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‘s North Shore has been booming with new development over the past few years, with projects including a new outlet mall, a ferris wheel, and various other residential and hotel infill. The rest of the island has also been brimming with similar proposals, with the Staten Island Mall also set for a major expansion. Now, Charleston, on the southwest corner of the island, is about to receive a substantial retail upgrade of its own, with plans submitted for a massive new shopping center totaling almost 600,000 square feet, dubbed the Riverside Galleria, next to Arthur Kill Road and the Outer Bridge Crossing.
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.
Multi-family development is growing on Staten Island’s eastern shore. Last month YIMBY revealed plans for 400 apartments on an industrial site along Edgewater Street in Rosebank. Now we’ve spotted building applications for a 72-unit residential project at 80 Scarboro Avenue, just a few blocks south of the big Edgewater Street development.
A massive residential development is poised to reshape a sleepy stretch of industrial waterfront in Rosebank, along the eastern shore of Staten Island. YIMBY has the first look at the complex, which will stretch across three buildings and 18 acres at 125 Edgewater Street.
