Above, the rising beams on West Street adjacent to the World Financial Center that will form the new home of Goldman Sachs. (Starchitecture brought to you by Henry Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed and Partners, which—conspiracy alert!—doesn't mention the project on its site.) The photo comes to us from photoblogger Will Femia, who opines, "It really does close up the airspace down there. Maybe that goes without saying but it's striking to see it happening." More photos at A Test of Will, and in this Wired New York thread, which also has good renderings here. Squint hard enough and you can almost see the money being minted already.
