Staten Island’s Garibaldi-Meucci Museum has proposed the installation of a new 34-foot monument on the western edge of the property. Titled “Venzia New York,” the new sculpture would rise from a 20-foot by 20-foot concrete base accompanied by a new concrete walkway, a dedicated plaque, and additional benches in the museum’s front lawn.
Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 3865 Amboy Road, in Great Kills, Staten Island. 3865 Amboy Road sits right on Amboy Road, a popular commercial thoroughfare in the neighborhood, and is about three blocks away from the Staten Island Railroad’s Great Kills station.

New construction permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 221 Port Richmond Avenue, in Staten Island’s Port Richmond neighborhood. The corner site, between Castleton Avenue and Anderson Avenue, will soon be home to 48 affordable housing units, to be completed by 2021.

Hudson Companies is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for an enormous seven-story storage facility at 2111 Richmond Terrace, in Staten Island. Located in the Port Richmond Neighborhood, the site is most easily accessible via the Bayonne Bridge to New Jersey. Carlos Vizcarra of Americo Real Estate Company is behind the filings.
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.
