See the plan to transform the South Street Seaport’s Pier 17 into a rooftop winter village





SEPTEMBER 18, 2018
BY DANA SCHULZ

It might still be steamy outside, but the colder months are upon us, and this year, NYC will have a brand new ice skating rink. CityRealty uncovered renderings that show how the Howard Hughes Corporation would like to transform the South Street Seaport’s Pier 17–the SHoP Architects-designed food/drink, retail, and entertainment complex–into a rooftop winter village. The proposal by David Rockwell Group calls for an ice rink just slightly smaller than that at Rockefeller Center, a skate shop, and a warming hut. The team is presenting the plan to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (Pier 17 is part of the South Street Seaport Historic District) this afternoon, so check back for updates on the vote.

As CityRealty explains, “making the Seaport District a year-round attraction is one of HHC’s paramount goals in their $731 million redevelopment plan. Historically, wintertime has posed a challenge in bringing visitors and shoppers to the waterfront.” But with the huge success of the ice rinks at Rockefeller Center and Bryant Park, the latter serving as the anchor of a much larger winter village, the plan is not without precedent.
