See Pier 57 mid-transformation into Bourdain Market's future home

Renovation on the onetime ocean liner pier is set to wrap next year

It won’t open for another year, but the renovation of Pier 57 in Chelsea is inching towards completion, and the building now bears a large sign denoting its future home as Super Pier, new construction site photos by Field Condition have revealed.

Developed by YoungWoo & Associates along with RXR Realty, the building will be home to Google and the hotly-anticipated Bourdain Market, the latter of which won’t open until 2019.

Aside from that, the Handel Architects-led renovation will also bring a 80,000 square foot, publicly accessible rooftop park.

So far Google has signed on for 250,000 square feet of space at the Pier, and Bourdain Market is expected to take up 100,000 on the ground floor and mezzanine levels. Bourdain Market’s presence at the Pier was the subject of a lot of speculation last year when Curbed’s sister site Eater discovered that Anthony Bourdain and his team hadn’t officially signed a lease at the building.

A recent profile of the celebrated chef in the New Yorker seems to have put those rumors to rest with Bourdain still anticipating an opening in 2019.
