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.
Work is continuing on “The Alfred on Fleet,” a 12-story residential building at 112 Fleet Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Alternately addressed as 167 Willoughby Street, the project is designed by Bricolage Design Associates and developed by Boomerang Development Group and will yield 24,250 square feet and 23 condominium units.
YIMBY’s Turkey Week tour of stalled projects continues with 45 Park Place, a 667-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Tribeca. Designed by SOMA Architects with Ismael Leyva Architects as the executive and residential architect, the 43-story tower has been on hold since late 2019. Sharif el-Gamal of Soho Properties is developing the project, with Piero Lissoni serving as the interior designer. 45 Park Place is located between Church Street and West Broadway, just to the north of the border with the Financial District. Permasteelisa Group and Vidaris are the façade consultants.
Work is continuing on the loft conversion and two-story expansion of 168 Plymouth Street in the DUMBO, Brooklyn Historic District. Led by Alloy Development, the development will bring 46 units to a 100-year-old structure that was once the home of the Concrete Daylight Factory at 42 Jay Street. The adjacent 130-year-old Brick & Timber Building at 50 Jay Street is also part of the project and is undergoing renovations as well as a one-story expansion. The site is located at the southwestern corner of Plymouth and Jay Streets, a short walk from the East River and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Work has yet to commence at 53 Pearl Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, where BKSK Architects has designed a multi-story rooftop expansion for the landmarked 140-year-old Italianate-style building. Located between Plymouth Street and Water Street, almost directly to the east of the Manhattan Bridge, the structure was once a factory for the Masury Paint Company and was transformed into rental apartments several years ago.
