CurbedWire: A Double Dose of Gehry-Ratner Hookups

New, 7 comments

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?A tipster sends along an e-mail with a photo of Frank Gehry's Beekman Tower, which?given certain circumstances?should probably be called Fra Geh's Bee Tow. The e-mail was titled "Gehry's skin," but our tipster is a mysterious one. Is this old curvature or a new piece of the puzzle, indicating that actual work is going on down at 8 Spruce Street? Like we said, mysterious. [CurbedWire Inbox]

ATLANTIC YARDS?Speaking of Forest City Ratner-developed projects that may or may not still involve Frank Gehry, a tipster with some inside info has this to say about recent developments with the arena + towers plan: "Turner Construction is out as the contractor. And it's long been assumed that Ratner will not work with Bovis. So who will be brought in as a relief pitcher? And what could this project really be if the person that was leading the charge for all this time is gone?" [CurbedWire Inbox]
