Earlier this year, YIMBY reported on applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 428 St. Marks Place, in St. George on Staten Island, and now the developer is demolishing the site’s dilapidated 2.5-story wood-frame structure, DNAinfo reports. Developer Anthony Guglieri is currently taking the project through ULURP and plans to begin actual construction in 2016. The project will measure 4,675 square feet in total, and units will be condos, averaging 853 square feet each. A 410 square-foot retail unit will take up the ground floor. Frank Martarella’s Staten Island-based Think Design Architecture is the architect of record.
Property owner Kaplan Ibraimovic has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 35 Monroe Avenue, in St. George, on Staten Island.

Staten Island-based Frank Vaccaro is the applicant of record, and a recessed garage, originally associated with the neighboring residence, must first be demolished.
Last week, the city approved structural design changes to the New York Wheel project in St. George, on the northern tip of Staten Island, according to Commercial Observer. The changes mostly have to do with the 950-car parking garage, which will now be four levels and more environmentally sustainable. Over the summer, construction began on the footprint of the 630-foot-tall Ferris wheel, and by August, cranes arrived on site. The majority of the caissons have been planted, and construction of the Ferris wheel will begin early next year, with completion slated for the first half of 2017.
