The bit of shoreline hugging the East River between the Lower East Side and the Financial District will soon look very different, with a number of new towers on the rise. Construction on one of those, 1 Seaport, is now underway.
Developed by the Fortis Property Group, 1 Seaport is located in a rapidly developing part of Lower Manhattan that was previously overlooked. Once complete it will soar 700-feet high and feature 80 condos, and a host of amenities.
It'll still be a while before this 60-story South Street Seaport tower takes its place along the Lower Manhattan skyline, but sales for the building's 80 condos have officially launched. Ten of the units hit the market asking from $1.3 million.
