Description

The Beacon Tower rises at 85 Adams Street, at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge. CetraRuddy Architects collaborated with Fisher Marantz Stone to design a gracefully setbacked pinnacle that soars high above DUMBO’s stalwart lofts. The top floors open upon dramatic panoramas of Downtown Manhattan, framed between the sinuous spans of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges that stretch on either side of the building.
 

The building’s marketing mantra of “Zen-like calm” is reinforced with design consultancy by Benjamin Huntington, a Feng Shui expert, a private garden with a teahouse, ten-and-a-half-foot ceilings, and specially-designed windows that cut the decibel level of outdoor noise by more than half. Additional amenities include a 24-hour concierge, fitness center, landscaped roof terraces, and indoor parking.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The Manhattan Bridge was erected in 1909 almost a quarter century after the Brooklyn Bridge and doesn't get any respect as the joke goes even though it is much more graceful and lissome.

This building is right next to the bridge and to ensure that it is noticed it is crowned with a distinctive, angled "beacon" designed by Fisher Marantz Stone that has rows of fluorescent lights beneath angled louvers." Read Carter's Full Review
