The complex, located at 224 Richmond Terrace in St. George right by the Staten Island Ferry Terminal and Empire Outlets projects, is called The View. It stands 11 stories tall and was built in 2012, and it contains 16 one-bedroom apartments, 24 two-bedroom apartments, three commercial units, and 28 parking spots.
