THE SEAPORT OF TOMORROW
The Seaport District is New York’s original commercial hub, located on the East River in Lower Manhattan with unparalleled views of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and the city skyline. An essential part of the city for over 300 years, the re-envisioned Seaport District will continue to function as a community anchor and “Port of Discovery” for the rapidly growing population of Lower Manhattan. The Howard Hughes Corporation® is leveraging the Seaport District’s history as the birthplace of innovation as it transforms a district spanning several city blocks, creating approximately 450,000 square feet of dynamic culinary, fashion, entertainment and cultural experiences.
Highlights include the new Pier 17®, designed to become an iconic entertainment destination with a 1.5-acre rooftop that serves as a year-round community amenity, including a restaurant, outdoor bars and venue for concerts, cultural and special events. The building will soon include waterfront restaurants from culinary powerhouses such as Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Andrew Carmellini, David Chang of the Momofuku Group, and Helene Henderson of Malibu Farm. Pier 17 is also home to ESPN’s new live broadcast studios, which opened in April 2018.
The Seaport District features the only U.S. location of Carla Sozzani’s pioneering experiential concept store, 10 Corso Como, as well as the first iPic Theaters located in Manhattan, which is the premier cinema operator’s highest grossing location. The Seaport will also feature a 50,000-square-foot food hall by Jean-Georges in the restored Tin Building currently under construction. An essential part of New York for over 300 years, the re-envisioned Seaport District will continue to function as a much-needed community anchor and a “port of discovery” for the rapidly growing population of Lower Manhattan.
