 The construction netting and scaffolding was removed from the Financial District’s 5 Beekman Street yesterday, just one week after the launch of a teaser site for the building’s highly anticipated 287-room hotel and condo conversion. 

Although the building’s 68 luxury apartments, known as The Beekman Residence, will not debut until 2015, so much activity at the building may indicate that a sales launch nigh, according to Curbed.

Allen Gross’ GB Lodging is converting the landmarked property, with an adjacent site on Nassau Street. Douglas Elliman’s Eklund-Gomes team, headed by “Million Dollar Listing” star Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes, are handling marketing at 5 Beekman. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
