Gehry's Beekman Tower to Hit the Market in Early 2011



Is Frank Gehry's Beekman Tower the most eagerly anticipated NYC rental building of all time? It's certainly the flashiest, and with the rippling skyscraper now hogging the Lower Manhattan skyline (without the aid of medical science!), we're wondering when these 900 slices of starchitecture will hit the market. A Curbed tipster writes we're one winter away:

Forest City Ratner has selected Citi Habitats to lease, Nancy Packes as marketing consultant and co-op as the advertising agency for Beekman Tower. Kick off meeting on Monday and leasing to commence early spring 2011.

According to a Forest City Ratner rep, leasing will begin in the first quarter of 2011, but that's all the developer will confirm. Will the apartments be snapped up quickly? We haven't heard much about prices or amenities, but Ratner can always throw in Nets season tickets with every signed lease, though that might actually discourage most people.

Looks like about it's 30 feet higher than the 'highest occupied floor'.

The article only said they will be taking lease applications. Nothing mentioned about when they can move in.

Love that pic!

Saw a link under your post about the "Top of The Tower" restaurant on the 26th floor.....huh???

Why are developers labeling observation decks and restaurants 'Top' when they are less than halfway up the structure?
