Hollister named construction manager by Triangle Equities
NEW YORK, NY — Hollister Construction Services was engaged by Triangle Equities, a New York-based developer, to build Lighthouse Point, a historic mixed-use, transit-oriented development project located on Staten Island’s St. George Waterfront. The company is preparing to break ground on the project later this year.Lighthouse Point will create a gateway to and from Staten Island: a transit-oriented, residential, retail and hospitality destination making direct connections to the Staten Island Ferry parking and pedestrian systems. The $200 million, public-private project includes restoration and stimulation of the currently vacant U.S. Lighthouse Depot Complex, a federally registered National Historic Site.
Brendan Murray, vice president, with Hollister Construction Services will personally serve as the executive for Hollister, with Vincent Solano, vice president, leading preconstruction efforts. The architects for the mixed-use project are Cooper Carry in conjunction with Garrison Architects.“We have seen first-hand the positive impact that developments like Lighthouse Point can have on communities,” said Chris Johnson, CEO & founder of Hollister. “We are very excited about the changes this project will bring to the district of St. George, and Staten Island as a whole.”Anchoring the development will be 65,000 s/f of retail and office space on the corner of Bay St. and Borough Place. A residential tower with approximately 116 rental apartments, 20% of which will be affordable housing units, will be built directly above the retail building. In addition, a 300-car parking garage will be built into the hillside, providing ample parking to residents and visitors.Phase II of the project will happen along the waterfront esplanade – the four historic buildings of the U.S. Lighthouse Depot Complex will be rehabilitated. The repurposed buildings will house more than 23,000 s/f of restaurant, office and hospitality space, and link to a new 145,000 s/f, 180-room hotel tower with up to 15,000 s/f of event space.
