Tin Building Adaptive-Reuse Project Featured in NAIOP Development Magazine

NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, featured the Tin Building project in a recent issue of Development Magazine. The article, titled “The Tin Building: A Fish Market Morphs into a Dining Destination,” delves into how the project revitalized a landmark that had fallen upon hard times.

Langan provided geotechnical, waterfront, survey, and 3D laser scanning services for the adaptive-reuse project, led by Howard Hughes Corporation and designed by SHoP Architects (Project Architect; core and shell) and Mancini Duffy (Architect of Record). The Langan team inspected the existing bulkhead, conducted subsurface exploration, designed the new pile-supported platform, and provided traditional surveying and 3D laser scanning for the project. This combination of surveying services allowed the team to generate drawings in a cost-effective and timely manner while capturing the fine details of the historic structure.

Located in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport historic district, the Tin Building was originally built in 1907 as a seafood market for the Fulton Fishmongers Association. After the market moved to the Bronx in 2005, the building was left empty—until, following nearly a decade of planning and construction, the project team reconstructed the space 32 feet east of the original location and transformed it into a high-end dining and food hall.

The three-floor, 53,000 SF Tin Building opened to the public in September 2022.
