New building permits have been filed for a seven-story hotel at 35 Port Richmond Avenue in Elm Park, Staten Island. The site is distant from public transport, though it is about one mile from the first exit off the Bayonne Bridge, which connects with New Jersey. Three blocks from the lot is the waterside Faber Park, a small scenic public green space. M.S. Savani Architecture is listed as responsible for the design.
The 77-foot tall structure will yield 27,500 square feet, with 21,060 square feet dedicated to commercial use. 61 guest rooms will be yielded, though no parking spaces will be included on site. Visitors will have access to a café, bicycle storage, and a laundry room.
Amritpal Sandhu is leading the development. YIMBY has reported four other new building permits filed by the developer around New York city in similarly unlikely areas.
Images of the building from 2013 show the structure had been decorated with historical signage. Demolition permits have not been filed yet. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
