60-Story Condo Tower, 33-Story Hotel Coming to Seaport

Fortis Property Group’s sky-high South Street Seaport tower is moving forward after years of planning. The developer will soon begin work on the gleaming new 60-story condominium tower in the Financial District, on a site just south of the Brooklyn Bridge. The 670 foot helix-shaped glass tower will be known as One Seaport, and will contain just 80 ultra-luxury units along the East River near the South Street Seaport.

Featuring a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units, apartments in the building will have terraces, and no less than two exposures.

Low-floor one-bedrooms will start at just over $1 million and will reach up to $20 million, for the building's collection of penthouses.

Formerly known as 151 Maiden Lane, the Goldstein, Hill and West-designed tower will stand a whopping 60 stories tall, tall for the Seaport, but it's among a new class of sky-grazing residential towers along the East River.

The project counts as its companion Extell Development’s One Manhattan Square, now rising just north of the Manhattan Bridge.

The developer bought the two-parcel site at 151 Maiden Lane for $64 million in the summer of 2013, and the project has since gone through several different designs.

Originally, the tower was planned to be 51 stories tall and contain 95 condo units.

According to zoning, the block-long property has no height restrictions and can accommodate a building with up to 138,500-square-feet of residential development.

One Seaport's 80 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments will be designed by AD100 Architects, who’s other NYC projects include 1212 Fifth Avenue.

As is expected with pricey new development, the building won't be short on amenities.

Its 27th floor will be a dedicated Water Club. Residents will also have access to an attended private motor court and a 24-hour concierge.

One Seaport will adjoin a 33-story Marriott Hotel designed by renowned architect Peter Poon. Richard Lou is developing the hotel site, and Pizzarotti-IBC is building the project, which will span 110,207 square feet and rise 345 feet to the roof.

The future 271-room hotel will take the address 151 Maiden Lane and is expected to be completed in 2017.
