The credit crunch arrived a little too late to derail megadeveloper Forest City Ratner's 76-story luxury rental tower between City Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge, designed by a little Canadian-born starchitect we like to call Frank Fucking Gehry. Actually, we've never called him that and we would like to take a minute to personally apologize to Mr. Gehry for our crass behavior. Anyway, the 903-unit Beekman Tower at 8 Spruce Street sure has grown since the last time we checked in, and while it's still way too early in the game to catch a glimpse of all that curvy heavy metal that will adorn its facade, we're starting to see some serious ripple action. Yep, now that's what we call some Grade-A Frank Fucking Gehry ripslip.
