    Smashing location is waterfront and three buildings in Staten Island, deeply pierced on the complex all about apartments.

    Wow! What A GREAT Addition To The Staten Island Housing Scene! Much Needed! And Great Looking Buildings To Boot!!! I Am Thinking Probably Not Too FAr From The Soon To Be Opened EMPIRE OUTLETS! Creating Much Needed JOBS and HOUSING For Staten Island Residents! A WIN-WIN!!!!

    Staten Island’s limited water/sewer/road infrastructure cannot handle developments of this size. Doubtful the Staten Island council delegation will support the rezoning.

    This development will need way more than 346 parking spaces for 400 apartments. Staten Island is car dependent because it’s more spread out. Not unusual for SI couples to own 2 vehicles. My guess is that 450 parking spaces is more realistic, but event hat may not be enough. Now there’s on street parking around there but those surrounding blocks are still kind of desolate.

    Traffic in this area is already unbearable never mind the lack of parking and the big one of over crowded schools.

    Worst idea EVER. Where would these kids go to school? GTFOH

    Yes,let’s keep building right up to the waters edge. Everyone knows global warming is a hoax, and a storm like Sandy will never ever happen again.

    So excited to see Staten Island turning the corner!! We welcome the much needed changes to our waterfront as there is so much to take advantage of! I love the design and pedestrian use of the esplanade is fabulous!! Much better than the tides on the south shore waterfront overlooking New Jersey chemical plants!! Plus, it’s walking distance to the train which is perfect for city commuting and vicinity to the empire outlets and other developments. The area needs this to revive itself. Bring the people and the city will respond with schools and services!! Something has to start the change. V capital is simply taking the lead here! Can’t wait to see it!!

    what a great idea. staten island is the new north Williamsburg. only with less poloution

    I’m all for it as long as the local infrastructure is upgraded to support the new construction. More consistent bus service on Bay street, better lighting in the area (the street lights are dingy and should be upgraded (lights or lenses). How about another public school to alleviate overcrowding? I would also hope that their plans include some of the city’s recommendations for design for excellence and any proposals for berms, green infrastructure, etc… are not cost reduced because of overruns in construction costs. Adding buildings is great, developing the shoreline is fantastic but let’s make sure that the surrounding areas benefit from his addition and not make these building a nugget of gold in a pile of crap.

    Another reason why this project will be opposed by Staten Islanders –

    I don’t think they will need many parking spaces – Section 8 gives free bus passes.
