NEW YORK | 5 Beekman St. | 209m | 687ft | 47 fl | U/C

As part of an important restoration and hotel conversion project at 5 Beekman St., a lot immediately behind
the ornate Temple Court Building is slated for a 47 story condo tower.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Overhaul of 5 Beekman's Temple Court Could Begin Soon



Quote:
Friday, March 15, 2013

A tipster alerted us that interior and structural demolition permits for 5 Beekman Street have finally been filed with the Department of Buildings, meaning that the storied brick-and-terra cotta beauty is one step closer to its future as a hotel-slash-condo conversion. Also known as Temple Court and the Beekman Palace, the building is a landmark, so some elements will be preserved (including, thankfully, the incredible Victorian atrium with the glass ceiling and iron railings pictured above) in the creation of 285 guestrooms and 85 residences?some in a 40+-story tower on Nassau Street near the existing 10-story structure?described on the developer's teaser site. The website also promises that the hotel will be up and running by late next year.

Though the building is being developed by a joint venture called GB Lodging, which counts as its victories darlings like the Ace and Nomad hotels, a permit filing also reveals, for the first time, the names of the architects on the project (or at least this stage of it): Gerner, Kronick + Valcarcel.

The Temple Court Building at 5 Beekman St.

Quote:
Many landlords of older office buildings, such as the landmark former AIG building at 70 Pine St., are simply reconfiguring space into new rental units and into extended-stay apartments with retail and restaurant space on the ground floor. That said, some developers are tearing down buildings to replace them with residential towers, as in the case of 112-120 Fulton St.

Meanwhile, a swath of new hotels is entering the area. The landmark Temple Court at 5 Beekman St. will turn into a 285-room boutique hotel that will also have 85 residences and incorporate a new 40-plus-story tower at 115 Nassau St. Construction has started on a new Aloft hotel at 49 Ann St., as well as on a Residence Inn by Marriott at 170 Broadway and a Four Points by Sheraton at 6 Platt St.
Renders and other details as they emerge...

This will be a relatively thin building?

The place is amazing. I hope that the building constructed on this site is the same level. In this case not worry about height since it is a good design. And a tall building would block the view of the Woolworth Building.

The lot is somewhat large and rectangular but a slim tower could still be in the works depending on how much FAR they have to work with. The air rights from 5 Beekman alone are significant and zoning there is fairly generous.

That is a beautyful old building. I hope the design of the tower fits very well with this one.

Now U/C

Construction Update: 5 Beekman Street



Quote:
The conversion and expansion at 5 Beekman Street is making major headway; foundation work has begun, and cranes are present on-site. The new portion of the development will stand 47 floors and 595 feet, making it semi-prominent amongst the towers of Lower Manhattan; GFI Development is building the project, while Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel is designing. The elevated shots were taken from the rooftop of The Lara.



5 Beekman Street was a hive of activity this week, and it seems the tower portion is almost ready to rise above ground. Permits for the addition were denied late last year — and the site has a limited stop-work order issued January 23rd – but besides administrative formalities, everything is lined up for imminent verticality. Whether the stop-work order still holds is also mysterious, and as of yesterday, workers were clearly buzzing about the site. A ‘Bay Crane’ was even hovering several inches above the street.

[...]

Still no rederings for the tower addition as of yet...

Very quietly lower Manhattan is getting another 700 footer.

5 Beekman Update
http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/05/cons...-beekman.html#

Quote:
Construction is making rapid headway at 5 Beekman, and the project’s residential component is now rising above Nassau Street. The site’s developer is GFI, and the architect of record is Gerner, Kronick + Valcarcel.
....
Despite construction’s progression above street level, on-site renderings are nowhere to be found, though zoning diagrams filed with the DOB give inklings regarding the tower’s form. The slender, 621′ skyscraper will apparently have rooftop ornamentation, complementing its historic counterpart, which was completed in 1883. Parapets could push 5 Beekman’s pinnacle to the 700′ mark, and the structure will leave a definite mark on the local skyline, though the 870-foot 8 Spruce Street will continue to dominate the vicinity.
....
Completion is likely by 2016, with the hotel component set for a 2015 opening date.

Like half the new projects in NY, tall and supertall alike, we won't know what it looks like until it's built.

Looks great! Adds density and height to that small gap in the skyline!

I'm looking forward to seeing the crown on this, it's a fantastic idea of complimenting the neighboring building, will be interest to see!

Who's the architect behind this if anyone knows?

This sure looks like it's going to break the 200m mark.

Roof height is at 621ft. Since we don't know the size of the spires, it's just guessing.

Almost as high as the old building now - the ceiling heights must be insane because I think that's only 5 floors at this point.
