Work has begun to relocate and renovate the South Street Seaport's landmarked Tin Building, the former home of the the Fulton Fish Market. The building, which was damaged in a 1995 fire and Hurricane Sandy in 2012, will be meticulously dismantled piece by piece before being moved roughly 30' east and reassembled. The SHoP Architects-designed transformation was originally introduced in 2016 and will feature a seafood market by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The relocation will help protect against flooding and moves it further away from FDR Drive. The The South Street Seaport is owned by the Howard Hughes Corporation. The project is expected to be completed and ready to open by 2020.
