Newest curving apartment block is the latest project designed by Herzog & de Meuron, in collaboration with developer Ian Schrager. Planned for a site overlooking the Hudson River, the building will offer 49 luxury homes in a building billed as “curvaceous, sensual, free-flowing, seductive and sexy”.
A “sense of purity and pristiness” can be noticed through an ondulating façade of large windows framed by white concrete.

“The courtyard is one of the many features that sets 160 Leroy apart from all other new residences in the city,” says Schrager in a statement. “It’s a separate intense reality. The experience of arriving at 160 Leroy will be transformative.”
