“Officers Club” Up for Grabs

largervia DNAInfo – An Army building that’s more than 80 years old could become a new office or commercial space under a National Parks Service plan.

NPS released a request for proposals Friday for a tenant to take over Building 109 at Fort Wadsworth, commonly referred to as the “Officers Club,” for a variety of uses including office space, headquarters for a not-for-profit and commercial space.

“Fort Wadsworth is a hidden gem in Staten Island,” Gateway superintendent Jennifer T. Nersesian said in a statement.

“Leasing Building 109 is an opportunity for adaptive reuse of this historic building and also may be a way for more people to discover this great cultural and natural resource.”

The “Officers Club” was built inside Fort Wadsworth, a public park that still serves as a military base, in 1938 by the Army as part of an expansion of the site to serve supportive housing for permanent troops stationed there, according to NPS.
