Though the New York Wheel may be stalled, there are plenty of other large-scale projects moving ahead on Staten Island. In addition to a bevy of new residential developments like Urby and Lighthouse Point, Governor Cuomo recently announced a $151 million plan to build an elevated promenade to improve the east shores’ coastal resiliency and just last month the city awarded a $23 million contract for construction of Freshkills Park’s first major section. Now, Yimby has uncovered details and renderings for the borough’s latest–a nearly 600,000-square-foot retail center headed to the south shore area of Charleston. Designed by Studio V Architecture and known as Riverside Galleria, the complex will not only have plenty of shopping but a supermarket, restaurants, a dine-in cinema, green roofs, a waterfront park, and a series of elevated walkways.
