Known for his work on The New York Times Building, the Whitney Museum, and the Morgan Library expansion, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano has completed his first residential building in NYC at 565 Broome Street. The Soho tower has 115 residences, ranging from studios to four-bedroom condos. Uber’s Travis Kalanick and tennis star Novak Djokovic have already scooped up units in the building, where sales launched last September.

Renzo Piano’s goal with the project was to create a building “shaped by light.” To that end, the design features conjoined glass structures with curved corners and a gap between them to bring more light in and offer 360-degree views of the Hudson River and beyond. The windows use a unique “low-iron” glass with “crystal-like sheen and clarity” that takes on the color of the weather from the exterior while allowing for ultra-clear views from the interior.

Piano’s firm, Renzo Piano Building Workshop, partnered with Paris-based Rena Dumas Architecture Interieure (RDAI) for the interior design. Each residence features an open plan with white oak plank floors, custom wood entry doors, marble-clad bathrooms, 10-foot+ ceiling heights, and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.

The 17,000-square-foot amenity package includes a 92-foot-tall indoor conservatory with green walls and three black olive trees, a 55-foot saltwater pool, a gated Porte-cochere that leads to an automated parking garage, a children’s playroom, fully-equipped fitness center, and landscaped outdoor terrace.

As 6sqft previously reported, 565 Broome Street was the first luxury condo development to partner with NYC-based consulting firm Think Zero with the aim of becoming Manhattan’s first Zero Waste-certified residential building. It was developed by real estate firm Bizzi & Partners Development, Aronov Development, and Halpern Real Estate Ventures.
