Renzo Piano’s dual-tower condo project in Soho is now a few floors above ground, construction site photos by Field Condition have revealed. The two 30-story towers that make up this condo, will stand atop a common podium, which is now visible at the construction site.
565 Broome Street marks Renzo Piano Building Workshop’s first residential project in New York City. The condo will bring 115 apartments to Soho with units here ranging from studios to four-bedrooms. Sales got underway in September last year with condos starting at just under $1 million.
A bunch of condos here are already in contract, according to StreetEasy, and prices on currently available units range from $2.2 million for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit and go up to $14 million for a four-bedroom condo.
565 Broome SoHo, as the project is officially known, came about in early 2014, when the development team purchased this eight-parcel site for $130 million. Renzo Piano was announced as the architect in the summer of 2015. The first detailed renderings emerged in the spring of 2016, and the project has been moving forward steadily ever since.
As the first few floors of the condo are going up now, so too are some of the amenities including the 55-foot saltwater swimming pool, which was dropped in place by a crane last week. Other amenities here will include a landscaped terrace, steam and sauna rooms, and a media room.
Earlier this year we learned that tennis player Novak Djokovic would be among the first new residents at the condo. Construction is expected to wrap sometime next year.
