Staten Island, New York
Lighthouse Point is the product of a public-private partnership with the City of New York. Triangle Equities was selected through an RFP process run by the NYC Economic Development Corporation (EDC) for development of mixed residential and commercial uses in the St. George district of Staten Island. Triangle Equities aims to create a transit-oriented, residential, retail and hospitality destination making direct connections to the Staten Island Ferry parking and pedestrian systems. The development will reestablish St. George’s place in history through the restoration and stimulation of the currently vacant U.S. Lighthouse Depot Complex, a federally registered National Historic Site. Lighthouse Point consists of a 62,000 SF retail building on the corner of Bay Street and Borough Place to be programmed with a retail, fresh food supermarket, restaurants and entertainment space. Above this retail building, a residential tower will be constructed for approximately 109 rental apartments, with twenty percent permanently affordable to households earning 60% of AMI. Along the waterfront esplanade, the four historic buildings of the U.S. Lighthouse Depot Complex will be repurposed into over 23,000 SF of mixed-use restaurant, office and hospitality space and provide a linkage to the 140,000 SF, 180-room new construction hotel tower. Parking for 400 cars will utilize the site topography and be built into the hillside in a new construction garage. The synergy and multiple uses of the different buildings at Lighthouse Point aims to evoke the feelings of an old-world European village and restore the sense of historic grandeur to this notable site.
