No. 33 Park Row, 33 Park Row

Between Park Row & Theater Ally

This handsome, 25-story, glass tower at One Beekman on Park Row across from City Hall Park was erected in 2019 by Urban Muse and has 31 condominium apartments. 

It was designed by Rogers, Stirk Harbour + Partners, the London-based architectural firm led by Richard Rogers, who won the Pritzker Prize in 2007 and was the architect of the Lloyd's of London tower and, with Renzo Piano, the Centre Pompidou in Paris., both famed for their exposed structural elements. 

This tower, however, does not bare its structural elements and is relatively modest as it is dwarfed by some nearby skyscrapers such as Frank O. Gehry's sinewy One Spruce Street just to the north, the 47-story Beekman Hotel & Residences tower designed by Gerner, Kronick + Valcarcel, Architects and capped with miniature toy pyramids just to the east and the 54-story project with many asymmetric setbacks at 23 Park Row designed by COOKFOX for L & M Development Partners and the owners of J & R Music Store just to the north of the great, 1899 tower 15 Park Row with its ornate twin turrets that was the world's tallest building until 1908 and was designed by R. H. Robertson. 

The building, which almost looks like it is the northern wing of the much taller structure at 23 Park Row, has retail space on its first two floors and office space on its third and fourth floors.  

The project is the first residential development for the architects, who have also designed the 80-story office tower at 3 World Trade Center that will open in 2019. 

Bottom Line

With its anthracite-hued aluminium screens with perforated copper screens, this handsome, mid-rise tower overlooks City Hall Park with many loggia and only 31 condominium apartments.


According to a May 10, 2018 article by Tim McKeough in The New York Times, the building's architects "devised a building that provides sightlines north to the park from every apartment by shifting the circulation core to the south, where the building is hemmed in by its neighbors." 

On its north side, "the front of the building opens up like a flower, with walls of windows framed by anthracite-hued aluminum and perforated copper screens," said Glauco Lolli-Ghetti, the principal of Urban Muse," the article continued, adding that "about half of the units have outdoor loggias or terraces facing the park, reached through sliding glass doors."  The loggias have low glass railings. 

Graham Stirk, the firm's senior partner in charge of the project, was quoted in the article as stating that "there's a richness to the surface design" and that the warm hue of the copper screens was intended to co-ordinate with the color of neighboring buildings such as the red brick and terra cotta of the Beekman hotel. 

The copper-screens on the north side end at about the height of the terra cotta building across the street while those on the side facing the park go up a few more stories but not all the way to the top which has a large roof deck.


The building's fifth floor has a gym, a yoga studio, an entertainment space and a common outdoor space.


Apartments have six-inch-wide white oak plant flooring, white oak kitchen cabinetry, Miele kitchen appliances and Montclair Danby marble in the master bathrooms.
