South Street Seaport District
Renderings have been revealed for a six-story, 30,000-square-foot building that will house the South Street Seaport Museum. Located at John and South Streets, the new construction is part of a massive undertaking by the Howard Hughes Corporation and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in the South Street Seaport District that also includes 250 Water Street, the completed Pier 17 building, and the 75,000-square-foot New Market Building adjacent to the Tin Building, which is already in progress.
In an exclusive reveal, today, YIMBY has the scoop on the renderings for Howard Hughes‘ planned supertall at 250 Water Street on the edge of the Financial District in the South Street Seaport, designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. There has been much speculation about whether the full-block development could reach supertall status with the transfer of 700,000 square feet in air rights, which would make it the tallest structure in Lower Manhattan, after One and Three World Trade Center, with diagrams indicating a total height just shy of 1,052 feet.
A complete set of renderings have been revealed for the 75,000-square-foot New Market building in Lower Manhattan’s South Street Seaport. The construction is part of a massive undertaking by the Howard Hughes Corporation and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in the South Street Seaport district. The community facility space will sit adjacent to the Pier 17 building and the Tin Building, which is currently being rebuilt and will reopen in early 2021.
YIMBY has another set of illustrative renderings created by Siniaevart that showcase the three alternate conceptual building massings for 250 Water Street, a proposed skyscraper project from The Howard Hughes Corporation in the South Street Seaport District. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the full-block development has the potential to use 700,000 square feet of unused air rights to achieve supertall status, which would make it the tallest structure in Lower Manhattan outside of the World Trade Center complex.
