ESPN to open South Street Seaport studio

On Monday night, South Street Seaport’s Pier 17 mysteriously glowed in red. The explanation came a little later: sports network ESPN, whose color is red, inked a 19,000-square-foot office lease at the Howard Hughes Corp.’s development.

ESPN will operate three recording studios — two television and one radio — on the third floor, the New York Post reported. The Disney-owned network has Manhattan offices but its shows broadcast from a Hartford suburb.

Pier 17 includes 150,000 square feet of office space, marketed by CBRE. The building is set to open in mid-2018.

Texas-based Howard Hughes is also relocating the landmarked tin building across the street and converting it into a food hall. It took over the site, which it leases from the city, in 2010. [NYP] — Konrad Putzier
