Renderings have been revealed for 475 Bay Street, a new two-phase residential development in Staten Island. Designed by GF55 Partners‘ New York design studio, the project is located in the island’s Stapleton Heights neighborhood just a couple blocks from the Upper Bay waterfront. BFC Partners, the developers of Empire Outlets, is also the entity responsible for 475 Bay Street.
The first phase of development will include construction of a 12-story residential structure with 274 apartments spread across approximately 198,000 square feet. Lower-level retail area will occupy just under 10,000 square feet. In total, the proposed square footage will equal 207,614 square feet.
The ground floor is enclosed in floor-to-ceiling glass, as is typical for a commercial retail component. Above the first floor, the façade transitions into a dark gray stucco material with metal paneling, and the building culminates in a recessed volume with a red brick exterior.
Phase two of development will include a three-story commercial building with a medical office along Wave Street. While the building is partially visible in available renderings, the precise address, buildable square feet, and specific activation have not been specified.
The project team has also not announced an anticipated date of completion for either phase of development.
