Pier 17 Pavilion

South Street between Fulton and Beekman Streets
SHoP Architects, 2015-

In the early 1980s, Piers 17 and 18 were combined to accommodate a large shopping pavilion, designed by Benjamin Thompson & Associates and completed in 1985 as part of the Rouse Company’s redevelopment of the Seaport. Despite widespread controversy and opposition by community members and preservation groups, the demolition of the Thompson building and its replacement with a glassy mall, was approved by the LPC in 2012.

The Pier 17 Pavilion was located in the New York City and State and National Register of Historic Places South Street Seaport historic districts.
