New York, Bloomberg Tower, 856 feet

All photos by me Carlos

These were taken a few months back....in early 2004




















May 2004:





this is how it looked in November 2004:






Here's my latest photo !! taken a few weeks ago!






below is the floor plan for Penthouse on floor 55




ONE BEACON COURT

E N V I A B L E A D D R E S S

One Beacon Court is New York’s most prestigious new Upper
East Side residential address. Finely sculpted from glass
and steel, the reflective surfaces produce a brilliant display
of luminous effects. An elliptical shaped light-filled courtyard,
inspired by the curves of the Pantheon, provides you with
an oasis of exclusivity and security. A private lobby entrance
from the court leads to your home high above the most
incredible city in the world. Prominently positioned, there
are panoramic views in every direction.

I D E A L L O C A T I O N

Beacon Court is located at the epicenter of Manhattan
where the sophistication of the Upper East Side meets the
rhythms of Midtown. Stroll to the city’s finest hotels, shops,
restaurants, art galleries, museums and through Central Park.
A wealth of choices will satisfy your every whim and desire.

U N F O R G E T T A B L E V I E W S

With floor-to-ceiling walls of glass, One Beacon Court
has been designed to allow residents to enjoy the most
unforgettable views. These well proportioned condominium
homes feature views that embrace Central Park, both rivers
and all of Manhattan.

B R I L L I A N T D E S I G N

Internationally renowned architect Cesar Pelli, has created
a modern masterpiece with Beacon Court. Recognized
for his subtle sculpted designs, Pelli’s stunning architecture
has been woven into the fabric of such diverse capital cities
as Washington D.C., London, Tokyo and Kuala Lumpur.



located on this part of the glass tower!!

they are pretty much done, the first pictures must have been from a little while ago. They still have inside work to do, but the building has been topped out for quite some time

I dont really like this much, the ledges on each floor make it look lumpy, would have been better as a sheer face I think.

I used to like Pelli's towers,however, this one is an exception.Apart from the base,the rest of the structure doesn't appeal me.

I read somewhere on at SSP that the 856 ft height is the height above sea level, and the height from the ground is actually 806 ft (246 m)
