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, Statue of Liberty and the city skyline. It is currently being revitalized by The Howard Hughes Corporation and will encompass seven buildings on several city blocks totaling more than 400,000 square feet of cutting-edge culinary, fashion, entertainment and cultural experiences, set to open in 2018.
Highlights include the new Pier 17, poised to become an iconic entertainment destination with a 1.5-acre rooftop that will serve as a year-round community amenity, including a restaurant, outdoor bars and a venue for concerts and special events. Waterfront restaurants inside the building from culinary powerhouses such as Andrew Carmellini, David Chang of the Momofuku Group, Helene Henderson of Malibu Farm, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten are the first to be announced in what will become a dynamic range of dining options in the district.
The Seaport District will also be home to the only U.S. location of Carla Sozzani’s pioneering experiential concept store 10 Corso Como, a 50,000-square-foot food market by Jean-Georges in the restored Tin Building, joining ESPN’s live broadcast studios as well the first Manhattan location of premier cinema operator iPic Theaters which are both currently open. 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.
