••• Urban Land has a thorough recap of the changes—and proposed changes—to the South Street Seaport by the Howard Hughes Corp. If you aren’t quite sure what the fuss is about, you should definitely read it. Also of note, re: the riverside tower: “The company plans to present a revised proposal to the Seaport Working Group, then proceed with the environmental analysis and begin the seven-month ULURP process in the first quarter of 2015. With that timeline, the project could be ready to open, in stages, in 2017 or 2018.” And the iPic movie theater in the Fulton Market Building will have eight screens.
