Looks like they've resumed work on the next floor. Hopefully we'll see in the few week this one definetively rising again.

That's what I see too, but people elsewhere claim that's not true. What we see is just stationary equipment. From the looks of it they have at least worked on the transfer floor.

Well the gimped south side of the tower doesn’t look too bad here, from far away. The south side looks to be taking on a character of its own, on the unique cladding alone. Also, they probably have not started on the next floor yet, it's going to take time for the builder to renegotiate the construction contracts with the unions. I expect it to get done, however.

We'll know for sure if and when the crane is raised.

I like this tower better and better watching the cladding go up there.


But it's still sad that it's blocking the Woolworth from main perspectives.

what happens with this kind of arquitecture...is that today is modern, tomorrow is old fashioned. That´s why i love classics...

True, but it's more like a building evolution than a change in style. There are real advantages to building modern over classic.

just consider this as well - right behind it there is going to be another tower. but this time it will not be at least 200 meters away - it will be right next to it - wall to wall. 99 church street.

From RoldanTTLB on SSP, new rebar being delivered to the top.

Construction Watch: Gehry's Beekman Gets Morning Wood

After 38 of its planned 76 floors had risen, work abruptly halted at the top of the Frank Gehry-designed Beekman Tower as its developer Bruce Ratner squabbled with labor unions over construction costs. That was nearly two months ago, but a Curbed tipster down in the upper reaches of the Financial District notes some current activity on the luxury rental skyscraper: "They were delivering rebar this morning and there were definitely people visible on top. In the crane lifting photo, it was putting wood on the roof, not taking it off." We've reached out to building reps to find out if the 76-story plan is still in place, or if Ratner is following through on his threat to cap Gehry's rippling steel at 40 floors. Until we hear, enjoy the updated look at the big Beek.

Looks like we're moving up again. And the cladding looks great.

I can't wait fo Beekman Tower to start rising as fast as it was earlier this year. We were looking at 1-2 floors per week. This nonsense with cutting the building short needs to stop. Everyone needs to get their shit together with the money problems and in the end complete one of Downtown's greatest buildings.
