8 Spruce Street

previously known as 'New York by Gehry' and 'Beekman Tower'


A notable addition to the downtown skyline with its undulating curtain wall, 8 Spruce Street, previously known as the Beekman Tower and New York by Gehry, is a 76-story skyscraper rises to 867 feet in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City. 8 Spruce Street is one of the tallest residential towers in the world, and it was the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere at the time of opening in February 2011. It contains a public elementary school owned by the Department of Education. Above that and grade-level retail, the tower contains over 900 apartments. The skyscraper's structural frame is made of reinforced concrete, and form-wise it falls within the architectural style of Deconstructivism along with Aqua, a skyscraper in Chicago begun after but completed before 8 Spruce.
