renzo piano completes '565 broome soho', his first residential building in new york city

renzo piano has completed ‘565 broome soho’, a luxury condominium building in new york. the project, which is piano’s first residential building in the city, contains a total of 115 units, ranging from studios to four-bedroom homes. the design comprises a pair of conjoined glass structures with curved corners, resulting in light-filled residences that offer encompassing views of the hudson river, one world trade center, and beyond. to achieve this, a ‘low-iron’ glass with crystal-like sheen and clarity was selected for the external façade.

developed by global real estate firm bizzi & partners development, aronov development, and halpern real estate ventures, 565 broome soho includes a private gated driveway with entrance to a covered porte-cochere. the building also includes the latest automated parking technology with 40 parking spots, each of which is equipped with a full capacity electric charging station. importantly, the development is seeking to become the first high-end residential ‘zero waste’ building in new york city, which is defined as achieving more than 90% diversion of waste from landfills, incinerators, and the environment.

on site wellness amenities include a heated, 55-foot indoor swimming pool; changing rooms; steam rooms and sauna; and a fitness center. residents can also enjoy a landscaped outdoor terrace, an interior landscaped lounge with 92-foot high ceiling and a live green wall, library, and wet bar. additional conveniences include a children’s playroom, a 24-hour concierge and attended lobby, a common laundry room, and bicycle storage for up to 76 bikes.

all of the 115 residences have been designed to maximize space and views. RPBW and interior designer RDAI referenced the open layout of early industrial soho lofts by utilizing ultra-transparent glass for the oversized windows and neutral tones to communicate ‘harmony, calm, and expansiveness’. see designboom’s previous coverage of the project here.
