Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) released plans for a new glass tower in the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City.

ArchDaily reports that the 25-story Soho Tower will have 115 apartments and some neat luxuries for its tenants, including a fitness center, swimming pool, and automated parking. Retail space will be at the street level. 

The tower is being built on a vacant property on the western edge of the neighborhood. Most of the lot was acquired by the developers for $130 million in 2014, and the remaining part was purchased last week for $9 million, Dezeen noted.

"The fragmented building massing, detail, and materiality reinforce the human scale of this project within the scale of the city," the architects stated. 

SLCE Architects will also be working on the project with the Renzo Piano team. A completion date has not been determined.
