Thanks for the tip...it is 3-D after a few red wines and going cross eyed I get a feel I am back in good old New York : ) hmmm this wasn't there back in 2007

From that angle, it looks as if they were twin towers, very close from each other.

WAN photographer risks life and limb to bring you these exclusive images from NYC...


WAN is delighted to bring you these exclusive update images of Frank Gehry’s 1.1million sq ft Beekman Tower. A multi-storey mixed-use facility, the wrinkled stainless steel façade is signature Gehry and towers above its neighbours at 76 storeys high. Our fearless photographer Wade Zimmerman almost managed to get himself banged up on this mission, receiving a stern warning from New York’s finest after trespassing into a restricted area of police headquarters to get the best angles. Luckily the smooth-talking maverick managed to skip out, enabling us to bring you these fantastic images of the shimmering Beekman Tower.

At 8 Spruce Street in Manhattan, Gehry’s design was brought to life by New York developer Forest City Ratner. It incorporates luxury living accommodation, a public elementary school owned by the Department of Education and an ambulatory care centre. The school itself seats 630 students and takes up approximately 100,000 sq ft over 5 floors, whilst public plazas on the east and west sides of the development provide a touch of outdoor escapism in the city that never sleeps.

It was only a matter of time until Gehry made his mark on Manhattan. His first residential project in New York, the master of controversial architecture will be joining the legions of architects and designers facing the wrath of outspoken New Yorkers who are not afraid to comment on the ever-changing skyline of their beloved city. Currently under attack are Pelli Clarke Pelli for their highly disputed 15 Penn Plaza project whilst the backlash against the Ground Zero mosque continues to gather momentum despite the fact that an architect has yet to be named. How Gehry’s Beekman Tower will be received is yet to be seen.

This skyscraper looks like it's always been there, I am really impressed how the architect puts this glowing, twisted and, last but not least, colossal building in such a compact structure as Manhattan, good job Mr. Gehry.
