Exterior work on the Tin Building, a three-story commercial building at 95 Marginal Street off Pier 17 in the South Street Seaport District, is nearing completion. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by Howard Hughes Corporation with Plaza Construction as site manager, the facility will be opened with a seafood themed market by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the main tenant of the low-rise building. The 53,000-square-foot building is east of South Street and elevated FDR Drive.
Since our last update at the beginning of March, some fine-tuning has been done, especially on the pillars under the roof parapet, which are now decorated with ornaments. The green construction fence still surrounds the property, but is to be dismantled soon.
It also appears that the mechanical devices and systems were installed on the roof, along with the rest of the industrial-style windows and the operable walls under the canopy that spans the entire main west facade.
Meanwhile, the Fulton Fish Market in the north is being demolished. Photos show the skeletal outline of the building and its steel-framed superstructure, while other outer and inner walls were torn down. The entire building is expected to be completely dismantled by the end of the year.
Roman & Williams Buildings and Interiors’ proposals to install new signage and lighted canopies on the Tin Building are still under review by the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC). The following renders show what the designers envisioned for the retail and hospitality company. Click here to learn more about it.
A formal completion date for the Tin Building has not been announced, although YIMBY predicts sometime in early 2022.
