ESPN to debut glimmering NYC studios next spring



Pier 17 was lit in red Monday night in ESPN's honor.


By Steve Cuozzo
October 9, 2017


Quote:
Cable sports giant ESPN will open its first New York City studio next spring at the new South Street Seaport’s Pier 17 — the latest advance for Howard Hughes Corporation’s $1.7 billion East River waterfront redevelopment.

The just-signed, multiyear lease is for 19,000 square feet on the new pier’s third floor, two levels below the roof. The facility is to span the structure’s eastern end, offering views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines. The lease is with ESPN’s studio partner NEP Group.

Howard Hughes Chief Executive David R. Weinreb told The Post, “This is completely down the fairway of what we intended for the property. We’ve always talked about studios coming live from the Seaport.”

ESPN executive VP for content Connor Schell described it in a statement as a “state of-the-art content factory that will allow us to produced differentiated studio content for both television and digital.” It hasn’t yet been disclosed which ESPN shows will be broadcast from the pier.

Although Disney-owned ESPN has offices in Manhattan, it has previously broadcast mainly from studios in Bristol, Conn.

The new Seaport facility will consist of three distinct studios — two for TV and one for radio. They will be enclosed, but Hughes Executive Vice President Saul Scherl said ESPN would also be able to “activate spaces throughout the Seaport, including on the roof.”

The studio complex is expected to open next March or April. It will be the pier’s first tenant to open its doors, part of a piece-by-piece rollout of elements including restaurants by Jean-Georges Vongerichten and David Chang on the first floor and mezzanine and the multiuse roof. All are expected to open next summer.

Passersby might have wondered why the entire nearly-finished pier, which has been dark until now, suddenly glowed bright red Monday night. It was “in honor of ESPN and to showcase the building’s light band,” Scherl said, although the display was expected to be for one night only.

Meanwhile, nuts-and-bolts work has started on relocating the landmarked but decayed Tin Building, which stands between the FDR Drive and Pier 17.

It took a while to nail down all the government approvals, but now that the permits are in place, Hughes has begun demolishing the old structure. Pilings will be removed starting this winter. The Tin Building is to be reconstructed about 33 feet east, to create “breathing room between it and the FDR trestle.

The Tin Building is to house a huge Vongerichten-run seafood marketplace. Although the rest of the Seaport will be open before the Tin project is finished by the last quarter of 2019 or the first quarter of 2020, Weinreb said it will be the occasion for a “grand, grand opening” of the entire complex.

The city leases Hughes the Seaport and other parts of the surrounding Seaport Historic District. When completed, the new Seaport will bring a much-needed entertainment, shopping and recreational complex to the East River waterfront — which lags in public attractions compared with the Hudson Side’s Brookfield Place, Battery Park City and Pier A Harbor House.

After the previous Seaport operated by the Rouse Company and General Growth Properties ran aground, Howard Hughes took it over in 2010.

Pier 17 also includes about 150,000 square feet of “rentable” office space — a figure that includes the ESPN studio.

Hughes has tapped CBRE powerhouse Mary Ann Tighe to market the space.

Tighe said, “In one of the city’s most historic districts, full of real cobblestone character, there is now a small amount of 21st century office space on offer. There’s nothing else like it in Manhattan, so I’m not surprised that ESPN decided to make it their New York studio center.”

City moves forward with plans to demolish Seaport building

Quote:
The city is moving forward with plans to knock down the New Market Building at the South Street Seaport, once again calling the site’s future into question.

The rundown building — constructed in 1939 as part of the Fulton Fish Market — has sat vacant for many years. The city previously discussed demolishing it, back when the Howard Hughes Corporation planned a condominium and hotel tower on the site in 2015. At the time, representatives from the city’s Economic Development Corporation told Crain’s that the building was in danger of collapsing because the piles that supported the structure were so deteriorated. Shavone Williams, a spokesperson for the EDC, told The Real Deal on Thursday that the city has worked closely with Community Board 1 and elected officials on the demolition timeline.

“Our ultimate goal is to ensure that the Seaport remains a safe, vibrant destination for residents in this community,” she said in a statement.

The city has already taken apart substructure portions of the old market and expects it to be fully demolished by the fall. Anthony Notaro, chair of Community Board 1, said that the EDC hasn’t been open about its decision to move forward with the demolition and hasn’t included the group in its discussions.

Too bad a piece of local history cannot be salvaged, however the structure is in very rough shape and the area needs to continue growing/evolving.

Surprise surprise, you can thank NIMBYs for that. A developer was willing to refurbish that structure, and in exchange wanted to build a 35-40 residential tower, and NIMBYs said no.

Well, that's very unfortunate. I'm hopeful something nice will materialize on that site to compliment the new mall.

Sound like there's local NIMBY opposition though (which prevented a proposal of that kind in the proximity)?

Perhaps something on a similar scale to the current structure will rise to compliment the new mall … more retail and restaurants.
