The Town of Smithtown has chosen Tritec Real Estate as master developer for a transit-oriented development plan for part of its downtown.

East Setauket-based Tritec was one of several development firms that responded to a request for qualifications that the town issued in the spring to “conduct a study and formulate a transit-oriented development (TOD) plan for the revitalization of a portion of downtown Smithtown.”

The town’s draft Comprehensive Plan released in 2019, recommended creating a TOD zone between the Long Island Rail Road tracks and Manor Road, bordered by Landing Avenue. It also recommended multifamily housing development on the north side of the tracks “to serve as a transition” between Smithtown’s downtown and the single-family residential neighborhood.

“We are incredibly excited about the opportunity to work on the continued revitalization of Smithtown’s Main Street,” said Chris Kelly, Tritec’s vice president of marketing. “Many Tritec employees live in the town and care deeply about the community. We will bring the same passion and energy that we have been able to bring to other Long Island downtowns, work closely with all of the stakeholders, help the town realize its vision, and generate investment and economic activity in the downtown.”
