Nearly 500 million dollars project are underway after Sandy, which includes an outlet mall and hotel.

According to the New York Post, but developers have not slowed it or scaled it back.

Supporters said that Staten Island needs the boost now more than ever.

Some residents have asked whether it makes sense to push ahead with a tourist attraction, set partly in a flood zone, before officials take a comprehensive look at how to build smarter after Sandy.

Wheel developer Richard Marin said that the project stands to provide a one-of-a-kind boon that Staten Island 'would have no other way of getting right now', the report added.
