After falling slightly behind schedule, the South Street Seaport’s Pier 17 is slated to open in the summer of 2018.

The 300,000-square-foot mall, rebuilt by Howard Hughes, the company undertaking the $1.7 billion redevelopment of the Seaport, was initially set to open in 2017. Saul Scherl, executive vice president for the tri-state area at Howard Hughes, told the New York Post that the 2017 opening date was delayed by City Planning approvals for the west facade.

Though the reconstruction of the Tin Building is now being held up, Scherl said it won’t impact the opening of Pier 17.

“One is not dependent on the other,” he said. “People will enter Pier 17 From The Plaza on the south side of it — not through the Tin Building.”

Star chefs Jean-Georges Vongerichten and David Chang plan to open restaurants in the mall.

Howard Hughes controls portions of seven buildings in the district and is redeveloping the area through a long-term lease with the city. The company initially planned to build a 52-story condo and hotel along the water, but plans for that project were ultimately scrapped. [NYP] — Kathryn Brenzel
