A Major Retail Center is Coming To Staten Island

While there's no denying that you can get literally anything you desire in New York, wouldn't it be nice to not have to run to three different locations just to pick up a few things? Well, it seems like the city has been thinking that way and is putting a bigger focus on providing New Yorkers with high-quality shopping areas. One of the newest plans includes adding a new retail center, to be known as Riverside Galleria, to Staten Island.

The Details:
WF Liberty LLC is developing the project, with Studio V Architecture designing it. Construction is set to begin in 2018 and be completed by mid-2019.

The Numbers:
The Galleria will be made up of 589,618 square feet of space over three stories which will be divided into:
  • 300,328 square feet of general retail space
  • An 80,000 square foot supermarket
  • 53,770 square feet of restaurants
  • A 55,000 square foot cinema
  • 1,721 parking spaces.

Getting Around:
The complex will be made up of several different buildings, rather that a single one. In addition to the 1,721 parking spaces, there will many private drives throughout the complex as well as many walkways for pedestrians. These walkways will also include elevated paths that will connect commercial spaces.

Why the Parking Spaces:
Staten Island happens to be an area with very little public transit, and that isn't changing just because of this shopping center. The parking spaces will allow patrons to easily get to and from the complex without having to struggle to find parking.
