Making a Statement in Staten Island
Langan supporting a resurging borough
The tide has officially turned in Staten Island. Long in the shadow of Manhattan, Staten Island is revamping its image with large-scale developments along the waterfront and throughout its neighborhoods. While the projects cover an array of market sectors – industrial, mixed-use, commercial, entertainment – one common denominator is Langan.
The firm is providing its integrated engineering and environmental services on developments that are transforming the island, such as revitalizing the North Shore through mixed-use developments like Lighthouse Point; expanding the industrial sector with Matrix Global Logistics Park; improving infrastructure with the Goethals Bridge Replacement; enhancing shopping and dining options at the Staten Island Mall and Hylan Plaza; and transforming a former landfill into the 2,200-acre Freshkills Park.
“For years Staten Island was an untapped market, despite its proximity to Manhattan,” said Bryan Waisnor, Principal and one of several firm leaders managing major projects on Staten Island. “What’s unique about Staten Island is that the growth is not pegged to a single type of development. We are engaged with a variety of clients developing in different sectors, which shows that the island truly is becoming a live, work, play destination.”
Indeed, the waterfront is brimming with construction, neighborhoods are evolving, and underutilized land is now home to large distribution centers. Such diverse activity means that the future for Staten Island looks bright …bright enough to cast its own shadow.
