What’s Opening When at the Seaport District

The New York Post has a new timeline for when various components of the Seaport District mall, formerly known as the South Street Seaport, will open:

Spring, 2018: ESPN’s new studio at Pier 17 (pictured above and below); Dita Eyewear on Fulton Street.

Summer, 2018: Pier 17’s rooftop restaurant (the operator remains unannounced); By Chloe vegan fast-food at Pearl and John; and the Mr. C hotel, operated by Cipriani, at  the Peck Slip site formerly home to the Best Western.

Fall, 2018: Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s 10,000- square-foot restaurant at Pier 17; 10 Corso Como boutique in the Fulton Market building.

Winter 2018: David Chang’s new Momofuku restaurant; McNally Jackson bookstore/café on Schermerhorn Row (the historic buildings on the south side of Fulton).

Much later: Vongerichten’s “50,000-square-foot seafood market in the Tin Building, the vacant structure that stands between South Street and Pier 17. It’s to be dismantled and rebuilt about 33 feet east to create breathing room and public space between itself and the elevated FDR trestle.”

There’s still more to be announced. To wit: Joining the Vongerichten and Chang restaurants at Pier 17 will be a 11,000-square-foot one from Locanda Verde/Little Park team Andrew Carmellini, Josh Pickard, and Luke Ostrom. They’ll all be “part of a ‘pier village’ on the pier’s first floor and mezzanine [….] The ‘village’ is composed of six, two-story food-and-beverage ‘boxes’ situated to provide view corridors for visitors to see the Brooklyn Bridge and the East River.” (The Carmellini restaurant won’t open till next year at the earliest.)
