See how Staten Island's neglected Sea View Hospital could be transformed

Take a virtual reality tour of the development as imagined by the city

Via NYCEDC and Perkins+Will

As the city continues to generate interest in its proposed transformation of Staten Island’s neglected Sea View Hospital campus, it’s now unveiled a virtual reality-enabled mobile tour of the campus.

The VR tour was created in collaboration with architecture firm, Perkins + Will, the firm the city’s Economic Development Corporation consulted with to create the request for expressions of interest (RFEI) last summer.

That RFEI closed recently, but the submissions and results from that won’t be made available for a while. Until then, at least we can have a look at what Perkins+Will and the city imagined for the Sea View Campus.

What we do know from the RFEI is that the city wants to create a mixed-use, health-focussed development with a residential component (affordable units included), several public spaces, and a landscape that promotes physical activity.

In January this year, the city released a drone video to drum up more awareness about the project, and this past weekend the city hosted a public tour of the campus, along with Perkins+Will, which included views with VR headsets too. Now you can check that out below as well.
