Bayer’s Bayseal closed-cell SPF was used for a unique shipping container application for New York’s South Street Seaport. SPRING, TX – October 18, 2013 – Almost one year after Hurricane Sandy walloped the northeast seaboard, one destination in New York City is finally ready to celebrate. Thanks to the concerted efforts of The Howard Hughes Corporation and a resourceful design and construction team, the historic South Street Seaport is not only open for business, but showcasing a vibrant facelift called See/Change. Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation from Bayer MaterialScience LLC played an important role in the quick project delivery. The South Street Seaport is a designated historic riverfront district in Lower Manhattan. The area is a popular tourist destination and home to many shops, restaurants and bars. Redevelopment following Hurricane Sandy sought to reinvigorate the Seaport with more open public and rooftop areas, dynamic retail spaces, and a more contemporary overall feel.
