Proposed Pier 17 mall gets design overhaul

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.”

The revised renderings of the development were presented by Pasquarelli to Community Board 1 last week, and the developer is seeking numerous zoning and land use exemptions. The new design will not affect the land use or zoning and the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the building’s exterior in May.  [Tribeca Trib]Christopher Cameron
