This lot is part of the North Shore Industrial Business Zone (IBZ): https://www.nycedc.com/industry/industrial/nyc-industrial-business-zones. The IBZ program is intended to protect manufacturing businesses and jobs from the pressures of the residential and commercial real estate markets by creating zones in the outer boroughs where manufacturing is incentivized, commercial uses are limited, and residential rezoning is not allowed. These protections are not enshrined in law, however, and depend on the priorities of politicians for enforcement.

This lot is part of the Kill Van Kull Significant Maritime and Industrial Area (SMIA). SMIAs are intended to protect and encourage concentrated working waterfront uses, and are regulated by the NYC Waterfront Revitalization Program (WRP): http://www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/applicants/wrp/wrp-2.page?tab=3#collapse3

Most SMIAs are located in environmental justice communities and in storm surge zones, making places that are already overburdened by contamination especially vulnerable to more pollution due to climate change. The New York City Environmental Justice Alliance (NYC-EJA), through its Waterfront Justice Project, has successfully campaigned to update local regulations to address community resiliency and climate adaptation in SMIAs, and continues to research ways to build climate resilient working waterfronts.

This lot is part of the West Brighton Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA), designated in August 2016 as part of New York State's Brownfield Opportunity Area Program. The West Brighton BOA includes 120 acres along Richmond Terrace and Jersey Street on the North Shore waterfront of Staten Island. The West Brighton Community Local Development Corporation (WBCLDC) worked with the NYC Department of City Planning to develop the successful BOA proposal, which seeks to remediate historic industrial contamination, promote mixed-use development in historic neighborhood centers, strengthen the maritime industrial sector to create quality jobs, improve mobility through street and transit upgrades and greenway development, and increase public access to the waterfront.

North Shore Railway at Heritage Park
North Shore Railway at Heritage Park Photo credit: Nathan Kensinger In his photo essay on the abandoned North Shore Railway, Kensinger describes this section of the track: "The tracks next pass by Heritage Park, which opened in 2014 at the site of the old Blissenbach Marina. As one of the few waterfront parks along the North Shore, this would be a natural entry point to an elevated greenway."
