STATEN ISLAND, N.Y,– Modern, oversized residences with upscale finishes and appointments, an elaborate amenity offering, spectacular panoramic views, and a location within walking distance of the Staten Island Ferry and within close proximity to downtown Manhattan continue to attract buyers to The Accolade at the St. George waterfront.
More than 50% of the new luxury condominium building’s 101 residences have now been sold, with the first buyers scheduled to start moving in this fall.
“The Accolade features exceptional new homes and an amenity-rich, waterfront lifestyle that simply hasn’t been available in Staten Island before now,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, the company who was retained by Meadow Partners to market and sell The Accolade. “That opportunity alone has been enough to attract buyers, but they’re also embracing the vision of a larger north shore destination teeming with new shops, restaurants, recreation and hospitality. The success of the Accolade provides further proof that the dream for this untapped north shore waterfront is moving closer to a reality.”
Meadow Partners recently completed the extensive array of private amenities at The Accolade, revealing yet another tangible sign of the luxury condominium’s upscale lifestyle offering which is unrivaled in the Staten Island marketplace.
The newly-finished amenities include a marble-adorned attended lobby, expansive residents-only lounge featuring a bar, seating area, poker, Ping-Pong, foosball and pool tables; a private conference room, golf simulator, children’s playroom, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The private amenities complement the building’s exceptional residences and waterfront location within the gated Bay Street Landing community in Staten Island’s St. George neighborhood.
Framed by spectacular panoramic views of the New York Harbor, Manhattan skyline and Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, The Accolade features a striking design that is beautifully integrated into the collection of architecturally-significant loft buildings within Bay Street Landing, which for years has attracted a mix of professionals, couples, families and empty-nesters. The gated community is set on 11 park-like acres and features such shared amenities as tennis courts, BBQ pits, children’s playground, on-site parking, dog run, professionally landscaped green spaces and 24-hour roving security.
Modern residences with expansive living spaces and upscale finishes and appointments have been designed for The Accolade to appeal to a variety of discerning buyers, with studios-to-three-bedroom floor plans ranging from 772 to 2,479 square-feet – including dramatic duplex Penthouse residences. Priced from $350,000 to over $1.2 million, the homes feature soaring ceiling heights, hardwood flooring, and kitchens with GE stainless steel appliances, Ceaserstone countertops with glass mosaic tile backsplashes, custom wood cabinets and Kohler fixtures. Baths are adorned with high-end stone floors and walls, custom vanity with marble top; a full-size tub and shower, custom vanities and Kohler and Hansgrohe fixtures.
“Almost every home offers private outdoor space and oversized windows, while many residences feature magnificent views that stretch from the Manhattan skyline to the Verrazano Bridge,” Ms. Urgo points out.
Other prominent projects poised to transform the underutilized waterfront into a premier residential and lifestyle destination include a one-million-square-foot mixed-use retail hub adjacent to the ferry, the 625-foot-tall New York Wheel, and the redevelopment of a three-acre pier into new retail, dining, hospitality and residential uses. And in nearby Stapleton, work is underway to redevelop the former Navy Homeport site into 30,000 square feet of street-level shops and restaurants which will combine with a new public plaza and a six-acre waterfront esplanade.
