One Seaport Plaza, a 35-story, 1,074,140 square foot class 'A' office tower, is a unique and major architectural achievement. It is a distinguished office building, contextual in its concept and design: its two distinctly different facades have been designed to suit each of its different environments at the South Street Seaport.

A landmarked New York City site rich with history...Jack Resnick & Sons, Inc. and Swanke, Hayden, Connell, Architects each committed to fulfilling its own innovative design that complements two distinct environments: these are a few of the elements that have distinguished One Seaport Plaza.

Each of its 35 floors enjoys harbor views. Every refinement, technological development and amenity that makes people and office environments more productive are important components of One Seaport Plaza.
