STATEN ISLAND—The opening of sales at The Pointe, a new collection of one- and two-bedroom condominiums set on the North Shore of Staten Island, has piqued a high level of interest with a sale on the first day.

The new luxury building located at 155 Bay Street, overlooking the St. George waterfront and Manhattan skyline, has officially opened to the public with 57 residences, water views, accessible outdoor space and a convenient location just steps from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal and train service.

The one- and two-bedroom homes range in size from 962 to 1,255 sq. ft., and are priced from the $300,000s. Immediate occupancy is available.

The opening of The Pointe also represents a renewed interest and reinvestment in St. George, known as the “gateway” to Staten Island, as well as the extended Staten Island North Shore waterfront. Area residents already enjoy a host of cultural and recreational attractions, including the Alice Austen House Museum; the St. George Theater and Staten Island Institute of Arts & Sciences (SIIAS); Richmond County Bank Ballpark, a waterfront stadium and home to the New York Yankees’ class-A minor league team; the St. George Historic District; Snug Harbor, a cultural center set within an 83-acre National Historic Landmark district; the Staten Island Children's Museum and Staten Island Botanical Garden.
