ESPN to broadcast from HHC’s Seaport District NYC

ESPN will open a 19,000-sq.-ft. broadcast studio at Howard Hughes Corporation’s re-do of Manhattan’s South Street Seaport in spring of 2018.

Working out of Pier 17 at the waterfront development now titled Seaport District NYC, the cable sports network will produce several studio shows and radio broadcasts from the location. ESPN is likely to take advantage of Pier 17’s rooftop space for New York location shots when it opens next summer, HHC reported.

“Television goes where the audience is, and the historic Seaport welcomes millions of New Yorkers, visitors, and potential audience members each year,” said Barry Katz, general manager NEP Group, ESPN’s New York studio partner.

HHC colored Pier 17’s illuminated exterior ESPN red last night to celebrate the signing.
