    This affordable housing term is so whack, from maybe 200 or more apts only 48 are affordable is not true. I live in one of this supposedly affordable apts and I pay 1,100 for one bedroom. These apts are not affordable if people are going to this kind of rent. They haven’t got the demolition permits yet. This complex should be done by 2020.

    did project hospitality put out bids for this site? who owns it? was in appraised? sounds like a homeless shelter- way too much secrecy involved in this deal. when will the staten island elected speak up? what are the tax breaks for the DiBlasio crony?

  8. Why build this eye sore in this up coming neighborhood Where so many have purchase homes And but some much money into them. Thinking they can grow with the neighborhood And get a great investment, this is really a project And it will tear down the neighborhood where everyone has been putting their hard earned money Into improve in the neighborhood, this will start a building of many tall buildings now. It did not work in the koch days , it brought Neighborhoods down And people moved out , Selling their houses. The city and our representatives For the area don’t care. They are making the back door deals. It’s the Democratic Party, the for left who do this for money and also take neighborhoods down At the same time. It never worked and it will never work. Ps where are the families going to park their cars in a small neighborhood , zoning law R3A. 48 families. Could have two to three cars. 144 cars I’ll be selling my home fast and I moved here from Brooklyn from a place that this happen. Life is going to get bad here.

  9. Stop building on Staten Island. Our family has lived here for generations. Keep your building projects
