CityRealty.com offers new renderings via Urban Muse that reveal architect Richard Rogers’ 25-story mixed-use Financial District residential development, One Beekman at 1 Beekman Street. The 95,000-square-foot building, known as “Pearl on the Park,” the first New York City residential building for Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, will have a glassy facade and utilize a glazing system at its base that lends a greater transparency to the building’s lobby and street-level retail establishments. Included will be three commercial units of about 4,500 square feet each and one retail unit of approximately 3,200 square feet.

At this Beekman Street residence, two small apartments had been combined into one large one by a previous owner. Architecture and design firm Triarch reworked the floor plan to better connect the apartment’s series of separate rooms. The end result combines candy-coated pops of pink, red and purple, eye-popping art and contemporary finishes to make the home feel playful and creative, as well as livable.

The Fraunces Tavern Museum at 54 Pearl Street in FiDi has a long history of use, changing hands and purpose countless times since it was constructed back in the 18th century. What started as a simple rental home was later turned into a dance studio, eventually finding itself as a popular tavern-slash-boarding-home-slash-community center throughout and after the Revolutionary War. The building even had a stint as the first offices of the Departments of Foreign Affairs, War and Treasury. But it wasn’t until 1904 that The Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York, Inc. took over and decided to restore and preserve the historic building as a museum and restaurant. Our friends over at Find Everything Historic recently sat down with the Fraunces Tavern Museum’s executive director Jessica Baldwin Phillips to chat about what it’s like to maintain a storied building in a constantly changing city.
