Whoa. In case the renderings above leave any doubt in your mind about the nature of this project, the redeveloped Pier 57 is to be called SuperPier. Scheduled to open in summer 2015, the 270,000-square-foot complex will encompass four levels of stores, food markets and restaurants, educational and cultural space, a rooftop park, a beach club and spa, recreation areas and more.

About the shopping part—boutiques will be housed in an "incubox marketplace," which appear to be stacks of 40- to 160-square-foot modular containers. So far, confirmed tenants of the floating structure that extends over the Hudson River at 15th Street include an Opening Ceremony outpost, a climbing gym from Brooklyn Boulders, and a spa and restaurant by hotel impresario André Balazs. Developers Young Woo & Associates are seeking more tenants to fill their nearly 12-acre edifice—know anyone?
