The revamped South Street Seaport district will soon be a year-round hub — at least this coming winter.

Rockwell Group got approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission earlier this week to build a pop-up “winter village” on top of Howard Hughes Corporation’s Pier 17 development, according to Architect’s Newspaper. The project includes an ice rink, a warming hut, restaurants and cafes.

HHC has been signing leases with major chefs and ESPN over the past several months and the $731 million redevelopment is due to open next year.

The developer’s plans for the pier’s 1.5-acre rooftop has generated controversy with neighbors in the past after news of a 4,000-seat venue for concerts came out. [Architect’s Newspaper] —Erin Hudson
