The much-anticipated Frank Gehry-designed lower Manhattan skyscraper, New York by Gehry, aka 8 Spruce Street and Beekman Tower), is ready for prospective renters who can shell out upwards of $2,630 for a studio, $3,580 for a one-bedroom, and $5,495 for a two-bedroom. A Curbed reader posing as a potential tenant visited today and says, "[T]he place was devoid of gawkers, but I think weekends will be a mad-house. The rental office on the 37th floor has jaw-dropping views to the east, north and west."

The NY Times' architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff said of the building, "Only now, as the building nears completion, is it possible to appreciate what Mr. Gehry has accomplished: the finest skyscraper to rise in New York since Eero Saarinen’s CBS building went up 46 years ago."
