 A near two-century old banquet hall has sat shuttered on Staten Island since 2005. Now the landmarked Pavilion on the Terrace, at 404 Richmond Terrace, is seeing new life.

Lawyer Kecia Weaver and her husband purchased the historic building last year and are planning to return it to its original use as a catering hall, according to DNAinfo.

“I think everybody’s going to be excited,” said Weaver, whose project received approval from Community Board 1 this week. “It’s a nice building, but I’m looking to really make it gorgeous.”

The mansion’s exterior remains in good shape, but the inside of the building has mostly been destroyed by water damage.

“The inside is just a total mess,” Weaver said. “The walls are peeling, the walls are lopsided. We’re pretty much going to have to gut it out.”

The restoration will take about a year to complete, according to Weaver.

The building was built in 1835, and is the last of five Greek revival mansions in the neighborhood. [DNAinfo]Christopher Cameron
