^ Have to agree with you. It wouldn't even have to be a crown, but something in the same style as the facade, only as a setback-top. Like 1 or 2 stacked storeys or something.

The only thing that I see similar is the windows have a similar form, other than that, nothing at all

Isn't the Beekman completed by now? Would be glad if anyone could give evidence when it's finished.

I don't believe they've finished the exterior all the way. There are still parts at the top to be cladded from where the construction elevator was removed.

Leasing is well underway, but I don't believe the last of the apartment fit outs will be done till next year.

Great pictures desertpunk and when I see that second picture do I see the idea with the cladding. That facade is kind of floating.

From Aug 2nd. They've finished the last of the curtain wall. The elevator "scar" is healed.
