The six residential units will share 6,705 square feet of total residential space, for average individual homes of 1,118 square feet. Also Staten Island-based Joseph Morace is the architect of record, and the site’s old 1.5-story home was demolished earlier this year.

The building’s entire floor area will total 68,607 square feet, and it will replace an old single-story warehouse structure and adjacent small retail building.
