The project team behind a sprawling senior housing complex in Staten Island recently returned to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) in an effort to gain enough support to begin work on the new development. Located atop a small hill at 4500 Arthur Kill Road, plans for the development include construction of 11 residential buildings surrounding the historic Kreischer House.
4500 Arthur Kill Road
New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) recently reviewed proposals to transform the grounds surrounding Charleston, Staten Island’s historic Kreischer Mansion into an 11-building residential complex. The LPC had generally positive comments about the project, located at 4500 Arthur Kill Road, but did request some minor changes to the proposals including the height of the new residential structures, proposed landscaping, and the distance between the Victorian home and the new construction.
