It looks promising

Seaport Developer Has Eyes on Site for a 1,018-ft. Building

http://www.tribecatrib.com/content/s...18-ft-building
Quote:
Howard Hughes Corp., the developer that is proposing a controversial 50-story building north of Pier 17, says it is also considering putting up a second, even taller tower about three blocks away.

The hotel and residential tower, which can be more than 1,000 feet high, would be built at 80 South Street. Hughes Corp. says that project is in addition to its proposed 600-foot residential tower
that opponents insist is out of character with the surrounding Seaport Historic District.

In a statement issued on March 26, Hughes Corp. executive Chris Curry confirmed the developer’s interest in the project, saying it is “reaffirming our belief in the future of the area by expanding our investment.”

A project at 80 South Street had been in the works by another developer, Cord Meyer, which has opted to sell the site and plans to the Hughes Corp. The Department of City Planning has ap*proved an air rights transfer for a soaring tower at the site, close to Imagination Playground, Pier 15, and the historic ships at Pier 16 as well as the mall that Hughes Corp. is building on Pier 17.

The most recent design, by Morali Architects, is for a 1,018-foot structure.

Last month, the Seaport Working Group, made up of Lower Man*hattan civic leaders, elected and city officials and Hughes Corp. representatives, began a series of discussions about the developer’s Seaport plans. Only after the group has come to an agreement can the Hughes Corp. finalize its development proposal for review by the city.

Although Hughes Corp. maintains that it is interested in going forward with both buildings, some believe that the developer views 80 South Street as an alternative to their initial project (to be built on the site of the New Market Building), in case it got rejected.

In an email to the Trib, Borough President Gale Brewer, a co-chair of the working group, described the possibility of Hughes developing 80 South Street as “certainly interesting.”

Robert LaValva, the president of the Seaport’s New Amsterdam Market and a leading opponent of the Hughes Corp.’s plans, commended the developer’s proposal for 80 South Street, saying in a statement that “it also provides a great opportunity” for the city to rethink the Hughes Corp.’s proposed 50-foot tower.

Hughes Corp. has said that tower is necessary in order to fund the restoration of the landmark Tin Building, build a marina and extend the East River esplanade through the Seaport.

Guaranteed Howard Hughes is ditching Morali for SHoP. Shifting residential units from Howard Hughes' controversial Seaport tower would enable them to lower the height and win approval there while leveraging the height envelope of 80 South St. for more residential units.

So in theory 80SS would end up taller than the adjacent 50 story building would shrink?

I'm hoping whatever we get here has a couple setbacks, so it steps back from the water a bit as it rises. A supertall monolith right at the water's edge would be awkward (same way I prefer the 57th St. towers set back a block or two back from Central Park). If SHoP is indeed the architect, I bet they'll do something that responds to the traditional wedding cake profile of downtown's classic towers.

A Proposed Megatower on the Pier Would Wreck the South Street Seaport
http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer...t-seaport.html

Quote:
Hughes is buying up the block of South Street between John and Fletcher, which comes with preapproved plans for a 1,000-foot tower at 80 South Street. Here, barely a block from Pier 17, even a supertall skyscraper would find itself at home in the bristling Financial District, leaving the seaport unmolested. Even though Hughes needs no approvals for 80 South Street, that site may open the door to a different deal.

sounds like they're trying to go taller. Hope so, something tall and skinny needs to rise here to balance out Chateau Shvo on the other side of the island.

this was a proposal by architectonics, which I don't think was posted here before.
http://www.opera-studio.com/PDF/80SS.pdf

it was 892' tall.

That's a great tower. I hope that ShOP will come up with something better;

This will be the perfect location for a 300+ meter building.

Just found out about this. Wow (!) This would be great for the shore skyline of southern Manhattan ! Is this really going to get built ? ...Cause I also noticed that the first post of this thread is quite old.

2008 screwed up a lot of development projects, but some are still alive. This is one of them.

RIP these proposals
