New York by Gehry at 8 Spruce Street also known as Beekman Tower is one of the tallest residential buildings in Western Hemisphere. Located in Lower Manhattan, New York, this 265m (870ft) tall residential tower is designed by famous architect Frank Gehry. Impressive facade, breathtaking views are not the only incredible things about this tower.
"For his first residential commission in New York City, master architect Frank Gehry has reinterpreted the design language of the classic Manhattan high-rise with undulating waves of stainless steel that reflect the changing light, transforming the appearance of the building throughout the day. Gehry's distinctive aesthetic is carried across the interior residential and amenity spaces with custom furnishings and installations.
Gehry's innovative incorporation of bay windows creates the tower's dynamic silhouette as well as
an exceptional variety of panoramic views from the residences. By shifting the bay windows from floor
to floor and tailoring their configuration for each residence, Gehry has given residents the opportunity to, as he puts it, "step into space."Gehry's innovative tower design has resulted in over 200 unique floor plans that bring the drama of the dynamic exterior wall movement into residents' private spaces. All interior finishes and fixtures have been selected by Gehry, including the entry door hardware and cabinetry crafted in his signature honey-colored vertical grain Douglas Fir.
The 76th floor Penthouses at New York by Gehry - the highest residences within the tallest residential building in North America - are among the only individual homes designed by Frank Gehry, aside from his personal residence. These rare spaces offer a once in a lifetime experience above the New York skyline in the most acclaimed building of recent times. Each of the three Penthouse residences occupies its own wing with every detail designed to cater to the most privileged lifestyle by the master himself, Frank Gehry.
Views from every direction and floor, at all times of the day and throughout the year, are limitless. Intimate perspectives of the Woolworth Building to the west are set against a breathtaking panorama of the Hudson River. All five East River bridges and several iconic midtown skyscrapers - including the Empire State and Chrysler buildings - unfold along the eastern and northern exposures. Views toward the northern horizon include Central Park and the George Washington Bridge. To the south and east, Manhattan is seen against the backdrop of the New York Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean."
