Ironstate Development has revealed renderings for a 900-unit rental community to be built on the site of a former naval base in Staten Island’s Stapleton neighborhood.

Architecture firms Concrete and Minno Waska are behind the designs. The $150 million Urban Ready Living redevelopment project will also contain 600 parking spots and 30,000 square feet of retail space. The site broke ground last summer and is expected to be complete by 2015.

The city is contributing $32 million in funds for infrastructure developments and a waterfront esplanade. The project, which will rejuvenate a parcel of the Homeport base, has been in the works for the past four years, though redevelopment was first proposed two decades ago, as previously reported.
