Located in the South Street Seaport, the rooftop venue now boasts a three-in-one concept with “The Lawns,” “The Restaurant,” and “The Patrón Patio.”

Situated on cobblestoned Water Street in Lower Manhattan, this two-bedroom duplex condo, asking $1,575,000, sits behind the charming facade of what is said to be the borough’s third-oldest surviving building. Built around 1773, the listing tells us, the Captain Joseph Rose House at 273 Water Street is “the oldest dwelling and shop, and the third oldest building surviving in Manhattan.” The apartment within, however, offers every contemporary convenience, with the extra perk of a private roof deck with World Trade Center and city skyline views.

The Howard Hughes Corporation last week got the official go-ahead from the city to build a mixed-use tower on a parking lot in the South Street Seaport. Originally proposed as a 1,000-foot-tall tower, the plan for 250 Water Street has changed many times over the last few years due to feedback from community groups and local officials, with the final result being a 324-foot-tall tower with roughly 270 apartments. The $850 million project is expected to break ground this year following remediation of the site.

New York City has taken an important step toward protecting one of the country’s largest central business districts from the costly and destructive effects of climate change. The city’s Economic Development Corporation and the Mayor’s Office of Climate Resiliency recently released the Financial District and Seaport Climate Resilience Master Plan. At a projected cost of up to $7 billion, this environmental blueprint for the Lower Manhattan shoreline imagines a resilient waterfront that can withstand severe storms and rising sea levels.
