construction is almost complete for frank gehry‘s beekman tower in new york. the 76 storey residential tower located just south of city hall plaza and the brooklyn bridge, consists of a public elementary school, luxury apartments, a space for new york downtown hospital and an underground public carpark.

the building’s structural frame is that of reinforced concrete and is draped with a wrinkled stainless steel facade. the 1.1 million square foot tower, will become one of the city’s tallest buildings and is due to open later this year.
