Renzo Piano’s stunning and skillfully engineered 30-storey condominium in SoHo moves to the next level

Sales have commenced on a project that marks the very first New York City residential building for the Pritzker Prize winning architect Renzo Piano.

Development partners Bizzi & Partners Development, Aronov Development and Halpern Real Estate Ventures have launched initial sales for the condominium residences, 565 Broome SoHo, a stunning and skillfully engineered 30-storey, 290-ft tall structure with dual set-back curved glass towers. 

"I am thrilled to announce a first for the New York City residential market; an extraordinary work of art by my longtime friend Renzo Piano and his team at RPBW,” said Davide Bizzi, CEO of Bizzi & Partners Development. “Today marks the launch of a rare and exciting opportunity for discerning buyers who seek the finest example of architecture, design and luxury amenities within the condominium market today.”

With interiors by renowned Parisian design firm RDAI, 565 Broome SoHo represents the height of vision and sophistication. Both Davide Bizzi and Renzo Piano, who have collaborated on three other projects around the world, recognized early on that 565 Broome Street represented an exciting residential opportunity that would change the face of SoHo.

“I was immediately drawn to this site and inspired by its natural surroundings with the harmonious flow of the river to the west, unobstructed views all around, and the ability to create a building that actually breathes air and light,” says Renzo Piano, whose other notable New York City projects include the new Whitney Museum, the Morgan Library expansion and The New York Times building.

565 Broome SoHo’s two-tower scheme and strategic orientation afford unobstructed 360 degree views of the Hudson River, historic SoHo, midtown Manhattan, Tribeca and the World Trade Center.

The entire structure is clad in low-iron glass that affords residents a far clearer and crisper view than seen through typical windows. The curved glass corners found in many of the residences and amenity spaces are void of any mullions that Mr. Piano says “make you feel like you are flying.”

With significant consideration for function, floor plans and ceiling heights for all 115 residences were designed in order to make optimal use of space and views. The floors throughout the residences are six-inch white oak plank floors. For the ultimate living experience, a select number of residences boast enormous private terraces with 25-ft private, saltwater pools and outdoor living rooms that flow seamlessly from the interior living spaces.

“Renzo Piano's 565 Broome SoHo will redefine the downtown Manhattan skyline and set the bar for design and lifestyle for years to come,” says Susan de França, president and CEO of Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. “Sleek and light-filled, 565 Broome SoHo represents an entirely new paradigm in high-rise condominium living in downtown Manhattan."

The RDAI and RPBW-designed triplex sales gallery is located a short distance from 565 Broome Street at 372 West Broadway in SoHo.
