And what else I can expect from Gehry? other than soem folding napkins piece of crap. Maybe it's just me that have no interest or favor in his kind of design, lack of inspiration, what he's doing is eating out and modifying his own over used design. The only thing that pushing his works foward is the "very" expensive materials and pressmedia powers.

location map

it's 0840 on the map.

"Beekman Tower (8 Spruce Street)


In early October 2006, the one-acre parking lot on the west side of New York Downtown Hospital began its transformation into one of the tallest buildings in Lower Manhattan. Beekman Tower, whose address will be 8 Spruce Street (between William and Nassau Streets), will rise 75 stories (850 feet) and reshape the downtown skyline by the time it is completed in early 2010.

Architect Frank Gehry is designing the glass- and titanium-skinned tower. It will be primarily residential, though it also will dedicate 100,000 square feet to a public school, hospital offices, and an underground parking lot. There will be retail around its base and public plazas on its east and west sides, which pedestrians can use for access between Beekman and Spruce Streets.

Daily Activities
*The following information was last updated on May 8, 2007.

Work currently taking place at 8 Spruce Street includes

▫Excavation and foundation work
▫Pile driving concludes on May 4th, 2007.
▫Utility tie-ins begin in spring 2007."

This one is close (relatively) to the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, just behind Pace University.

Strange..

I like Gehry's designs, but It's a bit repetitive.. same shape, same materials... expensive materials btw!!

I dunno if this will fit with NY style..

BTW, a school in the bottom?

This tower is going to be great. It's going to rise soon and I hope we get a final rendering with detail.
