If your corporate meeting is looking at hotel accommodations in Chelsea or the Meatpacking District, it will soon have 425,000 square feet of retail and restaurants with in walking distance at Pier 57 on the Hudson River. The new restaurants will be built from repurposed shipping containers.
The renovated pier will include an amphitheater that will be constructed from old airplane fuselages.. The Tribeca Film Festival will use 100,000 square feet as a permanent outdoor venue.
Pier 57 will also feature cooking schools, art galleries and music recording studios. We have recently seen major interest from meeting planners for these kinds of venues.
