Manhattan-based Maxwell-Kates has proposed to build a six-story, 68-unit residential project at 93 Monroe Avenue, in St. George, located on Staten Island’s North Shore. The developer is seeking a zoning variance from the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA), DNAinfo reported. The proposal includes roughly double the number of residential units permitted under current zoning and would rise 20 feet above the height cap. The block-thru assemblage consists of four single- and two-story houses. Neither new building applications nor demolition permits have been filed. The lots were acquired for an undisclosed amount in 2015. Staten Island Borough President James Oddo is publicly urging the BSA to reject granting a the variance.

    if the BSA lets Maxwell-Kates get get away with a variance then no residential neighborhood anywhere in NYC is safe. Why bother having zoning laws if the BSA can simply erase them at will?

  3. Are you kidding. There are 3 schools across the street, seems very unsafe for the children already.

    The apartments will feature large, open spaces, with modern kitchens and island peninsulas. The units have bigger floor plans than the student-targeted housing being proposed around town as well.
