New, 3 comments

SEAPORT—The Historic District Council has awarded an inaugural design award to Historic Front Street at South Street Seaport. Designed by COOKFOX Architects, the project infilled a number of empty sites along the stretch. Restoration work on Historic Front Street occurred following devastation brought to the neighborhood by Hurricane Sandy, but the site's original restoration was completed in 2006. The Historic Districts Council Design Award is granted to projects which improve historic buildings or communities without being imitative. [CurbedWire inbox; previously]
