Plaza Construction Completes New York City’s Tin Building

NEW YORK, NY — Plaza Construction recently rebuilt and reopened the Tin Building at Pier 17, the site of the former Fulton Fish Market and now houses the Jean-Georges Gourmet Food Hall. Plaza led the detailed replication of the NYC Landmarks building in the South St. Seaport district.

“We’re proud to have been part of the historical project that is the Tin Building,” said Thomas D’Ercole, Executive Vice President of Plaza Construction. “This one-of-a-kind building is an exceptional example of how national landmarks can be repurposed in the modern context and brought up to date with modern amenities.”

Plaza Construction dismantled the entire structure of the original Fulton Fish Market and removed the existing pier prior to building a new pier. This allowed the new building to be relocated 33 feet to the east and elevated so it is out of the flood plain. Plaza then proceeded to build the new structure, while restoring select iron and steel structural members and providing an exact replication of the facade, along with keeping the flavor of the original fish market.

The interior component, headed by Peter J. Hulbert, Plaza’s Executive in Charge, included commercial kitchens and exotic food stations to serve the gourmet eatery with specialty destinations, and a full traditional marketplace where shoppers can find everything from fresh bread and cheese to fish and meat.
