Benefits

The Cornerstone Waterfront at Patchogue will build on Patchogue Village’s downtown revitalization and bring significant community benefits for years to come. These benefits include:

Promotes Commerce

  • Creating residences close to popular shops and eateries supports economic and business growth downtown.
  • Added foot traffic means more customers for local businesses to attract.

The Best Alternative

  • Transforming an industrial site to a residential use designed to evoke an elevated coastal design reflects the best use of the privately-owned property.
  • Other uses allowed as of right that could be built there today include: a warehouse with trucking, restaurant or industrial manufacturing.

Creates Jobs

  • 2 permanent jobs
  • 43 construction jobs

Creates Housing Variety

  • Today’s young professional and emptynesters often seek apartment-style living to be closer to downtown amenities without the maintenance of a single family home.
  • This proposal makes it easier to do just that without having to relocate out of Patchogue Village.

Bolsters Home Values

  • Builds on vibrancy and successful redevelopment in the Village, which in the 1990s had a vacancy rate of 50-60%
  • Property values have been strengthened by redevelopment projects like this, which have made Patchogue Village such a hub of activity and desirable place to live

Creates A Public Amenity

  • Currently the site is private property—this proposal creates public access to the river.
  • Creates a public promenade area lined by brick pavers, benches and lighting to enhance visual access.

Supports The Tax Base

  • Significant new revenue generated to support the local tax base year 1 the building is open and escalating from there.
  • That's a 500% increase for the tax base over the amount the property currently generates.
  • Additional revenue supports local schools, infrastructure and services.
