Next month the constructions of “Super Pier,” a $200 million food and retail complex for start-ups, pop-ups and local creative companies will start taking place at an old and abandoned pier in New York.
The “Super Pier,” developed by Young S. Woo, is all about creating unity, the “us” generation instead of the “I”. According to Woo, this last decade was all about me, myself and I, now people are slowly starting realize that together you can create so much more.
Also, ever since the coming of the American "chain-store" age, it has been painful to watch how many of main street and local (creative) businesses got killed. Yet, slowly but surely, that cycle is reversing itself visibly. These recent years have been booming with small scale initiatives, refreshing the stale way modern commerce had become. Cool and innovative spaces such as the Super Pier are just another great example of how this movement will only grow bigger, trading quantity for quality for good.
Expect Super Pier, which will also house film, art, and more, to open in the Spring of 2015, when the renovation of the 12 acres of raw space is complete.
Super Pier will extends on-over-& under the Hudson River at West 15th Street adjacent to The Meatpacking District, West Chelsea, The High Line, the Whitney,Chelsea Market, and sits at one of the most trafficked nexuses of the city. The perfect breeding place for culture and showcasing new talent.
