The Scoop:

Final renderings and plans of the site have yet to be realized. Frank Gehry and Bruce Ratner have been very secretive throughout the whole project. The height is yet to be final and this is the number listed on the permits. Some believe the tower may rise 1000+ feet. [July 31, 2007.]

Pretty Expensive

Frank Gehry’s current design for the Beekman St. tower and K-8 school is spectacular but may never see the light of day because of developer Bruce Ratner’s financing problems, a source tells UnderCover.

Ratner has never released any pictures of the building model because he may want the celebrity architect to shave some costs and fancy features off the tower, our source says, adding that the developer does not yet have the loan to build. The tipster doesn’t think the project is in danger of falling apart, but the school opening may get delayed.

“It’s drop-dead gorgeous,” says our source, who has seen the model and is sympathetic to community concerns about the building’s height. The wavy tower “looks like the ocean’s above you.”
