Has St. George Arrived?

PENTHOUSE 9H

PENTHOUSE 9H AT THE ACCOLADE IN STATEN ISLAND

Yesterday, Curbed.com posited this very question in a post regarding the recent $1 Million dollar sale of a Staten Island Penhouse.

Welcome Staten Island to the million-dollar condo club: This year, two penthouse apartments in The Accolade, a building in St. George right by the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, sold for more than $1 million apiece—the first condos in the borough to go for that much. Penthouse 9G closed for nearly $1.3 million in May, and just this week, Penthouse 9H (pictured here) closed for more than $1 million. The three-bedroom duplex has views of the harbor, Manhattan, and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

Does this mean St. George has arrived? Maybe: The Accolade has sold nearly all of its penthouses, save one (which is currently on the market for $1.35 million), and it’s tempting residents with amenities like a kids’ play room, a gym,a pet spa, on-site parking, and landscaping and snow removal.
