1 Seaport: 161 Maiden Lane

Developed by the Fortis Property Group, 1 Seaport offers a pampering, luxurious and contemporary living inside a beautiful and cozy cocoon with with many pros and bonus features. This new construction is a 51-story glass tower adjacent to the historic Seaport District and is offering the remaining studios and 1-to-3 bedroom homes listed at $1.45MM.

This reflective-glass-clad tower offers breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline from its singular terraces and oversized, expansive windows. The interiors are by S. Russell Groves and exhibit generous floor plans, elevated ceilings, high-end fittings and fixtures and a waterfront lifestyle. The tower enjoys an illuminated top and two levels of amenities that offer 24-hour concierge services, a gym, relaxation lounge, a horizon pool, a misted waterfall passageway, sun terrace, bike room, an attended private porte cochere, elevator access and package room among many other services that the tower has to offer.


This 60-story, reflective-glass-clad apartment tower at 161 Maiden Lane near the South Street Seaport was developed in 2016 by the Fortis Property Group, which is headed by Jonathan J. Landau, and designed by Goldstein, Hill & West. It is known as 1 Seaport and has 80 condominium apartments.

S. Russell Groves is the interior designer.

According to a July 15, 2016 article at by Ondel Hylton the slim tower on “a 5,000-square-foot site…is slated to give way to a 150,000-square-foot tower positioned to become downtown’s first residential skyscraper directly fronting the East River.”

The skyscraper is bounded by South Street, Front Street, Maiden Lane and Fletcher Street and is on landfill dating back to the turn of the eighteenth century,” the article noted, and “was occupied by nearly a dozen small structures servicing the district’s then-robust shipping industries.”

It should not be confused with One Seaport Plaza, the very handsome, polished gray granite office tower immediately to the north that was developed by Jack Resnick & Sons as the incarnation of the office of “The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit.”

Last year, the Resnick organization sued Fortis over the name of its planned tower maintaining that it was acting “in bad faith and with the willful intent to confuse customers and profit.” The parties reached a settlement in December, 2015, with Fortis agreeing to rename its project after sales ended, according to an April 22, 2016 article in The New York Times by C. J. Hughes. The article said that Mr. Landau “did not yet know what the new name would be, though he said ‘Seaport Residences’ was under consideration.”
