56 Leonard Street is an 821 feet (250 m) tall, 57-story skyscraper currently under construction on Leonard Street in, New York City, United States. The Pritzker Prize-winning Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron describes the building as “houses stacked in the sky.”

The building has 145 condominium residences priced between US$3.5 million and US$50 million. Residences will range in size from 1,418 to 6,400 square feet (131.7 to 594.6 m2) and will include 2 to 5 bedrooms all with private outdoor space.

As of May 2013, 70% of the building had sold. According to building developer Izak Senbahar, the building was 92% sold in seven months. In June 2013, a penthouse at 56 Leonard went into contract for US$47 million, making it the most expensive residential property ever sold below Midtown Manhattan.

The building was completed in 2016. Due to its cantilevered balconies it has been nicknamed as the Jenga building by the media.
