exterior is practically complete, with the exception of the construction elevator and the façade that will go in its place. The 821-foot-tall building’s Jenga-like pattern of overhanging floors is now clearly visible. The upper floors were still sheathed in netting when YIMBY last brought you an update a year ago. The bold design is the work of Herzog & de Meuron. Alexico Group and Hines are the developers. All of 56 Leonard’s condominiums sold by late last year and occupancy is now underway.
