161 Maiden Lane
Foundation work is underway on the 57-story, 80-unit residential tower under construction at 161 Maiden Lane, located on the corner of South Street, in the Financial District. The construction photos were taken by the project’s general contractor, Pizzarotti-IBC. Dubbed 1 Seaport, it will measure 192,473 square feet and stand 670 feet over the East River, according to the latest building permits. The residential units will be condominiums, ranging from one- to four-bedrooms, and should average 1,726 square feet apiece. Two duplex penthouses will crown the tower. Amenities include private residential storage, storage for 37 bikes, a lounge on the fourth floor, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and a lounge, pool, and sauna on the 27th floor. YIMBY has been revealing renderings of the evolving project since 2012, with the latest batch released in the spring. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect, while Groves & Co. is the interior designer. Fortis Property Group is the developer, and construction is expected to be complete in early 2018.
Back in September of 2015, new details were revealed of the residential tower planned at 161 Maiden Lane, in the Financial District, notably that the project would rise 60 stories, or 670 feet above street level, up from a previous 51 stories. Now, YIMBY can reveal new and up-close renderings of the glassy tower. Dubbed 1 Seaport, the project will have 80 condominium residences ranging from one- to four-bedroom configurations, averaging 1,726 square feet apiece. The 192,473-square-foot tower will be topped by two duplex penthouses. Amenities, located across three floors, will include a fitness center with yoga and training rooms, an infinity pool and spa featuring a “rain shower,” a sauna, and a “relaxation lounge.”
