Exterior work is nearing completion on the Tin Building, a three-story commercial 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 facility will open with a seafood-themed market by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the main tenant of the low rise building. The 53,000-square-foot structure is located to the east of South Street and the elevated FDR Drive.
Renderings from Steven Harris Architects reveal a ground-up façade and window replacement project at 19 East 74th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The property’s location in the Upper East Side Historic District will require the project team to obtain a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC).
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will again review renderings and proposals from Roman & Williams Buildings and Interiors to install new signage and illuminated canopies at the historic Tin Building in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport Historic District.
