How would you like to live in a puzzle in the sky? How about right on top of Manhattan?

After a long delay, a rather puzzling 60-story condo building in New York’s Tribeca district could soon start becoming a reality. It’s made up of a pile of stacked residential units, a design that earned it the nickname “the Jenga Building” after the 1980s game of wooden blocks.

Conceived by Swiss architectural firm Herzog & De Meuron, the 56 Leonard Street project could see completion by spring 2016, according to the Tribeca Citizen.
