CurbedWire: FiDi's Imaginary Skyline of the Future Rendered

New, 14 comments

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?On a recent afternoon we stumbled upon the Seaport-area storefront where General Growth Properties is displaying the plans, models and flashy renderings of its on-life-support South Street Seaport redevelopment proposal. We elbowed our way through the crowd (OK, we were the only ones in there except for a bored-looking lady who seemed pissed about having to unlock the front door) and made it to the back, where there is a snazzy wall-size rendering of a Downtown skyline that includes SHoP's 42-story Seaport hotel/condo, all the skyscrapers of the redeveloped World Trade Center and the full-size glory of Frank Gehry's Beekman Tower. Fans of parallel universes should check it out. [CurbedWire Staff]
