One Beekman, designed by Pritzker prize-honoree Richard Rogers, offers every single unit a view of City Hall Park.

That’s because the core of Urban Muse’s 31-unit condo tower will be on the south side of the building — facing 25 Park Avenue — allowing the rest of the structure to open “up like a flower,” Glauco Lolli-Ghetti, principal of Urban Muse, told the New York Times. New renderings of building show in greater detail how the facade will be accented by copper screens and aluminum-framed windows.

“It’s not curtain wall,” said Graham Stirk, senior partner at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. “There’s a richness to the surface depth.”

Prices in the building start at roughly $2 million for a one-bedroom to $14 million for a four-bedroom penthouse. Compass is handling sales and marketing for the building.

The building, which sits on a site that was previously home to J&R Music and Computer World, is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2019. The project is Rogers’ first residential project in the U.S. Another one of the buildings he designed in New York recently, 3 World Trade Center, is nearing completion.  [NYT] — Kathryn Brenzel
