The Garvies Point Waterfront Redevelopment will be a Smart Growth, mixed-use community located along the shores of Hempstead Harbor in Glen Cove and was designated a Project of Regional Significance by the LIRPC.
The development will re-invent the Glen Cove waterfront and reclaim a former brownfield site, creating a new mixed-use community, including public open space for residents and visitors to enjoy.
The redevelopment will transform what was once a barren and polluted 56-acre superfund site into a new waterfront community. Plans call for 1,110 residential units (110 units are a combination of rental and condominiums and 105 units will be set aside for affordable housing), 50,000 square feet of commercial office space, and 25,000 square feet of retail, restaurant, and cultural space. It will have access to Glen Cove’s Ferry Terminal and future commuter ferry service to New York City.
The plan also calls for 28 acres of open public space to include an extensive waterfront esplanade, marinas, parks, playgrounds, waterfront recreational activities, open green spaces and significant walkways and connecting trails to the Garvies Point Preserve and Pratt Park.
It is expected that new tax revenues, spending, investment and jobs will benefit the local economy.
