The demolition of the old mall at South Street Seaport's Pier 17 made way for an ambitious redevelopment, headed up by the Howard Hughes Corporation, that will supposedly include a new marina, luxury buildings and a fancy new shopping mall. Now, you can see what that space might look like: The rendering above depicts the renovated Tin Building (the white structure in the foreground); the refurbished Pier 17 to the right; and the futuristic, 50-story tower in the background, which received almost instant opposition from residents of the historic neighborhood.
