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.

    Must be one of the few areas below the S.I. Expressway where apartment buildings are permitted. R3-2 zoning in the NA-1 area.
