Howard Hughes Corp. Names Co-Presidents to Lead Seaport Redevelopment

The Howard Hughes Corporation has named Andrew Schwartz and Zach Winick co-presidents of the company’s New York region. They will lead the continued revitalization of the Seaport neighborhood in Lower Manhattan.  

Schwartz will lead partnerships and programming and Winick will oversee operations and development as they succeed outgoing regional president Saul Scherl, who will continue in an advisory role.  

“We are fortunate to have Andrew and Zach taking the helm of our New York region as we enter this dynamic next chapter at the Seaport,” said David R. O’Reilly, CEO of The Howard Hughes Corporation. “With their years of demonstrated expertise and leadership, they will continue to drive the success of the Seaport neighborhood, which is one of New York City’s most unique destinations—with the Tin Building, The Rooftop at Pier 17, and the array of restaurants, experiential retail and creative offices that are helping redefine Lower Manhattan.”
