    My guess is that they (con ed) will be installing steam pipes into the foundation at the building site.

    Pile Driving Wraps Up at Beekman Tower


    Work on the 75-story tower began in fall 2006

    Pile driving will conclude on May 4th at Beekman Tower, one month earlier than expected. Since it began in February 2007, workers have installed more than 800 piles for the 75-story tower, located at 8 Spruce Street (near Pace University). The tower is being designed by Frank Gehry and will be primarily residential with office space for neighboring New York Downtown Hospital and a 630-seat K-through-8th-grade school. Foundation work continues at the site, with superstructure work beginning in late summer 2007. The tower is planned to open in early 2010.

    I'm excited to see this rise. We haven't had any changes to the east side of the Downtown Skyline, unless you count 2 Gold with it lit up hat box top.

    Is that the final rendering? I hope so. It looks superb.

    That rendering scares me a little bit. Too asymetrical and wavy for my taste. Fortunately, the building will look much better from that angle with the WTC rising behind it.

    Yes. Maybe other things will go up around it and we won't really see it.

    Found it over on SSC. Looks the same as the other render we've had for ages. Looks good on the skyline, something different!

    Stand at Lafayette / Houston and look south down Lafayette.

    Seems this is a clear vista to where this tower will rise and nothing should block the view (unless Pace Univ. builds on its current site).

    Just happen to have that view, Lofter.

    Looking south on Lafayette, between E Houston and Prince.



    Beekman tower will be seen to the right of the Municipal Building.

    Will always be one of my favorite NYC vistas, that one ^^^

    Like getting a look at Oz

    ^ A splendid view indeed, but with plenty of "filthy" buildings. Maybe New York should institute a mandatory facade-cleaning law like the one that scrubbed Paris clean; that would decimate londonlawyer's collection of POS for immediate demolition.
