NEW YORK | Lighthouse Point + Empire Outlets | 13 fl | Prep

Big happenings are going down near the St George Ferry Terminal in Staten Island. The show stopper of this development frenzy will be the 630 foot tall observation wheel - which will be the world's tallest if it finishes before one being constructed in Dubai. Below will be a mall named "Empire Outlets" and a part-residential mixed used project known as "Lighthouse Point".


New Look : Lighthouse Point, Big Mixed Use Development in Staten Island

Quote:
[...]
The development, dubbed “Lighthouse Point,” will occupy half a million square feet at Borough Place and Bay Street and include the restoration of the landmarked, mid-19th century Lighthouse Depot buildings. When construction is complete, there will be a 62,000-square-foot retail base topped by a 13-story, 110-unit rental building.

The retail component promises to bring a 15,000-square-foot grocery store, 7,000 square feet for restaurants, 5,000 square feet of office space, and 30,000 square feet for an anchor retail tenant or offices. A 12-story hotel with 180 rooms will complete the project, which aims to capture the nearly 2 million tourists who ride the ferry every year.
The public will be able to enjoy a promenade and pier along the waterfront, and the four crumbling Lighthouse depot buildings near the water will be transformed into restaurants, retail and office space.

Nice to finally see some real development in Staten Island. The outlet mall is kind of useless, but the rest looks nice.

And Shenzen.

Is there a thread for the wheel in the World Development News Forums?

First Permits Filed for Lighthouse Point: 35A Bay Street, Staten Island



Quote:
New building applications filed Friday call for a 16-story, 116-unit development at 35A Bay Street, along the waterfront in the northeastern part of the borough. Those apartments will be divided across 97,760 square feet of residential space, for an average unit of 842 square feet. 13 stories of apartments will be stacked on top of two stories of retail, with 47,207 square feet of commercial space.
[...]
The 174-foot-tall building will fill a large, vacant lot owned by the city in the most transit-rich and accessible part of Staten Island. And it will still have a parking garage with 256 underground spaces. Applications have also been filed to build a three-story, 46,000 square foot parking garage next door. It will have another 149 spaces, bringing the project’s total up to 405 parking spots.

Staten Island has poor public transit and the highest rates of car ownership in the city, but this might be the one location where a developer could build less parking.

The ferry terminal is steps away, along with a stop on the Staten Island Railroad and several bus lines.

Over the summer, construction began on the footprint of the 630-foot-tall Ferris wheel, and by August, cranes arrived on site. The majority of the caissons have been planted, and construction of the Ferris wheel will begin early next year, with completion slated for the first half of 2017.

The outlet mall is between the ferry terminal and the stadium.




The ferris wheel is on the other side of the stadium and has a second retail component and a parking garage. The piling machines are on the ferris wheel footings.

Props for making out to Staten Island lol.

As for this project, I'm on the fence. It could be transformative for the north shore, but it still kind of seems like a waste of money.

Mammoet, the global giant of the ultra-heavy transport and lifting, is engaged in one of the highest profile jobs in the world today: the construction of the New York Wheel, a giant Ferris wheel that will change the skyline of the Big Apple. The wheel, which is set to become one of the great attractions of the city, alongside iconic monuments like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building, to its completion in 2017 will be the largest facility of its kind in the world, with a ' height of 190 meters and a half.

Mammoet is working on the project since the beginning of 2014 as part of an ad-hoc joint venture with Starneth BV, a Dutch engineering company specializing in the design and manufacture of wheels and giant panoramic structures. The JV, Mammoet-Starneth LLC is directly responsible for the design and construction of the wheel. In May 2015 work began on laying the foundations and site preparation that will house the hotel and the service building.

The site of the New York Wheel is located on the northeastern coast of Staten Island (St.George), and will be visible from all over New York. The cabins are 36, each with a capacity of 40 people. Each ride will last about 38 minutes and will guarantee to a maximum of 1440 people at once incomparable views over the harbor of New York, the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. The client company's implementation and will manage, New York Wheel LLC, expects 30,000 visitors per day for a total of 4 million a year.

Mammoet will handle the engineering design of the lifting procedures, supply the necessary components from suppliers all over the world and of the wheel construction, for a total of 10,000 tons of steel. Mammoet is not new to this type of orders. Among the successes are, among the London Eye in 1999, the lifting and placement of the Unilever headquarters in a single one-piece above the existing plant in Rotterdam society, the construction of the Dubai metro transport system between 2006 and 2008 and lifting and installation in one piece of the parable of the national radio telescope in Sardinia in 2010.

New York Wheel Project on Staten Island Also Bringing New Activity to Brooklyn Waterfront

Quote:
Construction of the New York Wheel on Staten Island is well underway, but the project also is bringing new activity to the Brooklyn waterfront. NY1's Amanda Farinacci filed the following report.
Wondering what it takes to build a 630-foot observation wheel? A lot of heavy machinery.

A crane (Liebherr LR 11350, max. load capacity 2,976,000 lbs / 1,350 t - Mammoet) is now sitting, in parts, at the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal. In just a few short weeks, it'll be delivered to Staten Island's north shore, and assembled to a height of 465 feet, to help build the world's tallest observation wheel.

"I'm pretty much in awe everyday of how big this is," said Rich Marin of the New York Wheel.

The South Brooklyn terminal has been mostly vacant for more than a decade, but the crane's delivery last month marked the first of many shipments for the wheel project.

The wheel’s developers have signed an agreement to use the terminal for as long as construction takes, at least the next two years.

"We're able to help Brooklyn in terms of a long-dormant facility that's now getting active marine utilization, with all our ships coming in over there," Marin said.
The wheel parts and equipment are being built around the world and will be shipped to the marine terminal, where they will be stored until the Staten Island site is ready for them. They'll be delivered using a temporary jetty.

Since a so-called "big pour" of concrete took place earlier this summer, construction has accelerated. And while officials with the wheel say the project is on track to be completed by the end of next year, it likely won't open then.
"There's a lot of testing and commissioning work that has to be done, so we probably won't have our grand opening until the beginning of 18," Marin said.

They may not look like much now, but fenced-off sections mark the spots where the wheel's legs will eventually rise.
"There's about a whole building's worth of steel below each of those legs because of all of structure that's in the foundation," Marin said.

The legs are expected to arrive in October, and the body of the wheel is expected to rise early next year. Meanwhile, the long-awaited parking garage is expected to open sometime this month.

The pedestals that the legs will bolt to are suppose to be here any day from Montreal. Legs will be here October 1st. They are coming on the Palabora from BBC Chartering. Just today (9/20/16) they passed through the port of Gibraltar. I could only assume they will be delivered directly to the site? Instead of to SBMT to then be loaded on a boat or barge, then to the site? The :R 1300 that was at the parking garage was taken down today.

A LR 11350 is at SBMT along with a LR 1600 and LR 1300

MAMMOET SUCCESSFULLY DELIVERS LEGS OF NEW YORK WHEEL
Quote:
On 3.X.2016, Mammoet successfully concluded the transportation of the four legs (4x 264 tons) of the New York Wheel. The legs were fabricated in Italy by manufacturer "Walter Tosto" and arrived safely at South Brooklyn Marine Terminal on Monday. The New York Wheel, an initiative of the New York Wheel Company, is being constructed near the northern tip of Staten Island, about 35 meters from the shores of New York Harbor. Once construction has been completed, it will be the world’s tallest observation wheel at 192 m.

ARRIVAL OF THE FIRST NEW YORK WHEEL COMPONENTS MARKS ANOTHER IMPORTANT MILESTONE IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE LARGEST OBSERVATION WHEEL IN THE WORLD
Quote:
Milestone
Quote:
The arrival of the legs - a milestone in the construction project - was marked with a celebration. They are the first New York wheel components to arrive that will be installed above ground. Included amongst the guests were Rich Marin, President of the New York Wheel Company, Maria Torres-Springer, President, NYC Economic Development Corp and several city council members.
Quote:
The legs
Quote:
The shipment that arrived on Monday consists of four legs, which each weigh more than 500 tons. They are 5.4 meters (18-feet) wide and will be 83 meters (275 feet) tall when erected. Each leg is made up of two parts, of 42 and 41 meters respectively. Once installed, the legs will provide support for the wheel and will be topped with a brace hub and spindle.
Quote:
Wheel construction
Quote:
The construction and transport of the wheel components will be coordinated by Mammoet USA. Mammoet USA will engineer the multiple erection procedures, procure all the necessary parts from all over the world and construct the entire wheel. The legs will be installed using Mammoet cranes and Mammoet Self Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs). In total the company will be erecting 10,000 tons of steel.
Quote:
Joint venture
Quote:
Mammoet Starneth LLC is responsible for Engineering, Procurement and Construction of the New York Wheel. Mammoet have formed a joint venture with Starneth LLC, a Dutch engineering company specialized in the design and construction of giant observation wheels and structures.

I made a thread for the Wheel in the Highrises section and quoted the last two posts here, I think the Wheel kind of gets lost in this thread/section and many users don't even seem to know about it.
