Its very weird to have a school in the basement of a 250 meter Skyscraper, might be nothing special for NY but for all other people it's weird.

Still not too much to report. The weird piliings are now in the dirt where they belong. But things seemed to have stalled. My instinct tells me that they have reached as far as they can go without a specific plan. And they don't yet have a concrete plan hence no renders.

I completely agree

I wouldn't say this is ugly. The design differs quite a lot from the ordinary New York -style, but it's something new.

Sbz2ifc "What's wrong with a school?" That's why we need Gehry.
Chad "And what else I can expect from Gehry?" What we expect is "how he pushing his works forward with the "very" expensive materials and pressmedia powers" in this project. Architecture will reacts differently in each place and condition.

A building that is out of place doesn't look good at all.
This building is UGLY.

I don't really like Gehry, but I can't say that this building is ugly when they haven't even released a final rendering or model.

Wow, what a crazy design. I think this will work well with NYC's skyline.

Interesting how people's tastes differ. Of the 100+ skyscrapers going up around the world, this one is in my top 5. The comment "just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should", I agree with 100%, but apply that to buildings like Taipei 101, 80% of what Dubai is building, and the Gherkin in London.

The Beekman is unconventional, but it is of very high quality, good proportion, free of silly embellishments, and sophisticated. I wouldn't want this building built in 98% of the world's cities, but New York can pull this one off. This building certainly demands that it should't overwhelm it's surroundings.

Perhaps, you should ship Gehry back to Toronto. His hometown would love more Gehry buildings other than the AGO.

I can't really figure out where this one is?
And could someone post a quick rendering (or just an image with an arrow or something) showing it's impact in the skyline?

Thanx

It's going to be 76 stories and 867 feet tall. It will be readily seen on the skyline since it's north of the dense cluster downtown. It will be just south of the Municipal Building which is pictured below.

After a few more views of this building's renders... I've concluded that maybe more buildings in NYC in the future will take on odd designs such as this...

Maybe, that is.

Cheers for the answer LLoyd!

I'm looking forward to see this one.
I think ESB should be kinda left alone where it is, but they should definitely enhance NY's skyline by working their way up for lower Manhattan. This building is certainly going to help doing that!
