Gehry’s first NY residential tower unveiled 

New York developer Forest City Ratner and architect Frank Gehry today unveiled a design for a new 76-storey residential tower that will redefine the skyline of Lower Manhattan. The Beekman, as the project is known, will be the tallest residential tower in the City and Gehry’s first residential project in New York.

The project features a 1.1 million sq ft structure sheathed in Gehry’s signature glass and crumpled stainless steel cladding atop a six-storey masonry podium that will accommodate a public school, new public open space, and an ambulatory care center for the adjacent New York Downtown Hospital.

In addition to 903 market rate rental apartments the project includes a four-storey, 100,000 sq ft public school, a 21,000 sq ft ambulatory care center that will be used as doctor’s offices, 13,000 sq ft of neighborhood-oriented ground floor retail space and 26,000 sq ft of below-grade parking for 175 cars.

The development will also feature two through-block public plazas designed by Field Operations in collaboration with Dutch planting designer Piet Oudolf.

The project, which is under construction, will be completed in 2010.
