Historic Front Street

Historic Front Street is an award-winning restoration of 11 landmarked buildings and the design and construction of three new buildings. Comprising nearly an entire city block on Front Street between Beekman Street and Peck Slip in the South Street Seaport Historic District, the properties include 95 residential rental units and 15 street level retail stores. The restoration and revitalization of Historic Front Street respects the character, scale and history of the area while becoming an important part of a revitalized 24/7 downtown that has seen extraordinary growth over the last decade. Lower Manhattan is now one of New York’s most desirable residential neighborhoods with a vibrant mix of housing, shopping, parks and cultural attractions. The addition of the Fulton Street Transit Center and World Trade Center Transit Hub makes Historic Front Street one of the most accessible areas in the City.
