Construction at One Seaport, aka 161 Maiden Lane, has been noticeably paused for the past several months. The 60-story reinforced concrete structure topped-out back in early September, and it was unclear until recently why further progress had halted. However, new reports have revealed the 670-foot-tall building is actually leaning three inches to the north, leading to a series of legal disputes between Fortis Property Group, LLC, the developer, and Pizzarotti LLC, the current contractor. The project is being designed by Hill West Architects while Groves & Co is serving as the interior designer. Douglas Elliman is handling sales of the units.
A new condominium development from Toll Brothers City Living has topped out at 77 Charlton Streett in West SoHo, Manhattan. While full-completion is still a year off, Toll Brothers has established a Midtown sales gallery for the property and has released a collection of new renderings.
Work on 111 Leroy Street in the West Village is making steady progress. The upcoming 10-story project, which is located between Hudson Street and Greenwich Street, is being designed by Workshop APD and developed by Property Markets Group. There will be nine full-floor condominiums, called The Residences, and five adjacent single-family townhomes, called The Houses. Douglas Elliman is in charge of marketing and sales of the 14 residential units.
Morris Adjmi Architects will appear yet again before the Landmarks Preservation Commission with proposals to construct a new mixed-use office development in the East Village. Located at 3 St. Mark’s Place, the property is positioned on the corner of 3rd Avenue and St. Mark’s Place. The draft proposals also include alterations to an existing structure at 4 St. Mark’s Place and the transfer of approximately 8,400 square feet of build rights to facilitate construction of the new office building.
Among New York City supertalls expected to rise as part of the current development boom, 80 South Street has been the only major project of prominence to retain near-complete secrecy when it comes to architectural visualizations. Today, YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for the plan tentatively in the works for the site, for developer China Oceanwide Holdings, which would result in the tallest building by roof height in all of Lower Manhattan, likely approaching 1,500 feet above street level.
