In the lead-up to 2019, YIMBY will be checking in on each of the Five Borough’s 30 tallest towers currently under construction. Standing at the bottom of the list is One Seaport, aka 161 Maiden Lane, which is a notable presence on the Lower Manhattan skyline when seen from the Brooklyn Bridge, or any view facing west towards the Seaport District. The slender new 60-story and 670-foot-tall residential skyscraper recently topped-out, and curtain wall installation is making substantial headway. Spanning 200,000 square feet, the project is being designed by Hill West Architects, developed by Fortis Property Group, LLC and constructed by Pizzarotti LLC. The interiors are being designed by Groves & Co. Sales and marketing are being carried out by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
Fortis Property Group
Fortis Property Group has launched sales for 5 River Park, the first property to arrive on the heels of the billion-dollar River Park redevelopment plan in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. The new property offers 25 condominiums ranging in size from one to four bedrooms.
Permits have been filed for a 26-story mixed-use building at 30 Front Street, a parking lot for the Jehovah Witnesses Watchtower building in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The lot was the last significant piece of property that the organization had to sell, a process started in 2011 following a decision to move upstate to Warwick, New York. Fortis Property Group is behind the applications.
One of the best comforts of living in the Financial District is its proximity to New York’s Harbor and rivers. For the residential tower rising at One Seaport, unencumbered views are guaranteed for as long as the adjacent highway remains. Today’s update from Tectonic shows the building has a third of its height left until it reaches its 60-floor pinnacle.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use structure at 350 Hicks Street, at the far northern corner of Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. The site is ten blocks away from the Borough Hall Subway Station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4 5 trains. Bergen Street is eleven blocks away, serviced by the F and G trains. Fortis Property Group will be responsible for the development.
