Officials Break Ground On Ronkonkoma Hub Phase 2 Project
RONKONKOMA, NY — Phase Two of the $700 million state-of-the-art Ronkonkoma Hub, known as Station Square, a major mixed-use development with housing, as well as retail and office space at the Long Island Rail Road station, began with a groundbreaking on Wednesday, Gov. Kathy Hochul said.
The $256 million project will include 388 housing units, 73,000-square-feet of commercial space, 15,500-square-feet of office space, and over 1,200 parking spaces, according to a news release from Hochul's office. The project is supported with a $50 million capital grant from Empire State Development, as part of the Transformative Investment Program funding that was allocated to Long Island in the 2017 state budget. The entity previously provided $5 million, which was recommended by the Long Island Regional Economic Development Council, to support a new sewage treatment plant and sewer infrastructure improvements.
