Beekman Place


Recommended Posts

In early October 2006, the one-acre parking lot on the west side of New York Downtown Hospital began its transformation into one of the tallest buildings in Lower Manhattan. Beekman Tower, whose address will be 8 Spruce Street (between William and Nassau Streets), will rise 75 stories (850 feet) and reshape the downtown skyline by the time it is completed in early 2010. Architect Frank Gehry is designing the glass- and titanium-skinned tower. It will be primarily residential, though it also will dedicate 100,000 square feet to a public school, hospital offices, and an underground parking lot. There will be retail around its base and public plazas on its east and west sides, which pedestrians can use for access between Beekman and Spruce Streets.
