    Homeport on Staten Island’s waterfront

    Ironstate Development of Hoboken plans to invest $150 million to build apartment buildings, stores and a public plaza as part of the long anticipated redevelopment of the Homeport on Staten Island’s waterfront. Ironstate, formerly known as Applied Development, is teaming up with the city of New York to make over a portion of a former Navy homeport in Stapleton on the northeastern side of Staten Island. Plans call for building two residential buildings up to six stories tall with about 800 apartments on a seven-acre site, according to the city’s Economic Development Corporation. Rents for one-bedrooms would run between $1,200 and $1,500 while two-bedrooms would rent for $1,500 up to $2,000. The complex would include 30,000 square feet of shops and restaurants on the ground floor with wide sidewalks and a public plaza for outdoor dining. The city has committed $33 million for infrastructure improvements including road reconstruction that would improve access to the site from the Stapleton neighborhood and a new waterfront esplanade next to the apartments, which would give the public access to the waterfront. The project would generate more than 1,100 construction jobs and 150 permanent jobs including retail and building maintenance positions. Construction is expected to start in early 2011. more
