    Wow! Is that's what's likely to be built? I was expecting a crappy box.

    Looking at those interior renderings. Windows from floor-to-ceiling AND wall-to-wall; it seems to me like living in a fishbowl
    - not 'homey' at all.

    I know there is such a thing as window blinds: but it is still too much glass IMHO

    Default 151 Maiden Lane

    Fortis's Skinny, Twisty Seaport Tower O' Balconies, Revealed!

    May 27, 2014, by Hana R. Alberts



    Zoning rules and neighborhood opposition may thwart (or at least hinder) Howard Hughes' plans for a proposed tower atop the New Market Building and a 100-story goliath on South Street, but the area is going to see at least one new skyscraper rise. Fortis Property Group's luxury condo building for 151 Maiden Lane between the river and Front Street is barreling ahead, with permits filed last week and new renderings posted on the developer's official website that afford some more views at the skinny skyscraper. First spotted by New York YIMBY, the renderings show the through-block site divided into two parts: first, on the eastern half, a balcony-laden 52-story tower with 74 apartments; on the western part, a shorter but equally terraced hotel. Hotel guests and condo owners will share the same "high-end amenities." One of those has got to be the 26th-floor rooftop pool mentioned in the permits, right?







    According to the developer, the square footage of the project totals 281,000—161,000 for the condo tower and 120,000 for the hotel—which it is allowed to build as-of-right without any variances. Fortis acquired the site in the fall of 2013, and unveiled a first glimpse of the curves to come in January. In case it wasn't obvious, these condos are going to be pretty fancy; many will "include uninterrupted river views with the top floors having virtually 360-degree views." Construction is expected to begin this year.

    And thus FiDi's residential boom continues merrily long.

    Is that structure with the cubes supposed to be a seaparate tower or part of this one?

    Fortis's Twisty South Street Seaport Tower Looks Like a Helix

    by Zoe Rosenberg


    All renderings via New York YIMBY.

    The one tower that is moving ahead without a fight in South Street Seaport has a new look. YIMBY spotted renderings for Fortis Property Group's 151 Maiden Lane, a 51-story residential tower that will rise on the East River just south of South Street Seaport. Its signature helix-reminiscent balconies are thanks to project architect Goldstein, Hill & West. The building will hold 74 apartments spread over 140,000 square feet, with a 26th floor pool separating the building's multi-unit floors from its full-floor homes, which will occupy floors 27 through 51.



    A first glimpse of the building's signature curves came back in January. The new renderings conspicuously leave out the development's adjoining Peter Poon hotel, which is supposed to stand 33 stories to the west of the residential tower. It seems its re-envisioning is still in the works. When complete, the hotel will have 271 hotel rooms.

    Both will help hide that atrocity in the background.
