After receiving Landmarks Preservation Commission approval for a SHoP makeover of a South Street Seaport’s Pier 17, developer Howard Hughes agreed on franchise terms with a Economic Development Corporation and prepared to enter a ULURP process. In a meantime, Howard Hughes also went before some Community Board 1 committees to benefaction a few modifications to Pier 17′s destiny selling mall. The Tribeca Trib has a deets.
