seaportredevfail.jpgThe South Street Seaport redevelopment plan proposed by General Growth Properties and SHoP Architects has been panned by the community since day one, though favored by the Bloomberg administration. Curbed reports the Landmarks Preservation Commission "slapped the proposal around like an abusive drunk stepfather. The massing, scale and height of the new buildings (especially that 42-story condo/hotel on the waterfront) were deemed inappropriate for the Seaport Historic District, and the LPC was also against moving the century-old Tin Building to the end of Pier 17." There was no vote, so the application is still considered active, and the GGP declared they were "undeterred," and "remain committed to our plan to revitalize the seaport district, add necessary amenities and open space, and respect the unique historical character of this cherished neighborhood."
