The City of New York wanted to build a minor league baseball stadium on the north shore of Staten Island.  The project team had concerns that included the effects of wind on pedestrian comfort and on the games played at the three-level, 6,500-seat baseball stadium.  SGH evaluated the feasibility of locating the along the waterfront and provided structural and geotechnical engineering services for the project built on the site of a former rail yard with inactive rail lines.
