    UPDATED, 2:08 p.m., March 26: The Howard Hughes Corporation has entered contract for land just south of its planned 50-story tower at South Street Seaport’s Pier 17. The 8,128-square-foot parcel at 80 South Street has already received the go-ahead from the City Planning Commission to be transformed into a 300,000-square-foot mixed-use tower.

    Queens-based Cord Meyer Development has opted to sell the proposal and site itself to Howard Hughes. Morali Architects was behind the design of the tower, which would hold a residential component, a hotel and a community space. [more]

    Neighbors of the South Street Seaport voiced opposition at a Community Board 1 meeting Tuesday over the Howard Hughes Corporation’s 50-story condominium-and-hotel tower project set to rise next to Pier 17. A task force, formed as a compromise among residents and local leaders, is currently in talks with Howard Hughes Corporation and city officials over the project.

    “I think CB1 is clearly on board, as in to say our Seaport group, (that) we do not want the tower,” Community Board member Paul Hovitz, who is not on the task force, told Curbed. “That tower would be a stake in the heart of the Seaport. And I’m trusting that that is not going to be bargained off for some fugazy affordable housing.” [more]

    Howard Hughes Corporation is hoping that the inclusion of subsidized housing will help soften the city and residents’ resistance to its planned 50-story hotel and apartment tower at the South Street Seaport. But affordable housing on its own would likely do little do sway them, locals said. The community board and local advocacy groups object to the planned tower’s size. [more]

    The Howard Hughes Corporation is targeting a food market to occupy a nearly 40,000-square-foot space at their South Street Seaport redevelopment project.

    The developer is in talks with celebrity chefs to curate the offerings, which will focus on specialty foods, in the vein of Mario Batali’s Italian marketplace Eataly, in the Flatiron District. Residents have slammed the Seaport plans to replace the abandoned Fulton Fish Market warehouses with a 50-story condo-hotel tower, arguing it will not fit in with the area’s traditionally low-rise buildings. The city has yet to approve the hotel, which is slated to hold 130,000 square feet of retail. [more]

    South Street Seaport’s Pier 17 mall will close today to make room for a long-planned renovation of the pier. The multi-million-dollar overhaul project – being developed by Howard Hughes Corp. and set to kick off construction in October — will raze the current 28-year-old structure and build a glass structure filled with high-end stores and restaurants in its place. “There’s no place for the mom-and-pop store in the new mall,” a shop owner who declined to be named told DNAinfo. “But I don’t know if there’s room anywhere in city for that anymore.” [more]

    The future of the proposed South Street Seaport revitalization project is uncertain, the Wall Street Journal reported. The culprit: Hurricane Sandy, whose landfall in Lower Manhattan not only damaged the South Street Seaport Museum, but also could have damaged Pier 17, where Howard Hughes Corp. is planning a redesigned mall.

    Now that the site is closed, and could be closed for two years with construction, retailers could get cold feet in signing leases and the site may have problems getting visitors, real estate experts told the Journal. “People have a short time span to remember,” Faith Hope Consolo, chairman of Douglas Elliman’s retail group, told the Journal.

  • A rendering of the mall at Pier 17

    Howard Hughes Corp. is revising its design for a proposed shopping mall on Pier 17, the Tribeca Trib reported. The new design would split the rectangular mall in two, allowing natural light and rain to shine through the building’s center.

    “So when it rains the rain will come down right through the middle of the building,” Gregg Pasquarelli, a partner in SHoP Architects, the building’s designers, said. “We think that would be pretty fantastic and really have this great engagement with the waterfront.” [more]
