Lighthouse Point has been named a winner in the 33rd Annual Design Commission Awards for Excellence in Design in New York City. Congratulations to the project teams!
Lighthouse Point is a key project in the revitalization of the St. George waterfront. This three-acre mixed-use development includes a residential tower of 116 housing units, 20% of which will be affordable, 60,000 square feet of retail, and a 180 room hotel as its first phase. The design successfully preserves the character of the existing 19th-century U.S. Lighthouse Depot buildings within the contemporary development through the use of contrasting scale and materiality. The refurbished historic curved brick perimeter wall guides visitors down Bay Street to the grand cantilevered entrance. A stepped site plan features ample public open space with terraced lawns and plazas above the historic structures, which will be restored and adapted to new use as part of future phases of the project. When completed, this former Naval site will be transformed into a dynamic space that connects residents and visitors to the historic waterfront and Staten Island’s vibrant civic center.
