Renzo Piano-Designed Condo To Become First High-End Residential Zero Waste Building In NYC
Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano’s first residential building at 565 Broome Soho is nearing completion in New York City—and it’s expected to become the city’s first high-end residential Zero Waste Building. That eco-friendly distinction—achieved through the diversion of over 90 percent of waste from landfills, incinerators and the environment—will be complemented by other green features such as ample daylighting, electric vehicle charging stations, and refillable water bottle stations created with the goal of eliminating all plastic water bottle use in the building. The light-filled, zero-waste condo will be sheathed in low-iron glass and embrace 360-degree panoramic views of the Hudson River, One World Trade Center and beyond.
Developed by global real estate firm Bizzi & Partners Development, Aronov Development and Halpern Real Estate Ventures, 565 Broome Soho comprises 112 residences that range from studios to four-bedroom condominium homes. Renzo Piano Building Workshop worked alongside Parisian interior design firm Rena Dumas Architecture Interieure to create an airy, light-filled building that hearkens back to the early industrial Soho lofts. Tall ceilings soar to heights of over 10 feet, while floor-to-ceiling ultra-transparent glass windows emphasize the spacious feel.
Residents will be treated to a diverse suite of amenities that include a heated, 55-foot indoor swimming pool; a fitness center; steam rooms and a sauna; and lush spaces like the landscaped outdoor terrace and the interior landscaped lounge with a 92-foot-tall ceiling and living green wall. The building will also be equipped with automated parking technology.
The residential interiors will be dressed with six-inch white oak plank floors, custom wood entry doors, a custom-designed kitchen with white oak cabinetry and high-end fixtures, and Calcacatta Caldia marble slab walls and flooring in the master bathrooms. Pricing at 565 Broome Soho starts at $2,075,000 for a 990-square-foot bedroom and goes up to $40,500,000 for the penthouse residence at 6,655 square feet.
