Excavation is progressing at 250 Water Street, the site of a 25-story mixed-use building in the South Street Seaport district of Lower Manhattan. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) and developed by The Howard Hughes Corporation, the 324-foot-tall structure will span 550,000 square feet and yield 399 total units with 100 affordable rental apartments, Class A offices, retail space, and community facility space. Suffolk Construction Company is the general contractor for the property, which is bound by Peck Slip to the northeast, Pearl Street to the northwest, Water Street to the southeast, and Beekman Street to the southwest.
South Street Seaport District
The Department of Buildings and Landmarks Preservation Commission have approved plans to convert a warehouse at 107 South Street into a mixed-use residential property. Located in Lower Manhattan’s historic Seaport District, the building was previously occupied by a fish trading house, supplying seafood daily to the Fulton Market before it was relocated in 2005.
Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s newest food hall is now open to the public in the Tin Building, a historic three-story building at 96 South Street in the Seaport District. Designed by Roman & Williams and developed by The Howard Hughes Corporation, the 53,000-square-foot structure was dismantled from its original location along the East River and rebuilt 32 feet away, directly adjacent to the SHoP-designed Pier 17. The $200 million project features six full-service restaurants, six fast-casual counters, four bars, a grocery store, and private dining space, all spread across two floors. The property is located off Fulton Street to the east of South Street and the FDR Drive.
Finishing touches are underway on the Tin Building, a three-story commercial market building at 95 Marginal Street on Pier 17 in the South Street Seaport District. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by Howard Hughes Corporation with Plaza Construction as construction manager, the 53,000-square-foot structure will house a new seafood-themed market by Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The steel-framed low-rise building is located to the east of South Street and the elevated FDR Drive, directly to the west of SHoP’s Pier 17 structure, which features multiple restaurants and bars and has hosted many events on its expansive outdoor rooftop since its completion several years ago.
The Howard Hughes Corporation has received necessary approvals to construct a new 26-story mixed use development at 250 Water Street in South Street Seaport, Manhattan. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), the tower will comprise a mix of market-rate and affordable rental apartments, an office component, retail space, and community facilities.
