BREAKING!!! MUST CREDIT CURBED DOT COM!!! But seriously, stop everything in your life and check it: above, the first publicly seen rendering of the Frank Gehry-designed tower, backed by Bruce Ratner, that's slated for 200 Beekman Street in downtown Manhattan, discussed here this morning. Below, how the tower would fit into the existing downtown skyline. Just—holy fuck. There it is.
Curbed tipsters are very, very good to us. But we're not sure a tipster has ever been as good to us as this. Still, it must be noted that these renderings are from Fall 2004 and
could well have almost certainly have evolved since then.
BONUS: Lois Weiss points us to the Beekman project's page on the DOB website.
