I have never seen the design rendering of the south side with an undulating facade. I would love for you to post it for me.

Looks like only the river facing side is flat, probably helps with glare to passing marine and air craft. Not to mention helps get the facade up in a hurry to have some wind break for the inside.

Actually the flat side faces Downtown.

The north facade is jaw dropping.

Thanks... I live 15 blocks from the project and have followed it from the first public announcement.
What I was asking Hed_Kandi for was anything rendered where the south side was not smooth. I have never seen such an image and wanted to know if this undulating south facade was just urban legend.

I just can't get over this tower! It's a classic in the making. I think New York will have a lot to show from this decade

CurbedWire: Beekman Update, Bowery Invades Vegas, Jane Hotel Does J. Crew
Friday, October 23, 2009, by Joey

FIDI—All hail Beekman Tower, rising king of, uh, the City Hall environs! The tipster who sent us the above cool pic writes, "Now just four stories away from being complete and nearly half of the building has been covered in stainless steel curtain wall. At a pace of one floor every two days, this building should be topped out within two weeks. Looks like the project is progressing on track." That's 77 stories of pure, unfiltered Frank Gehry. We love it. Others don't. [CurbedWire Inbox]

The final number of floors is supposed to be 76, the title of this thread has been wrong for awhile. I don't know where they are getting 77 however, unless there is an extra mechanical floor located at the top of the building?
