Foundation work is underway on the 25-story, 31-unit mixed-use building under development at 1 Beekman Street, located on the corner of Park Row in the Financial District. The work can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. In September, YIMBY revealed renderings of the project, which is set to encompass 95,285 square feet and rise 299 feet in height to its main roof. Adding the bulkhead brings the tower’s pinnacle to 335 feet. The first four floors will contain 14,583 square feet of commercial space, with retail on the ground floor and offices on the upper three. The residential units, which will be condominiums, are spread across the sixth through 22nd floors. Urban Muse is the developer and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners is the design architect. SLCE Architects is serving as the executive architect and completion is expected in early 2018.

  1. Too urbanistically important a site for this sort of half-baked, cliche-ridden, badly-programmed crap.

  2. Shame. I was hoping they would keep the lot empty so that the beauty and grandeur of 5 Beekman Street could been seen and appreciated from Park Row.

  3. Indeed the two exquisite red brick buildings that bracket Beekman as it opens onto Park Row are truly remarkable — both individually and most especially for the dialogue the two present, suggesting the possibility of the beginnings of a rich and architecturally-heightened ‘district’. This meretricious and confused object now gets plunked down like a belch intruding into a harmonious and lively conversation. Something wonderful could have been done here had there been players possessed of a good education to competently identify the ‘genius loci’ and respond with re-enforcing and heightening design, not with a banal, hermetic non-sequitur.

  4. Foundation work will not stop until the ground is smooth for, 25-story store structure to the top.
