  1. That's 8 Spruce St, aka "New York by Gehry" and "Beekman Tower" developed by Bruce Ratner, the same fellow that used eminent domain to build the Barclay Arena for the Brooklyn Nets.

    If I remember correctly, they had to "de-undulate" one side of the building's facade to bring down the construction costs, and at one point mid-construction they were considering topping out at 38-stories when funds dried up. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-02-11/gehry-s-875-million-tower-ripples-over-lower-manhattan-james-s-russell.html
