About this project

New York by Gehry, the 76-story mixed-use tower designed by Frank O. Gehry at 8 Spruce Street just south of Pace University near the Manhattan entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge, was a significant new element of the Lower Manhattan skyline when it was topped out in 2010.

The top 70 stories are clad in stainless steel. The south façade, facing towards the Financial District, is flat but the other three façades are rippled. The bottom six floors of the 876-foot-high tower are clad in orange brick and house a 600-seat public school on the lower five floors and office space for the New York Downtown Hospital on the sixth floor.

Lerch Bates provided vertical transportation consulting services for Forest City Ratner Companies (FCRC) and Frank O. Gehry Architects for the installation of 15 Elevators.
