Fortis Property Group elevates waterfront living with sophisticated luxury condominium rising 60-stories over the historic New York Harbor
Fortis Property Group exhibits its considerable placemaking talents with the launch of 1 Seaport. Located in the heart of Lower Manhattan’s Seaport District, the elegant all-glass residential tower rises 60-stories above the waterfront offering unobstructed river and city skyline views from nearly every residence. 1 Seaport is poised to become the premiere residential destination and is the first condominium project in what is considered the most historic neighborhood in NYC, and one on the cusp of being transformed into a cultural and culinary mecca.
“1 Seaport contributes significantly to the resurgence of this historic district amidst expanding options for retail and dining, making it one of the most desirable places to live in New York,” said Jonathan Landau, CEO, Fortis Property Group, LLC. “Seeing the project to fruition is a defining moment for our firm and marks the residential renaissance of this neighborhood.”
Designed by renowned architect Goldstein, Hill and West with interiors by Groves & Co., the glistening tower offers 80 light-filled residences ranging from one- to four-bedroom homes and topped with two duplex penthouses. Additionally, to afford incredible views from nearly every residence, each home is designed with a corner master bedroom and almost all include expansive harbor side terraces, which offer cinematic views of the East River and immaculate city skyline.
With attention paid to every detail, the expansive residences feature hand-stained oak flooring, custom millwork and tailored floor-to-ceiling, triple-paned glass walls. Modernkitchens offer custom walnut cabinetry with upper-door Calacatta Gold inlays, concealed pulls, an illuminated Calacatta Gold marble backsplash and Gaggenau appliances. Additionally, each home is equipped with an LG washer and dryer and radiant heated floors in all perimeter bathrooms.
1 Seaport also boasts three floors of amenity space offering residents a multitude of unparalleled services, including a state-of-the-art fitness center with separate yoga and training rooms, 360 degree view water spa, replete with a “floating” glass edged infinity pool, a digitally activated rain shower, a relaxation lounge and glass enclosed steam and sauna. Custom pendant lights, complemented by up-lit bollards, cast a welcoming glow on the stone and brass detailed porte cochère, where a dedicated 24-hour valet exclusively services the private cobblestone driveway. Additional amenities include a 24-hour doorman, children’s playroom, sky terrace, lobby lounge and bicycle storage.
“1 Seaport’s waterfront location is simply unrivaled and offers a new perspective on city living,” said Fredrik Eklund of the Eklund Gomes Team. “This is a thriving neighborhood where residents can enjoy access to the many dining, cultural and shopping destinations in addition to utilizing the river as a mode of convenient transportation.”
1 Seaport is rising as part of the $1.5 billion transformation of the Seaport District, a portfolio of public and private development projects with iconic public open spaces, curated retail and destination dining. The new Seaport will include a reimagined Pier 17 and Fulton Market—a premier fashion and dining marketplace with a seafood brasserie and flagship restaurant by Jean-Georges Vongerichten in addition to an iPic Movie Theater, which will be the most luxurious cinematic complex in Manhattan. Public transportation is also easily accessible, with many subway lines stopping at the nearby Fulton Station, and an expanded new ferry network, which focuses on the East River, that will launch in 2017. By 2018 there will be five new routes for the East River Ferry network.
1 Seaport is just steps away from the East River Esplanade, which offers more than two miles of waterfront parks, bicycle paths, riverside cafes, and the dynamic Pier 15 with an observation deck and sky lawn, in addition to the Seaport Museum, East River Promenade and Imagination Playground, which was designed by lauded architect David Rockwell with custom toy installation.
Prices will range from approximately $1.2 million to nearly $20 million. The sales gallery, located at 180 Maiden Lane, is now open. The Eklund Gomes Team of Douglas Elliman is the exclusive sales and marketing agent for the property. For more information, please visit http://1seaport.com/.
