Though they didn’t have much luck with their controversial tower at the Seaport, SHoP Architects and the Howard Hughes Corporation have gotten approvals for their revamp of the historic, 1983 Fulton Market Building. Yimby reports that on Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the revised design for the building’s exterior, which alters the signage from the original 2014 proposal. To show how the signs will look, SHoP prepared several new renderings of the site.
Though the LPC doesn’t have jurisdiction over what the signs actually say, they do regulate their size. Some commissioners were concerned, but they approved the eight signs as long as they are comparable to the existing “FULTON MARKET” signage. There will be eight in total; three will be for the iPic Theaters multiplex, two for the Tuck Room bar, and three for a not-yet-determined tenant. An opening date for the building has not been released.
