Enriching SI's North Shore; Sales Launch at 531 Vanderbilt

STATEN ISLAND—Students in Cornell's graduate department of city planning presented their ideas for enriching Staten Island's North Shore in a presentation at the Staten Island Museum in late December. The presentation centered around four proposals, regurgitated here in graduate student speak: create public art installations and a boardwalk to connect the waterfront stretching from the Ferry Terminal to Tompkinsville and Stapleton, establish a park conservancy to fund revitalization through art, food vendors and public programming in Tappen Park and its surroundings, enhance the pedestrian experience around the Stapleton waterfront, and enrich the Bay Street/Richmond Terrace intersection by creating a more navigable intersection for pedestrians. The Design Trust For Public Space has more about the presentation and proposals. [CurbedWire inbox]

CLINTON HILL—Although pricing and interiors for Boaz Gilad's 531 Vanderbilt Avenue were revealed back in November, the building has "officially" launched sales this week. Of the building's 18 apartments, six appear to be up for grabs; they range from a $399,000 studio—the building's least expensive offering—to $594,000 one-bedroom. [CurbedWire inbox; previously]
