NYC Names Developer for Staten Island Offshore Wind Port Facility
New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has selected NorthPoint Development to transform Rossville Municipal Site, a 33-acre city owned waterfront industrial property in Staten Island, into an offshore wind (OSW) port facility, for manufacturing and assembling wind turbine components.
The Rossville site is one of the few remaining industrial waterfront properties available and suitable for waterfront-dependent industrial uses in the region. The project will be located at 2629 Arthur Kill Rd. and includes a never used liquified natural gas vessel tanker pier, approximately 2,000 linear feet of shoreline along the federally maintained Arthur Kill Channel and easy access to the regional highway network as significant assets.
“Revitalizing Staten Island’s West Shore is another crucial step forward in creating a nation-leading offshore wind ecosystem in New York and moves us closer to achieving the city’s ambitious climate goals,” said NYCEDC COO Melissa Román Burch.
