Gov. Kathy Hochul, local elected officials and business leaders joined executives of Tritec Real Estate Wednesday to hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the $256 million second phase of the Station Square redevelopment project at the Ronkonkoma Hub. 

Dubbed “Phase 2A,” the next portion in the effort to remake the area around the Ronkonkoma Long Island Rail Road station, will bring 388 apartments, 73,000 square feet of retail space and 15,590 square feet of office space in four mixed-use buildings on a 7.6-acre site on Hawkins Avenue. 

Site work on Phase 2A, which also includes the creation of a village green/town square, actually began this summer. 

Tritec completed the first phase of the Ronkonkoma Hub redevelopment, known as Alston Station Square. The initial phase brought 489 apartments in six buildings, which is now more than 90 percent leased. 

The rental portion of Phase 2A will bring 111 studios, 186 one-bedroom units, 59 two-bedroom units and 32 three-bedroom apartments, that will all be offered at yet-to-be-determined market rates. None of the Phase 2A apartments will be priced as workforce housing, though future phases at the Hub will likely include some affordable housing, according to a Tritec spokesperson. 

This portion of the project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2024. 

The entire $750 million Ronkonkoma Hub project will eventually transform 53 acres around the Ronkonkoma LIRR station into a mixed-use development with 1,450 apartments, and over 600,000
