Permits have been filed for another major parking facility at 1441 South Avenue, in Bloomfield, Staten Island. The development is connected to an office building designed by CetraRuddy. The site is disconnected from the Staten Island Railway. Two bus lines are the only public transport that connect the location with the rest of the borough. This explains the need for a massive parking garage like the one proposed. Nicotra Group will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for two addresses, at 540 and 550 Garage Gulf Avenue, in Bloomfield, Staten Island. The area is mainly used by construction companies for storing their larger equipment. Recently the neighborhood has seen a rise in commercial development, including the nearby Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, E-Z Pass department, and the Key Food corporate office, and the new garages are linked to Amazon’s new distribution center in the vicinity.
Staten Island rarely sees major new developments, and when it does, they normally appear on the island’s northeastern shorefront, in and around the St. George ferry terminal. But now, in the borough’s Bloomfield neighborhood on the far western side of the island, new job applications have been filed for an office building that will span just shy of 325,000 square feet, with a design by CetraRuddy Architects.
