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.

A new rendering has been revealed for the highly-anticipated Long Island College Hospital redevelopment, dubbed River Park. The final tower for the project, 5 River Park, located at 347 Henry Street, is slated to be a fully residential building. The structure will rise 15 stories and offer up 91,000 square feet of space. The lot is part of the larger project being developed by Fortis Property Group, and will spread across the Cobble Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Construction in New York City can be a dangerous occupation, and unfortunately, Juan Chinchillo lost his life on September 21st, when he fell from 161 Maiden Lane, aka 1 Seaport. While the project has been on hold for two months while the Department of Buildings investigated, they have now partially lifted the stop-work orders imposed after the accident, and work appears to be resuming on the tower.
Construction is now six floors above street level on the 57-story, 80-unit residential tower under development at 161 Maiden Lane, located on the corner of South Street in the Financial District. Progress on the structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the 670-foot-tall tower, dubbed 1 Seaport, will encompass 192,473 square feet.
