Preserving the Past and Building the Future.
The Howard Hughes Corporation’s vision to revitalize the South Street Seaport is crowned by Pier 17. The development plan balances the pier’s iconic waterfront location with its unique ability to provide a much-needed community and cultural anchor for Lower Manhattan’s rapidly growing and changing residential population and workforce as well as visitors. Pier 17 will feature a contemporary, sustainable design, conceptualized by SHoP Architects. With over 400,000 feet of retail space it will honor its historic roots as a bustling marketplace and influential port of trade centuries
Creating an Engaging Environment
The Howard Hughes Corporation is committed to celebrating the District’s historic buildings that give the neighborhood its irreplaceable culture, character and charm. The refurbished Tin Building, once home to one of the world’s largest fish markets and the future home of the Jean-Georges curated food market, will be painstakingly moved out of the floodplain and rebuilt piece by piece, restoring it to its 19th-century glory. The building, pushed back from the FDR Drive, will also include increased plaza space for both customers and local residents to enjoy.
