Spend a lot of time in New York and looking for a place to rest your head? If so, you might be interested in 565 Broome SoHo, the stunning new luxury residences currently under construction in the city’s arts and culture mecca.
Scheduled to go up within steps of the Hudson River and be ready for residents by the end of 2018, 565 Broome SoHo has seen world-renowned architecture firm Renzo Piano Building Workshop team up with Paris-based interior designers RDAI and Italian developers Bizzi & Partners.
With such projects as the London Bridge Tower (also known as The Shard), the Whitney Museum and the New York Times Building under its belt, Renzo Piano Workshop certainly has the know-how to deliver an incredible residential structure, even if it marks the firm’s first such venture in New York.
For 565 Broome SoHo, Renzo Piano Workshop has aimed to bridge the gap between the district’s past and present, with the 30-story twin towers located at the nexus of its traditional quarter and its west section. Encased in curved glass, the residences will be able to take in panoramic views of the river, the low-slung structures around them and downtown Manhattan, including the One World Trade Center.
There will be four types of accommodation – studios, four-bedroom homes, duplexes and penthouses – all of which will feature floor-to-ceiling windows made from low-iron glass, a design choice that will offer impeccable clarity. Corner units feature curved glass, giving them an especially unique view.
From the double-height lobby to the carefully thought-out materials chosen for the interiors, including Calacatta Caldia marble and white oak, no detail has been neglected. And these details reflect SoHo’s heritage, as well as its development into a vibrant, multicultural, modern-day hub for food, nightlife and the arts.
Amenities will include a 24-hour concierge, a private gated driveway and entrance with automated parking, an interior lounge with a library and wet bar, and a spacious indoor pool.
Units are priced between US$1 and $20 million, and tennis legend Novak Djokovic has even snagged a couple of units. Judging from the mockups, not to mention the specs just mentioned, the rest should move quickly, too.
