The Homeport, a 35-acre U.S. Naval Base in Staten Island,was decommissioned in 1993. In 2012, demolition began on the complex to pave the way for a new, mixed-use residential community in accordance with the community-driven New Stapleton Waterfront Development Plan.
The first phase of the development will activate and reconnect an underutilized waterfront through new housing opportunities, retail and significant improvements in public infrastructure.
The Ironstate Development Company is in the process of transforming 7 acres into sustainable rental housing units and retail stores. In addition, the City will invest $33 million for road improvements and a new waterfront esplanade for the historic Stapleton community and all of Staten Island. Future phases of development will include additional public open space.
