Bling is mostly used by pimps (or want-a-be pimps) to describe any sort of shiny object (mostly metals, such as gold). In American culture (and most others) these objects are meant to represent money and class. In short, he's saying that Beekman Place is a very classy and expensive building.

Your mostly right about that one thing though. bling is a term coined by the rapper B.G. and is mostly used by black people not pimps. And I pointed that out already

I am really impessed by the cladding. It makes this building stand out in the crowd.

I think this building turned out much better than the renders, especially when bathed in sunlight! The odd twisting detail was a bit worrying at first, but what a fantastic addition to the skyline.
