Our signature projects are the core to our mission of enhancing Staten Island’s economy with projects such as the West Shore Light Rail that can propel the borough forward by providing a faster, reliable public transportation option into Manhattan. In addition, we are improving business on a more localized level through our neighborhood development projects.

The West Shore Light Rail (WSLR) could provide a reliable and attractive travel choice for Staten Island residents located in South Shore and Mid-Island communities. The WSLR would extend NJ TRANSIT’s Hudson-Bergen Light Rail system (HBLRT) over the Bayonne Bridge and into western and southern portions of Staten Island and connect to the Staten Island Railway service at the Richmond Valley Station.


SI Skyway is an urban reclamation project to create a world-class park on the abandoned North Shore railway.



In 2015, SIEDC proposed an aerial gondola system to connect Staten Island to the rest of the region and in 2016 hosted a global design competition for concepts and proposals. As a result of this work, and the selection of Leitner-Poma of America and their route between Staten Island and Bayonne, SIEDC is working with local elected officials and agencies to bring the project to fruition.
