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.”

Howard Hughes representatives did not respond to DNAinfo’s requests for comment.

Mall tenants had asked Howard Hughes Corp. to move the demolition date from July to the fall, to allow them to cash in on the summer retail season. [DNAinfo]Hiten Samtani
