Fortis Property Group’s planned residential tower at 151 Maiden Lane in the South Street Seaport area is now set to rise 60 stories, up from the 51 that was reported last year.

The new information comes from Douglas Elliman’s Fredrik Eklund, who posted on his Instagram that he is involved in the project, dubbed One Seaport, Curbed reported.

Permit applications filed with the Department of Buildings last year called for 74 apartments, and it is unclear whether that number has changed, as no new filings have come through yet.

The architect is Goldstein Hill & West. Renderings released last year could possibly be outdated.

One Seaport will be adjoined to a 33-story, Peter Poon-designed hotel that has been identified in DOB filings. The block-long site has no height restrictions. [Curbed] — Tess Hofmann
