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.
