Beekman Tower

8 Spruce Street - Beekman Tower, is Manhattan's tallest residential building. Designed by Frank Gehry for client Forest City Ratner, the 1.1 million SF tower boasts a striking rippled facade, made possible by WSP USA's ground-breaking structural design.

Bullet 76-story concrete frame

In order to create the undulating rippled facade, the floor plates and slab edges of the building are unique to each level and innovative column, beam, and shear wall configurations are designed to accommodate the steel curtain walls. The design provides flexibility for a wide range of interior space layouts while also ensuring structural stability in high winds. At the foot of the building, a six-story podium contains a public school and ambulatory care center.
