From the e-newsletter of the Committee To Save Mt. Manresa:

Don’t miss the latest report on our North Shore Watchlist…properties that have zoning issues, or historical sites at risk.     Don’t forget to sign our petition to Landmark St. Mary.  If you have a special connection to the church, please leave a comment about What St. Mary’s means to you. http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/landmark-st-mary-church?mailing_id=37146&source=s.icn.em.cr&r_by=237480
STATEN ISLAND REAL-TIME NEWS

Development concerns: 10 properties North Shore residents are keeping an eye on Updated March 12, 2017 
Lessons learned from Mount Manresa

Members of the Committee to Save Mount Manresa say they  learned a harsh lesson when Mount Manresa was sold to developers to build townhouses.

The organization has received feedback from other North Shore residents both at Community Board 1 meetings and at other forums, and has compiled a North Shore “watch list” for properties that could be ideal for developers.

“These are properties of concern — they have either historical significance or they are large properties that are not properly zoned,” said Barbara Sanchez of the Committee to Save Mount Manresa.

………..

Coast Guard in Rosebank

Located in Rosebank off Bay Street on 1 Anchor Place is the U.S. Coast Guard Station. While many think the Coast Guard will never move, some North Shore residents believe there’s no guarantee.

“City Planning says the Coast Guard isn’t planning to go anywhere….but that’s what everyone said about Mount Manresa….After Mount Manresa we are very sensitive to these large properties,” Sanchez said.

St. Mary’s Church

St. Mary’s Church in Rosebank is one of the oldest churches on Staten Island. “It’s a large part of Rosebank history,” Sanchez, noting that St. Mary’s Church is zoned R4, which means that the property could be sold to developers for any type of housing.

Many North Shore residents would like to see the church landmarked, as it is an architectural focal point in Rosebank, with its prominent tower visible for miles around.

Bayley Seton campus

The Salvation Army announced in March 2016 that its proposal for the Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, to be built on a portion of the old Bayley Seton Hospital that it purchased in 2009, was not financially viable.  Borough President James Oddo, who fought hard for the Kroc Center, has said his office plans to pursue constructing some other Salvation Army center on the property.

North Shore residents still express concern that the portion of the former hospital campus could be sold off to developers for large-scale housing.

Former Sun Chemical

The former Sun Chemical site in Rosebank, which closed its doors in January 2008, may become the site of future back-to-back attached townhouses, according to the Office of the Borough President.

According to Sun Chemical, the property is “under a sale agreement” with 2846 Partners LLC. The property will first have to be rezoned from manufacturing to residential. While the property was remediated to clean up toxic materials that had seeped into the ground over the decades the plant was in operation, Oddo and others in the community question whether it is still hazardous for homeowners.…

 The Armory’s 55,000 square foot drill hall, reminiscent of the original Grand Central Depot and the great train sheds of Europe, remains one of the largest unobstructed spaces of its kind in New York. A marvel of engineering in its time, it was designed by Regiment veteran and architect Charles W. Clinton, later a partner of Clinton & Russell, architects of the Apthorp Apartments and the famed, now demolished, Astor Hotel.
