City taking ideas for Staten Island's Farm Colony
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.  --- The city's Economic Development Corporation is trying once again to entice developers to consider the old Farm Colony in Sea View -- this time hoping a more open-ended approach will lure them in.
"This is no-commitments," said City Councilman James Oddo (R-Mid-Island/Brooklyn), who has long advocated development of the site. "This is just to measure, engage, and see if anyone has any creative ideas."
The EDC is issuing a "request for expression of interest" for the 46-acre site on Brielle Avenue today. The agency is looking for "creative proposals that will consider a broad range of possible uses for the site, in order to transform the area in a way that will complement and enhance the surrounding community."
