New York City skyline, 56 Leonard is expected to set new benchmarks for luxury condominiums. Designed by the Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron, the residential tower has a Jenga-like appearance with multiple cantilevered layers throughout its height.
Forming balconies was particularly difficult because many go around corners. PERI accommodated the resulting unique challenges with custom solutions using standard components such as GT 24 Girders for the slabs and platforms supported by MULTIPROP aluminum shores, SRU Walers and SRS Spindles for transferring the loads at angles and for perimeter protection. Tight schedules and limited space for material storage added to the challenge.

“The 56 Leonard Street project had over 300 cantilevered balconies that required a perimeter protection system with custom solutions and PERI was able to meet the challenge.”
