Long Island Awarded $60 Million for Economic Development

January 4, 2013
By Stephanie West

Long Island was awarded $59.7 million for 86 projects in Nassau and Suffolk counties from New State.

Some of the winning projects include:
$2.15 million to expand the Brookhaven Rail Terminal in Yaphank to include construction of a 500,000 square foot refrigerated warehouse and a multi-modal rail freight facility to transport products on and off Long Island

$1 million to support the construction of an $80 million, 94,000 square foot Research Institute at Winthrop University Hospital in the Village of Mineola. The Institute will be a medical research and education facility that will focus on diabetes and obesity.

$1 million to support the construction of a sewage collection system for the Ronkonkoma Hub transit-oriented development. The system will connect the proposed mixed-use redevelopment project to a new sewage treatment plant being constructed by Suffolk County with Round One Regional Council funding. A second component in the Town of Islip involves the construction of a four lane access road of approximately 9,000 linear feet to a 60-acre undeveloped parcel at MacArthur Airport. This project is critical to the retention of the FAA Tracon Facility on Long Island and 800 jobs.

$1 million to construct a new Long Island Railroad station and pedestrian overpass, providing access to new commuter parking areas in Wyandanch

$500,000 for Nassau County to redevelop the 77-acre Nassau Hub area to include a new state-of-the-art indoor sports arena, minor league baseball park, retail, office and residential development

$500,000 to support a 30,000 square foot expansion of the Broad Hollow Bioscience Park on 38.5 acres at Farmingdale State College. The project will help meet a critical need for incubator space to accommodate spin-offs from Long Island research facilities and retain and create life sciences jobs.
