Construction at One Seaport, aka 161 Maiden Lane, has been noticeably paused for the past several months. The 60-story reinforced concrete structure topped-out back in early September, and it was unclear until recently why further progress had halted. However, new reports have revealed the 670-foot-tall building is actually leaning three inches to the north, leading to a series of legal disputes between Fortis Property Group, LLC, the developer, and Pizzarotti LLC, the current contractor. The project is being designed by Hill West Architects while Groves & Co is serving as the interior designer. Douglas Elliman is handling sales of the units.

Already several floors above street level in the heart of Long Island City, Court Square City View Tower, aka 23-15 44th Drive, is rising steadily towards its 778-foot tall pinnacle above Queens. The building will have 67 floors of residential living, and rise higher than the stepped crown of the Citibank building, aka One Court Square, which will make it the tallest building in all of Queens. CSCVT is currently the 22nd-tallest tower rising in the Five Boroughs overall, and is set to contain nearly one million square feet of space, with 802 units. The project is being designed by Hill West Architects while the developer is United Construction & Development Group.
Permits have been filed for a six-story commercial building at 1333 Broadway in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The site is a block and a half away from the Gates Avenue subway station, serviced by the J, M and Z trains. Jeremey Markowitz is listed as responsible for the development.
Construction is wrapping up on 60 Fulton Street, with the leasing gallery opening mid-October. Hill West Architects are responsible for the design, and the the 23-story tower has been dubbed “Exhibit,” in recognition of the curated photographic art exhibition on permanent display throughout the lobby, hallways, and amenity areas.
Construction is now six floors above street level on the 57-story, 80-unit residential tower under development at 161 Maiden Lane, located on the corner of South Street in the Financial District. Progress on the structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the 670-foot-tall tower, dubbed 1 Seaport, will encompass 192,473 square feet.
