Statement of Findings
Technical Memorandum dated December 8, 2015
Pier 57 is located within Hudson River Park at approximately West 15th Street. The pier, which is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places, was historically used for the Grace Lines cruises (through 1967). Between 1967 and 2003, it was used as a bus garage and maintenance facility by the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transportation Operating Authority, a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
On March 30, 2016, following a public review process conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Hudson River Park Act, the Hudson River Park Trust’s Board of Directors voted to approve a lease with Super P57 LLC and to amend the Hudson River Park Multi-Purpose General Project Plan dated July 16, 1998 to reflect new uses on Pier 57. The lease allows historic Pier 57 to be restored and redeveloped into a mixed-use development with retail, office and public open space, among other uses. Plans for Pier 57 were the subject of comprehensive environmental review conducted in accordance with the State Environmental Quality Review Act ("SEQRA").
Redevelopment of Pier 57 is currently under way. Once completed, the restored pier will include a mix of office use, retail and restaurant uses (including but not limited to a public marketplace), cultural, entertainment and educational uses, and substantial public open space including a new rooftop park. Construction costs are the obligation of the Tenant, which will also be required to pay rent to the Trust throughout the lease term.
