Rising In NYC: 60-Story "Jenga" Tower

Super-skyscapers are rising all over Manhattan and the "Jenga" tower is the city's latest hot building for jillionaires.
Tribeca’s soon-to-be-tallest building, 56 Leonard, sold more than 70% of its 145 units in just 10 weeks — including one to a Frenchman who got so excited just from looking at renderings of the unevenly shaped structure that he bought a $6 million apartment over the phone. The 60-story tower at Church St. was designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron — which also built Beijing’s “Bird’s Nest” Olympic stadium. The building will top out in 2014 — and prices are rising, too. A two-bedroom unit that sold for $3.6 million two months ago is now selling for $4.9 million.
The 57th floor penthouse is going for mere $24M.
