Nice shot. The lighting on those early morning photos are really lovely. When we reach this point of completion; I begin to wonder about the ‘interior architectural designs’ that are beginning to take shape. Those photos, are obviously harder - if not impossible - to find.

Is the bean on its way? LOL, taking longer to assemble this bean that build the friggin’ tower


#348

If it’s taking this long, do you think they’re not going to put it in. I would think it’d be in by now


#349

I work nearby. Every time I’ve asked about the bean, I’m told by one of the doormen that is it supposed to be installed in a few months. Promises, promises. I have no idea what’s going. And I don’t know anyone who does.


#350

Well I cannot find it now but Tribeca Citizen had a post months (now maybe even years ago haha) that included a comment from someone in the know about what it took to complete the bean including the shiny finish. Surprisingly complicated.


#351

Correct. But you are right that the article was many moons ago and the installation time promised that piece has long since passed.


#352

Today. I didn’t get close enough to see if anything started on the bean, unfortunately.


#353

no sign of the bean as yet


#354

I spoke to a couple of guys outside the building who said that a few days ago some workers with “fancy looking equipment” were taking measurements and made some of the marks on the ground.


#355

Looks very promising!


#356

Prep for the bean is visible in markings on the pavement.


#357

Wow I was beginning to think they weren’t actually going to do this

Someone showed me Airbnb listings in 56 Leonard the other day going for around $1,200 a night. I wonder if in buildings like this the owners have to get the doormen in on the deal to make sure they don’t get reported? I could see some owners in 56 Leonard not being happy that their building is an Airbnb.


#359

In looking at the markings on the pavement I realized this thing is going to be huge. It’s hard to imagine how big the volume will be.
