Get ready for the SuperPier, a complex of shops, restaurants, entertainment and boat slips on the Hudson River. The SuperPier is at 15th Street, adjacent to The Meatpacking District, West Chelsea, The High Line park, the new Whitney Museum of modern art, Chelsea Market, a collection of art galleries and shops including an Apple Retail store.
Nearly 12 acres of raw space is being converted now into what developers are calling the most important real estate opening since Rockefeller Center in 1939. I guess these guys never heard of of the World Trade Center, World Financial Center, Battery Park City, Hudson Yards or Barclay Center.
Anyway, SuperPier is due to open in 2015, and it will be a spectacular addition to New York City, which has overlooked the potential of our Hudson River piers for too many years.
