I like his plans for Hudson Yards,aesthetically speaking.It seems kinda interesting the way he managed to combine different kind of materials,such as brick and glass.

Right on. Sorry for my ignorance, I meant across the East River.

The name of Ghery's plans escapes my mind, but it's at the Atlantic Yards, not Hudson Yards (that's where all the supertalls are about to pop up)

His designs are quite innovative, but some are before their time IMO, people aren't ready for his style of weird angled walls, roofs etc.

No, but in this case you should. I think the design is really nice.

According to the news, this tower is going again and will be rising, and obviously will get completed. We will see the final design soon, with any luck in a few days.

MIT is suing him for his "advanced" architectural style. Leaks, falling ice and structual deficiency abounds. I'm hoping Beekman's design isn't that kind of disaster.

BTW, Anyone know if they are just building the school or the tower itself?

Nice to see some movement on the site. Although it would be just as nice to see some renderings

update by solaris, SSP:

Some more updates. Tower finally broke street level earlier this week.

Currently pumping concrete using a massive truck

Construction is operating very efficiently, especially considering the small footprint and lack of free street space.

Concrete trucks lining up down the street.


and btw...the new design will be released within the next 2 weeks

Ok, so I am sure that it's well over 860' to the roof but don't recall what the exact number is and it has 76 floors now. The height and design are basically the same, but some detail was added, I guess. It still will have a major impact on the skyline. Picture it w/ the WTC and friends too!

I think thats the location.


Just on the "Beekman hotel".Built in 1928, the 26-story building is an Art Deco landmark.






They say this is the final design.

New tower near the "Beekman tower"?
