Demolition underway to make room for West Main Street apartment building

Demolition is underway at the former L.I. Science Center site on West Main Street. 

The structure is being razed to make way for a new mixed-use apartment building to be built by Conifer Realty. Peconic Crossing is a 45-unit affordable rental complex, which will be managed by Community Development Corporation of Long Island. See prior story.

The five-story apartment building planned by Conifer will offer rent-controlled apartments to tenants who meet income limits set forth by the N.Y. State Homes and Community Renewal agency which has granted low-income tax credits to investors in the project.

Maximum rents will be based on affordability scales tied to median household incomes in Suffolk County, published by the U.S. Census Bureau.
