Its private residences, designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen, start at one hundred and seventy-two feet in the sky.

The penthouse will offer 360 degree panoramas through walls of expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, corner bedrooms and heightened craftsmanship and materials from Thomas Juul-Hansen that ensure. There will be sixteen-foot-tall ceilings and a centerpiece fireplace. .
Residents will have exclusive use of a discreet private entrance and lobby, access to a state-of-the art fitness center, a private 11th floor with its own Private Dining Room with chef’s table and media room. There will also be a rooftop garden terrace framed by The Beekman’s iconic turrets, a manicured lawn, an outdoor chef’s table, lounge seating, and trellis-covered cabanas with views of the downtown skyline.
The Beekman will have two distinct entrances. An intimate private entrance off tree-lined Nassau Street will lead to a quilted corridor ushering owners into the elegant cocoon of the tower lobby. Exclusively reserved and staffed for residents and their guests, the jewel box space is designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen.
