Renzo Piano's 565 Broome SoHo has amenities to match its refined design

We wanted to design a building that plays with the light and the city of New York, so that the people living in the residences will enjoy the views and feel immersed into it and at the same time feel protected.
– Elisabetta Trezzani

The newly completed 565 Broome SoHo residential tower, designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW), has a luxury and high-tech amenities offering in line with its sleek and refined design.

The tower is located on the western edge of New York's SoHo district and north of Tribeca, offering residents views across Manhatten and over the Hudson River.

To make the most of the views, RPBW built curved glass corners into the design, floor-to-ceiling windows and thin mullions that minimise obstructions.

Elisabetta Trezzani, RPBW partner-in-charge of the project, said: “We wanted to design a building that plays with the light and the city of New York, so that the people living in the residences will enjoy the views and feel immersed into it and at the same time feel protected."

The 300ft (91m) tower houses 115 residences – comprising studios, four-bedroom homes, duplexes and penthouses – spread across 30 floors.

The residences are variously outfitted with white oak, lava stone kitchen counters and Calacatta marble bathrooms.

Elsewhere, the tower boasts a lobby with limestone flooring and white oak elements, a conservatory with white oak flooring, black olive trees and climbing jasmine and a courtyard with flowering dogwood tree with moss varieties, ivy and wisteria vines.

Residents also have access to 13,600sq ft (1,300sq m) of amenities, which RPBW says is a more comprehensive offering than anywhere else in the local area.

Its wellness offerings include a fitness centre, a yoga studio and a heated, 55ft (17m) indoor swimming pool.

There is a limestone- and cedar-outfitted spa with a sauna, a steam room and treatment rooms, as well as a spa terrace landscaped with hornbeam trees, native flowers and grasses.

Also landscaped – with a green wall – is an interior lounge with a library and a bar.

For drivers, there's a private gated driveway with automated parking facilities and electric charging points, while for cyclists there are spaces for storing bikes.

The building also has facilities to ensure that it diverts more than 90 per cent of waste away from landfills, incinerators and the environment.
