Josif A LLC – Staten Island Retail Development – NYC Council ULURP Approval
Successfully secured New York City Council approval for Josif A LLC’s 226,000 square-foot retail development in the Mariner’s Harbor section of Staten Island. Herrick's Land Use and Zoning Group navigated a multi-year public and environmental review process which included interacting with local council member Deborah Rose, as well as the chairs of the City Council’s Zoning Subcommittee, Donovan Richards, and its Land Use Committee, David Greenfield; and culminated in the City Council’s approval of the project’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedures (ULURP) application. The large retail development will be anchored by a 90,000 square-foot BJ’s Wholesale Club, and will include other retail buildings, including a supermarket and gas station. The project will result in the creation of 800 to 1,000 construction jobs, and approximately 440 permanent jobs in the community.
