Lighthouse Point's Phase 2 To Include Westin Hotel Through Partnership with Starwood
Triangle Equities has partnered with Barry Sternlicht’s Starwood Hotel & Resorts to bring a 190k SF, 175-room Westin hotel tower (pictured) to Lighthouse Point, Triangle’s $231M mixed-use project in St. George on Staten Island.
Slated to open in 2019, the Westin Staten Island will have 15k SF of meeting, conference and event space, unobstructed views and will be the first full-service, upscale hotel on the Staten Island waterfront.
The hotel's part of Lighthouse Point’s Phase 2, which will bring retail, restaurants and entertainment space while rehabbing and repurposing the existing, historic structures. One of the site's underground vaults, for example, will be incorporated into the Westin’s amenity space.
The Point’s (pictured) first phase includes 65k SF of retail and office space, a 12-story residential tower with 115 units (20% of which are affordable for New Yorkers earning 60% of the AMI), a 300-space parking garage, and an acre-long waterfront open space that can be used for concerts, art exhibits and food festivals.
The meeting and conference spaces will be used by shared-workspace giant and anchor tenant Regus, which is taking 30k SF of the 65k SF retail and office space. There’ll also be a celebrity chef-led restaurant.
Perkins Eastman principal and executive director Shawn Basler—the project’s architect—said the hotel’s design will mesh both the Island’s historic structure and a sleek glass, stone and steel design, serving as a beacon along the Staten Island waterfront, which is being revitalized and economically catalyzed by the New York Wheel and Empire Outlets.
