Beekman isn't grey, it's blue.

Looking at those Brooklyn Bridge shots, that's the only thing I really don't like about this tower: it completely blocks Woolworth, and it just stands out from everything else since there isn't anything as tall around it. I love this tower, and Gehry's a genius, but this tower doesn't feel right in Lower Manhattan, or at least in that spot. Just my two cents.

Awesome tower.. I think this one won't be overshadowed by the new WTC.

They should build another one next door (or across the street)
so lower Manhattan could have it's "twins" back.

The whole wtc complex will be just to the left of it when its complete and it will look perfect. The woolworth being blocked is unfortunate though.

Aww thanks. Summer is not a season I like to walk around the city in, especially this past month with all the 90+ degrees. UGH. :

I'm much more of a Fall/Winter/Spring person haha. So expect come Fall, TONS and TONS of shots and updates. As for August... well sporadic.

Beekman Tower Construction Enters Final Year


"Since it reached its peak in November 2009, the 76-story skyscraper at 8 Spruce Street -- better known as Beekman Tower -- has been a busy work zone. And now developer Forest City Ratner is on the final floors of its iconic fašade installation, a process that will continue for about another three months. Another visible sign of progress is the removal of the north hoist, which is now at floor 28, but will be fully removed by mid-August. The west hoistĺs removal is slated for October. The tower, designed by architect Frank Gehry, stands out on the downtown skyline both for being the tallest south of the Empire State Building, and for its rippling silver fašade."

The cladding is great, but I don''t like the flat roof.
