Northfield Community LDC, with support from the NYC Department of Small Business Services, is showcasing a series of “move-in-ready” retail storefronts along the Port Richmond commercial corridor.
With presentations by the College of Staten Island Small Business Development Center and NYC Department of City Planning, perspective business owners will have an opportunity to hear about the resources and support both agencies have to offer. At the event, the NYC Department of City Planning will discuss revitalization recommendations developed under our Brownfield Opportunity Area initiative.
Businesses located in Port Richmond have the advantage of working with established organizations to help them grow and thrive. “Northfield Community LDC has provided much support to the Port Richmond Board of Trade over the past three decades and we welcome all those interested in locating their business here to attend this exciting showcase event. The Port Richmond Avenue commercial district has served many generations of Staten Island residents and we continue to nurture its current potential”, described Joan Catalano, Northfield Community LDC Executive Director.
Port Richmond commercial corridor, once known as the “Fifth Avenue of Staten Island”, is destined for a renaissance. We welcome entrepreneurs, local property owners, and real estate industry professionals to join us on our tour.
The event’s program is designed to attract new and diverse businesses to the neighborhood by simplifying entrepreneur’s search for retail space and providing property owners with a means of advertising their available commercial spaces. With the recent approval of the Ferris Wheel, the Empire Outlets, combined with the Staten Island Yankee Stadium, momentum is building for development of the North Shore waterfront. With views of the waterfront and the Bayonne Bridge, the Port Richmond Corridor is in an area rich in history. We are on the cusp of something extraordinary. With visions of artist galleries, coffee houses, restaurants, and stores along the hub, Port Richmond will someday be the go to place for cultural diversity.
