The glass façade of Seaport Residences, formally addressed as One Seaport, aka 161 Maiden Lane, is continuing to rise up the slender reinforced concrete superstructure in the Financial District. Most of the blue glass envelope on the eastern elevation is complete, though not much progress has occurred on the other sides of the skyscraper. Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Fortis Property Group LLC, the 200,000-square-foot, 60-story residential building will contain 80 units, sales of which will be handled by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. Ray Builders is the current contractor for the South Street Seaport-adjacent project, while Groves & Co is serving as the interior designer.

Yet another desolate waterfront lot in Greenpoint is in for a major redevelopment, with applications now filed for 37 West Street, between Oak and Noble streets. SLCE is the architect of record for the project, which will rise 14 floors and 211 feet to its rooftop, indicating generously-sized ceilings for the residences within. There will be 92 units spread out over 87,434 square feet of space, as well as a 3,300 square-foot community facility component. At about 950 square feet apiece, and accounting for the high ceilings, condos would seem very likely. Lipa Friedman of M&H Realty LLC is listed as the developer.
