In 1998 the south-end of the island underwent a systemic change. Construction on nine luxury high-rise buildings began attracting many Manhattan buyers to redirect their choice of neighbourhood. Not only did these luxury high-rise buildings attract an influx of buyers and renters, a new commercial presence was in full swing allowing such retailers as Duane Reade, Starbucks, a pizza place and even a sushi restaurant. With the Island's close proximity to the United Nations, a very large number of UN staff and diplomats reside on the Island. The Island is very accommodating to UN staff seeking UN Housing.
