The Department of City Planning recently signed off on an Environmental Assessment Statement to facilitate the construction of a new five-story mixed-use building at 252 Victory Boulevard in Tompkinsville, Staten Island.
A Florida-based property owner has filed applications for a two-story, four-unit mixed-use building at 339 Victory Boulevard, located on the corner of Cebra Avenue in Tompkinsville, on Staten Island’s North Shore. The project will measure 8,650 square feet. The ground floor will contain 2,793 square feet of commercial-retail space, followed by four residential units on the second floor. The apartments should average 733 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Willy C. Yuin’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 6,217-square-foot corner lot is occupied by a small commercial building. Demolition permits have not been filed.
Staten Island has long been the city’s slowest-growing borough, but the administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio is pushing it to develop more housing. Last Wednesday, the Department of City Planning organized a public forum on the mayor’s plan to rezone Bay Street, an industrial swath of Staten Island’s north shore, in order to encourage new apartments and retail.
New construction is suddenly booming on the North Shore of Staten Island, and today, YIMBY has the reveal for a six-story apartment building in the works at 12 Van Duzer Street in Tompkinsville, on the border with St. George.
