"Along with the New York Wheel, Empire Outlets, and the New Stapleton Waterfront, Lighthouse Point is a key element of NYCEDC’s ongoing effort to transform the St. George waterfront into a dynamic civic hub that will drive economic growth, create thousands of jobs, support existing waterfront amenities, and provide new waterfront uses to the benefit of visitors and residents alike. Lighthouse Point is expected to create approximately 226 permanent jobs and over 400 construction jobs." Read more about this ongoing north-shore project here.
You're probably wondering what all those initials stand for, but come November 2017 we're sure that MRKTPL (or the Marketplace at Empire Outlets) will be as recognizable as SOHO. BFC Partners announced today that the creative team behind the popular Gansevoort Market will bring this artisanal food hall concept to Staten Island, showcasing the best local and international purveyors in a relaxed and elegant environment.
According to their press release, "in a nod to the borough's roots as a hub for trade and commerce and the marketplaces of those times, the industrial-inspired MRKTPL will tie together the history of the New York Harbor with modern communal spaces to eat and gather. With over 12,000-square feet and another 3,000 square feet of outdoor dining MRKTPL will be curated through a lifestyle process, dedicated to fitting in with the local community, giving out-of-towners an authentic New York feel."
All this talk about food is making us hungry, time for lunch, we'll catch up with you soon.
