Amy Plitt at Curbed.com shares this latest development:
The redevelopment of Staten Island’s St. George neighborhood is chugging right along, and earlier this week, one of the huge projects set for the waterfront—Lighthouse Point—got its proper groundbreaking (though construction began late last year).
Developer Triangle Equities also announced some updates to the site, including the anchor tenant for its 65,000-square-foot retail and office component. That space will go to Regus, a co-working space that already has several offices throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. The stakeholders in Lighthouse Point (which include the NYCEDC and Goldman Sachs’s Urban Investment Group) are positioning this as a boon to the neighborhood, that could “attract out-of-town users who may need short term meeting or office space, therefore positively affecting the interest and patronage of surrounding hotels, retailers, and restaurants” (per a press release). We’ll see about that.
