STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Ironstate Development Co. of Hoboken, N.J., will redevelop the approximately seven acres of the Homeport in Stapleton, Staten Island.
The Staten Island Advance ans SILive reported yesterday that Borough President James Molinaro has “confirmed … the $11 million sale and transfer of ownership has taken place. Ironstate has pursued the acquisition since 2009.”
According to the Ironstate Development Co. Web site, the plan calls for a transformation of the decommissioned U.S. Naval Base site into a green development with approximately 800 residential housing units, new stores and a public plaza, creating more than 1,100 construction jobs and 150 permanent jobs.
New York City was to invest $33 million in this first phase of development of the Homeport site for infrastructure improvements and a new waterfront esplanade that will provide community access to the waterfront.
Ironstate Development’s plan called for the buildinging of two residential buildings up to six stories tall each designed to complement the character of the community. The complex will feature ground-floor retail accompanied by wide sidewalks and a public plaza for outdoor dining and to encourage pedestrian activity and public gatherings.
Ironstate intends to capitalize on the Homeport’s tremendous transportation links and unique waterfront location to create an extraordinary new asset for the citizens of Staten Island.
