Gehry reveals new designs for Ground Zero tower

  • Comment
Frank Gehry has unveiled his latest designs for the 76-storey Beekman Tower near Ground Zero in Manhattan, New York City.

The building, just to the south of the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge, is currently under construction, with these latest designs unveiled on Friday (30 May).

At 267m-tall, Gehry’s skyscraper will tower above the nearby neo-Gothic Woolworth Building, designed by Cass Gilbert in 1913.

A grand unveiling of Gehry's design was cancelled in the wake of a crane collapse in Manhattan’s Upper East Side last week, killing two construction workers and injuring one other, as reported by the AJ’s sister publication Construction News.
