Planning - Transit
Staten Island, NY
Present - 2009

The North Shore of Staten Island abuts the Kill Van Kull, one of the most heavily trafficked marine navigation channels in the Eastern United States, a critical thoroughfare for goods to Port Newark and the New York City region. 

This project is part of the redevelopment of a former gypsum manufacturing facility into a new marine industrial dock with ship mooring and truck dispatching infrastructure, with a new public multimodal greenway corridor.

The former facility received gypsum by barge for distribution by rail and truck. A historic freight corridor, built through the property with a spur to service the operations and other coastal businesses, is now proposed to be reinstated as a public transit way, terminating at the Staten Island ferry to Manhattan. Landing Studio is working with a marine terminal operator and city planners to re-configure the railway for easier connections to the community and to create new pedestrian amenities, including a greenway corridor, bike lanes, and an industrial overlook, while also choreographing the rail to facilitate the operations of the marine industrial dock.
