Now this could use a 450ft ferris wheel! Will be a pretty nice development overall for the area... in addition to the ferry/SI Yankee waterfront area.

City Sets Aside $66 Million for S.I. Development


The Navy home port in Stapleton, on Staten Island, is one of the many corners of the city where government promises of development are planted like tulip bulbs each season but fail to bloom.

The city gained ownership of the site, which looms south of the St. George Ferry Terminal, after the closing of the naval base there in 1995.

Speculators drove real estate prices up, and the recession smacked them back down, shuttering businesses along the way. Rezoning initiatives came and went. And, most recently, a film studio development project backed by the Giuliani administration was ended by the Bloomberg administration after it was deemed economically unfeasible and one of the principals was found to have once pleaded guilty to fraud.

Yesterday, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced that the city had earmarked $66 million to develop the site - for real this time, he said - and that by 2009 or so, a vibrant community would finally rise on the waterfront site.

After a task force studied the area for a year, the city's Economic Development Corporation issued requests for proposals for engineering and landscape design services to transform the home port into a development with residential buildings, stores and restaurants.

The plans - which Mr. Bloomberg announced on the pier at the home port, with city flags whipping in the wind behind him - include a sports complex, a banquet hall, a restaurant and a farmers' market.

The project will include a restoration of Tappen Park, Mr. Bloomberg said, and open space will make up almost half the 36-acre site.

Since the naval base closed, Staten Islanders entered into a decadelong debate envisioning "new housing, open space and new jobs," Mr. Bloomberg said. "And until now, that grand promise has largely gone untapped. But today after a decade of false starts, I'm excited to unveil a final plan to turn Homeport into an economic and recreation jewel for all of Staten Island and in fact for all of the city."

Staten Island is just piling on the megaprojects. There's the 65-acre development (http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2013/06/14/65_acres_of_staten_islands_south_shore_set_for_dev elopment.php) on the borough's South Shore in Charleston; the SHoP-designed, giant-wheel-equipped complex (http://ny.curbed.com/tags/staten-island-observation-wheel) near the St. George Ferry Terminal; and today ground broke (http://www.nycedc.com/press-release/mayor-bloomberg-breaks-ground-construction-new-stapleton-waterfront-staten-island) on a 900-unit mixed-use development on a former Navy port in Stapleton. The $180 million project is part of the city's New Stapleton Waterfront revitalization plan, and in addition to housing, it will bring 30,000-square-feet of retail and a public waterfront esplanade. Post-Sandy, developer Ironstate Development reworked the design of the LEED-certified project to incorporate more flood-prevention measures.

Not only will the project be constructed two feet higher than previously planned, but it will be surrounded by open space that will protect against flooding and shoreline corrosion. A 30,000-square-foot cove of tidal wetlands will be created between Canal and Water Streets, and a storm water management system will include 60,000-square-feet of bio-swales that will remove pollution from the water before it reaches the bay.

The first stage of the project, to be complete by 2015, will se 340,000-square-feet of residential and 25,000-square-feet of retail and parking. The second phase will bring 260,000-square-feet of residential and 5,000-square-feet of retail.
