In addition to providing a shiny, bean-shaped orb at the foot of 56 Leonard Street, it appears as if acclaimed sculptor Anish Kapoor will also park himself in a sprawling, 3,576-square-foot residence on the 47th floor of the giant Jenga building in Tribeca.


In the world where art & architecture intersect, this pairing is an aesthetic gold-medal winner. 56 Leonard is a 60-story tower designed by Pritzker-Prize winning architects Herzog & de Meuron.


The sculpted surfaces and glass construction contains 145 condominium units, each with private outdoor space, soaring 11-14-foot ceilings and 17,000 square feet of amenities including a 75-foot lap pool with a sundeck, gym, screening room, lounge, private dining room and playroom.


And as if all that wasn’t enough claim to luxury residential development fame, Kapoor’s intriguing, 40-ton steel sculpture at the base of the building affirms the lofty artistic intention of this building. Even the website for 56 Leonard delivers a stellar performance.


Hat tip to Luxury Listings for first reporting that Kapoor paid $13.57 million for the 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom unit that was originally listed for sale for $15 million. In addition to three-sided exposure that lends to stunning views of the Hudson River, Manhattan and the Freedom Tower, the condo is awash in Appalachian white oak flooring and has three private balconies.


Kapoor, who was born in Mumbai and who has worked in Britain since the 1970s, was knighted in 2013. He has delivered some of the most provocative work of any living artist today, including Chicago’s popular “Cloud Gate” sculpture, aka “The Bean.”
