Water Street apartment tower, Seaport museum await ruling
It’s make-or-break time for Howard Hughes Corp.’s hot-button apartment-tower proposal at 250 Water St., near the South Street Seaport.
On Monday, HHC will file a scaled-down design with the Landmarks Preservation Commission that’s about 27 percent smaller than the original plan the panel rejected in January.
“We heard their feedback,” HHC New York Tristate Region President Saul Scherl said. “We addressed a lot of their concerns regarding height and mass, and we moved away from the tower design.”
