Staten Island-based Keegans Construction Corp. has filed applications for four three-story, two-family residential buildings at 12-24 Norman Place, in Prince’s Bay, located on the south shore. Two of the buildings will individually measure 3,568 square feet in total and the other two will each measure a slightly less 3,443 square feet. The residential square-footage across the entire development will total 10,594 square feet, which means units will average 1,324 square feet apiece. The units will likely be geared for families and, therefore, would contain multiple bedrooms. Staten Island-based Calvanico Associates is the architect of record. The 160-foot-wide lot is currently occupied by a single-story home.
Staten Island-based Carmela Estates has filed applications for six three-story, single-family homes at 4-14 Summerfield Place, in Graniteville, located on Staten Island’s north shore. Each of the houses will measure between 2,045 and 2,216 square feet, and they will likely be marketed towards families. The roughly 130-foot-wide site, at the corner of Forest Avenue, is currently vacant. Stanley Krebushevski’s Staten Island-based SMK Architect is the architect of record.
In late 2014, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the 45-acre residential redevelopment of the dilapidated 96-acre New York City Farm Colony campus, located centrally on Staten Island. Last week, the City Council approved plans to sell 45 acres of the property to NFC Associates, the New York Times reports. The Staten Island-based developer will rehabilitate five existing buildings, demolish five others, build 14 multi-unit townhouses, and also build three six-story residential buildings. Dubbed Landmark Colony, there will be a total of 344 condominiums, 34 of which will be sold at below-market rates, but all of which will be home to people 55 and older. Of the 45 redeveloped acres, 17 acres will be landscaped public space, and 17,000 square feet of commercial space is planned. Vengoechea & Boyland Architecture is designing, and units will begin to come online next year.
New construction is suddenly booming on the North Shore of Staten Island, and today, YIMBY has the reveal for a six-story apartment building in the works at 12 Van Duzer Street in Tompkinsville, on the border with St. George.
Besides a few huge residential developments in St. George and Stapleton, most new construction on Staten Island consists of one- and two-family homes. But on Monday, YIMBY noticed an unusual filing for a five-story commercial project at 21 Sylvation Terrace, in a relatively forlorn and industrial piece of the North Shore.
