World-renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano unveiled renderings for his first residential development in Manhattan earlier this year, and in the months since, construction crews have been busy preparing the site between Broome and Watts Streets for the 30-storey climb of two mirroring towers. The twin building complex dubbed 565 Broome SoHo is being brought to life by a development team consisting of Bizzi & Partners, Aronov Development, and Halpern Real Estate Ventures.
The interior design of the 115 residences will be a hybrid between the classic airy lofts of SoHo and the extravagant finishes that typify a luxury Manhattan condominium. Ranging from studios to four-bedroom layouts, with duplexes and penthouses also included, all units benefited from floor-to-ceiling windows. The curved glass corners amplify views of the vibrant city below and the Hudson River beyond.
Residents will enjoy a number of first-rate amenities, including a fitness centre, indoor heated pool, media room, children's playroom, and ground-level shops. A landscaped lounge and terrace complemented by a wet bar provide occupants with a dedicated space for communal mingling and relaxation. In total, 10,000 square feet of amenities will be offered.

Unlike most developments in Manhattan, the large lot permits room for a gated circular driveway that will serve as a grand entryway for residents. With a portfolio including major projects like the New York Times Building at 620 Eighth Avenue and The Shard in London, Piano's high-quality work will be a welcome addition to the SoHo skyline.
