With limited development space and extremely high costs for whatever land is available, new construction south of 14th Street is harder to find than a block without froyo or artisanal coffee. Here’s a look at three buildings in the area generating the most buzz for their designs, prices, and extravagant luxury amenities.

The Schumacher, 36 Bleecker Street, NoHo
Size
20 condo units, 7 stories high
Cheapest unit
The low range starts at approximately $3.5 million for a two bedroom condo.
Priciest unit
Three penthouses will reportedly cost between $20 million and $25 million
What makes it special?
This conversion of a printing factory built in the mid-to-late 1800’s will feature a gym, roofdeck, and a hanging garden in it’s center courtyard, designed by landscape architect Ken Smith, who also designed the MOMA roof garden.
Who will live there?
Someone in search of luxury amenities and a bit of Zen in the heart of the Village (assuming a day around NYU students and tourists doesn’t provide instant relaxation for you).

leonard 56 Leonard St., Tribeca

56 Leonard St., Tribeca
Size
145 condo units, 60 stories high
Cheapest unit
A two-bedroom unit is currently listed for $4.4 million, though others are in contract just below the $4 million mark.
Priciest unit
The building features 10 total penthouses, and $28.5 million will get you one currently listed at 4,610 square feet.
What makes it special?
This long stalled-steel tower designed by Herzog & de Meuron has come back to the market in style, featuring a 75-foot infinity lap pool and a 25-seat indoor-outdoor theater.
Who will live there?
Anyone feeling nostalgic for Jenga will love the cascading steel and glass floors fitting together like the classic wood game. It’ll be sturdy, though, when it’s finished in two years, so poking it with your pinky won’t do much. Art lovers can also brag about the Anish Kapoor sculptor that lives at the base of the building.
