    From the February issue:  In 1938, after flying around the world in a record three days, legendary tycoon Howard Hughes Jr. was greeted with a ticker tape parade in Lower Manhattan to mark the triumph. Three-quarters of a century later, David Weinreb — CEO of the eponymous Howard Hughes Corp. — is not getting the same adoring reception. The company has already won approval to revamp the famed South Street Seaport, but its development plans for some of the surrounding sites have generated intense community controversy. [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]
