At 870 feet tall, it is the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere.
Opened in February of 2011, New York by Gehry (originally known as Beekman Tower) is a 76-story skyscraper designed by Canadian born architect Frank Gehry.
Gehry, who hails from Polish Jewish ancestry, was recently selected by a panel of architectural experts brought together by Vanity Fair as “the most important architect of our age.”
Located at 8 Spruce St. in Lower Manhattan the sparkling stainless steel skyscraper contains 903 luxury residential units. The first five floors of the building are home to an elementary school attended by 600 children.
The building is a breathtaking addition to the Manhattan skyline. Its exterior facade looks like it is being blown by the wind.
Although Frank Gehry created the outside, he was not responsible for the interior design. Nevertheless, it’s still worthwhile to have a look.
The interiors are sleek, simple and warm.
Ladies and Gentleman…New York by Frank Gehry.
