Seaport Residences Indefinitely Halts Construction In Financial District



Quote:
YIMBY’s Turkey Week tour of stalled projects continues with Seaport Residences, a 60-story residential skyscraper formerly known as One Seaport at 161 Maiden Lane in the Financial District. Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Fortis Property Group LLC with Ray Builders serving as the contractor, work has been on hold for the 670-foot-tall tower, which as planned would bring 200,000 square feet of residential space to the South Street Seaport District. Groves & Co is the interior designer for the 80 units, which are being managed by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.

The floor-to-ceiling glass panels are partially installed across multiple sections of the edifice in varying stages of progress. The sliver of balconies that curve up the eastern façade have yet to receive their glass railings.

Seaport Residences has endured a number of legal and construction issues, most notably allegations that the structure is leaning three inches to the north. YIMBY also last reported that sections of the glass curtain wall have been removed since earlier in the year, though the reason is unclear.

Despite the project’s woes, we hope to see work wrap up on the waterfront property in the coming year. Though it doesn’t approach supertall status, the structure features an interesting design and its slender profile faces the East River accentuating its impression of height. As shown in the rendering, the entirety of the skyscraper will eventually be clad in glass, including the blank concrete wall of the northern elevation.

I feel that there should be a clause within city zoning laws that requires developers to sell their stakes in projects that sit untouched for more than a year.

It's less common in Manhattan, but one often finds derelict shells of buildings in Brooklyn that lost their financing and just molder on the street.
