    Nicknamed the “Jenga-building” and the “tower of penthouses,” 56 Leonard’s design comes from the Swiss architectural firm of Herzog & de Meuron while working with the residential know-it-alls at Goldstein Hill & West. Currently, the concrete frame is approximately 700 feet tall with little more than 100 feet to rise before topping off. The floors progressively stagger at varying configurations creating cantilevered interior spaces as well as outdoor balconies for each of the residences.

    Took them a long time to get set for the final push. Looking forward to the final reveal. Much of the top floors will remain screened off until the the top floor is poured. Then the screen will move downward to protect the stripping out operations.

    True. People talk about what lots of classes of workers get paid without thinking about what their jobs are like in the various extremes of weather.

    Look at that cantilever in the second picture above. The top of this thing is a beast.
