New building permits have been filed for a seven-story hotel at 35 Port Richmond Avenue in Elm Park, Staten Island. The site is distant from public transport, though it is about one mile from the first exit off the Bayonne Bridge, which connects with New Jersey. Three blocks from the lot is the waterside Faber Park, a small scenic public green space. M.S. Savani Architecture is listed as responsible for the design.
The 77-foot tall structure will yield 27,500 square feet, with 21,060 square feet dedicated to commercial use. 61 guest rooms will be yielded, though no parking spaces will be included on site. Visitors will have access to a café, bicycle storage, and a laundry room.
