Lease Amendment No. 1
Final Environmental Impact Statement
Statement of Findings
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 environmental review and 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.
In 2018, the Trust conducted another formal public review process associated with a proposed lease amendment that was subsequently approved by the Board of Directors at its meeting on September 26, 2018.
A copy of the executed lease, Lease Amendment No. 1 and environmental review documentation are available on this page.
