Pace building at 15 Beekman is on its way

I was recently able to get some more recent renderings for the new Pace building at 15 Beekman — it is under construction now, just across from the Beekman Hotel on Nassau. It will reach 25 stories and is scheduled for completion in late 2023.

The building is part of a master plan for Pace that includes renovations of One Pace Plaza. Once 15 Beekman is finished, they will move programs over to the new building so they can vacate parts of One Pace Plaza.

15 Beekman will have a residence hall with suite-style housing, a new dining facility, library, classrooms, and common spaces. The building will also be the new home of the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems.

  1. How much of the Beekman (apartments) view is blocked?

    • Nassau Street is extremely narrow. I tried to find the exact width online but I wasn’t lucky. Nassau street has parking on one side of the street and room for a garbage truck to go by. Plus sidewalks that are about five feet wide. Fifty feet? So that would mean that the eastern views of the Beekman would be blocked.
      This Pace building is an example of a bulky ugly glass building on too small of a plot.

      The garbage from the Pace dormitory which is a few buildings down on Beekman street and also the Gehry building, which is also on Beekman street makes the street look like a garbage strike. This building will only add to that!

  2. It’s amazing how the drawings make that building seem like it’s being built on wide streets. Nassau and Bekman are some of the narrowest in the city. Nassau Street in particular.
