A Soho-based bookstore will soon join the South Street Seaport, and it might even be bringing a speakeasy.

McNally Jackson Books inked a lease with the Howard Hughes Corporation to open a bookstore and café on Schermerhorn Row. The bookstore, which first arrived on Prince Street in 2004, is poised to open its new location in 2017.

The bookstore is one of the latest additions to Howard Hughes’ redevelopment of the waterfront. The Seaport is the firm’s first New York City project, which includes plans for a mixed-use tower near Pier 17. The tower has drawn some criticism from community members over its height and design.

Plans for the new bookstore, at roughly 7,000 square feet, include a 1,000-square-foot café-bar on the ground floor and possibly a hidden speakeasy, owner Sarah McNally told the New York Post.

Tungsten Property’s Jonathan Schley represented McNally on the lease. [NYP, fourth item]Kathryn Brenzel
