The Pointe weathers hurricane Sandy

via Staten Island Advance

While Hurricane Sandy battered much of Staten Island’s coastline, The Pointe condominium on the north shore waterfront in St. George fared exceptionally well, much to the delight of its residents.

Power was restored in less than 24 hours and no damage was sustained to the new 57-home condominium building, which is located at 155 Bay St., just steps from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal.

“The systems performed as planned and the building was virtually unaffected,” notes Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, Inc., The Pointe’s exclusive marketing and sales agent. “One homeowner sent ownership an email praising the building’s quality construction and commenting on how happy she was that they fared so well during the storm.”

Brought to market earlier this year by real estate investment firm, Meadow Partners, The Pointe is a modern, six-story building featuring a variety of one- and two-bedroom homes ranging in size from 962 to 1,255 square feet of living space. More than 50 percent of The Pointe’s 57 residences have already been sold, with closings underway.

Attractively priced from the $300,000s and available for immediate occupancy, the residences are equipped with top-of-the-line stainless steel Kitchen appliances; sumptuous baths featuring high-end stone and ceramic tile; a full-size washer and dryer; abundant closet space. Hardwood floors are complemented by an exceptional palette of interior finishes. Each home also offers private outdoor space, while the building features an expansive common landscapea terrace – all of which maximize the spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and Hudson River. Onsite garage parking is also available.

Residents also enjoy an elegant attended lobby, stylishly designed with marble flooring, artistic stone borders, and custom wall coverings. The Pointe is located in an area with extensive plans for exciting new retail and recreational attractions, including the recent announcement to develop a 350,000 square-foot mall housing 100 retail outlets and the transformation of the former U.S. Lighthouse Depot into a $140-million waterfront enclave featuring stores, restaurants, a hotel and housing.
