Now that phase one of St. George’s Lighthouse Point project – a 12-story, 116-unit mixed-use building with residential units and commercial space at 35A Bay Street – is under construction and gaining attention, Triangle Equities is shifting focus on to the second phase. The developer has partnered with Starwood Hotel & Resorts for a 12-story, 175-key Westin hotel, which will be built adjacent and connected to one of four existing industrial buildings, the Wall Street Journal reported. The hotel, dubbed the Westin New York Staten Island, will encompass 190,000 square feet and will include 15,000 square feet of event space. Many of its luxury amenities and a restaurant will be located in the industrial building. The other three industrial buildings will be redeveloped into an additional 30,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial space. Perkins Eastman is designing and Andres Escobar is responsible for the interiors, although new building applications haven’t been filed for the hotel. Completion of the hotel is expected in 2019.
Property owner Guido Passarelli, doing business as an anonymous Syosset, N.Y.-based LLC, has filed applications for a suburban-esque three-story, 197,333-square-foot commercial-retail building at 165 Bricktown Way, in Charleston, located along Staten Island’s West Shore. The new building will contain retail space on the ground floor, followed by a movie theater on the second floor and an upper mezzanine level. The movie theater will be equipped with a concession stand, a bar/lounge, and offices. It’s unclear how many screens the movie theater will have, or who will run it. Philadelphia-based JKRP Architects is the architect of record. The site measures a whopping 479,290 square feet and is currently vacant.
Staten Island-based Foster Development has filed applications for three three-story, single-family houses at 121-125 Hendricks Avenue, in St. George, located along Staten Island’s North Shore. Two of the houses will measure 2,050 square feet and the last will measure 1,946 square feet, which means the project will probably be geared towards families. There will be a total of six off-street parking spaces, one of which will be housed in a small garage. Joseph M. Morace’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 75-foot-wide, 7,500-square-foot property is currently vacant.
Staten Island-based property owner James Mangone has filed applications for two three-story, two-family houses at 370-374 Crystal Avenue, in Westerleigh. That’s a neighborhood just north of CUNY College of Staten Island. Each of the buildings will measure 3,459 square feet. In both, there will be one unit on the ground floor, followed by a second unit on the two upper floors. They should average 1,198 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized apartments. Each will come with a single-car, 297-square-foot garage. James V. Morri’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 8,000-square-foot plot was occupied by a single-story house until that was demolished earlier this month.
Staten Island-based Foster Development has filed applications for five two-story, two-family houses at 109-125 Greenfield Avenue, in Clifton. That’s a neighborhood along Staten Island’s North Shore. The buildings will each measure between 3,960 square feet and 4,043 square feet. Across the entire development, the full-floor residential units should average a family-sized 1,331 square feet apiece. Each house will also feature a single-car garage in the cellar. Joseph M. Morace’s Staten Island-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 188-foot-wide, 23,124-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The site is three blocks from the neighborhood’s Staten Island Railway station.
