South Street Seaport

New York, NY

The South Street Seaport is a landmark-designated district in lower Manhattan where the Financial District adjoins the East River.  It features the largest concentration of early 19th-century mercantile buildings in the city that have been adapted together with renovated sailing ships, into a restaurant, shopping and nightlife destination.

MHA has worked with the NYC Economic Development Corporation on multiple assignments at the Seaport.

One cornerstone project is development of the overall retail leasing plan for the historic mercantile buildings.  This included the field survey and preparation of scaled drawings and gross / rentable areas of the existing buildings.

Evaluated existing retail spaces within the historic mercantile buildings and reconfigured to better accommodate future tenant needs, and meet operational and code requirements.

MHA also assessed and developed a plan for the restoration of existing historic streetscape amenities throughout the Seaport – including lighting, landscaping and paving.
