NEW YORK CITY-The City Planning Commission on Monday kicked off public review for a redevelopment project intended to transform Staten Island’s North Shore waterfront, including a 625-foot Ferris wheel. The project, which will also include the first outlet mall in the five boroughs, now must make the six-month journey through the mandatory Uniform Public Use Review Procedure.

“Many past planning efforts, including the recent Vision 2020: New York City Comprehensive Waterfront Plan and the North Shore 2030 report, have called for improved use of and investment in the North Shore’s waterfront,” according to the New York City Economic Development Corp., which is spearheading the project intended to transform the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island. The development of two adjacent sites near the Richmond County Bank Ballpark is intended to “complement and bolster the economic growth of St. George and of Staten Island. It will attract more of the approximately two million tourists who ride the Staten Island ferry each year, as well as increased numbers of New York City and Staten Island residents, to the underutilized waterfront.”
