Jenga Tower in New York

In New York a 250-meter high skyscraper project was created by Jacques Herzog & Pierre de Meuron called 56 Leonard Street. The building, however, is more commonly known under the name it adopted, or Jenga Tower, because its appearance closely resembles the famous building from the arcade game Jenga.



The building with 57 floors is composed of cubes, a special similarity to the game is visible in the upper parts of it, where there are 10 penthouses arranged in such a way that they allow for almost panoramic view around.

The building has 145 apartments ranging from 131 to 594 square meters and priced from 3.5 to 50 million dollars.

Work on the tower started in 2008, but before the end of the year it was stopped due to the financial crisis. After almost 4 years, the work resumed, which was finally completed in 2016.

On 1600 square meters of public space on the 9th floor and 10th floor there are, among others 20-meter pool, cinema room, private restaurant and children's playground. The building will be served by 7 elevators.
