Staten Island’s North Shore is preparing for four big developments and the 630-foot-tall New York Wheel, which will draw thousands of new residents and a huge influx of visitors to the sleepy industrial waterfront. But the city hasn’t spent much time trying to grapple with the borough’s longstanding infrastructure challenges that will only worsen as the population grows.
Earlier this month, YIMBY brought you news of Saint Joseph’s Medical Center’s plans to develop a supportive housing building at 108-110 Port Richmond Avenue, on Staten Island’s North Shore. A rendering has now surfaced of the project, per DNAinfo, and the structure will hold 50 supportive housing units for the mentally ill, and an additional 27 affordable units. Edelman Sultan Knox Wood Architects is designing, and an existing building must first be demolished.
Triangle Equities is set to break ground this fall on a huge mixed-use project just behind the St. George Ferry Terminal in Staten Island, and YIMBY has new renderings of the hotel-retail-residential complex that will complement a proposed 630-foot-tall ferris wheel.
NNT Development has filed applications for a four-unit residential development spanning the vacant lots 410-416 Bartlett Avenue, in Arden Heights, on Staten Island’s South Shore. The project will consists of a three-story, two-unit building measuring 2,250 square feet, and two single-family homes each measuring 1,460 square feet. Stanley Krebushevski’s Staten Island-based SMK Architect is designing.
Meals on Wheels of Staten Island says it has outgrown its existing building and needs a new one. The city has found them a plot of land, officially listed as 460 Brielle Avenue, at the former Seaview Hospital site (which is across from the New York City Farm Colony, which is being redeveloped as a senior housing complex called Landmark Colony). The design was presented to the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday, but did not pass muster. The commissioners didn’t feel it fit in well enough with its surroundings.
