This new construction stands adjacent to The Beekman, a newly renovated historic hotel with commendable service. The tower enjoys arched arcades, ornate railings, and a very large, sky lit atrium. This red terra-cotta building was imagined by Gerner, Kronick and Valcarel and frames exquisite 360 degree views of the Manhattan skyline on its modern canvases.
Inside the residences, the vision of Thomas Juul-Hansen exhibits generous and expansive floor plans, huge windows and soaring ceiling heights. The interior features rooms and spaces that promise a luxurious, contemporary and convenient living to its residences.
A carefully -curated amenity package has been prepared for the residents, offering a private dining room, doorman and concierge services, a media room, expansive rooftop terrace, elevator excess and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Amongst all these benefits, the residents can also enjoy priority reservations for the hotels Temple Court and Keith Mc Nally's Augustine.
CITY REALTY ARTICLE
The Beekman Residences are 68 condominiums in a 51-story tower at 115 Nassau Street adjacent to Temple Court, the 10-story, former 1883 office building at 5 Beekman Street with tall pyramid corners just a few feet east of Park Row at City Hall Park.
The red terra-cotta building on Beekman Street is being converted to a 287-room hotel with a very large, skylit atrium with very decorative and ornate railings and arched arcades that is very reminiscent of one of the major scenes in “Bladerunner,” the famous movie that was partially shot in the famous Bradley Building in downtown Los Angeles.
The new, adjacent tower is “a dynamic reinterpretation of the cast-iron elevation of The Beekman Atrium; exposed and engraved concrete columns create a muscular elevation that celebrates the structure of the tower,” according to Randy Gerner of Gerner, Kronick + Valcarcel the architect for the project. “Above all,” he continued on the project’s website, “the tower’s dual crowns are a tribute to the restored Temple Court turrets.”
The thin tower appears to be white in a rendering and its pyramid towers appear to be very thin, almost transparent structures.
Gerner, Kronick + Valcarel is the architect for the project that is being developed by GFI Development Company, whose other projects in New York include the Ace and NoMad hotels, and GB Lodging, which was founded in 2011 by Allen Gross, founder and president of GFI Capital Resources Group, an affiliate of GFI Development, and Bruce Blum.
Thomas Juul-Hansen is the interior designer for the residential tower in which apartments start at 172 feet up and Martin Brudnizki is the interior designer for the Beekman Hotel.
