The Suffolk County legislature approved an agreement to redevelop 86 acres of municipally-owned property near Ronkonkoma’s LIRR station, Long Island Business News reported. Jones Lang LaSalle, which heads the development team, hopes to bring entertainment, hospitality and medical facilities into an area dominated by commuter parking right now. Ronkonkoma Vision Project, Cameron Engineering, Crawford Architects and Spectra are all part of the development team, whose initial pitch came in at a cost of $1 billion. They have eight months to come up with a plan and fulfill all the necessary due diligence. The project is part of the broader effort to redevelop the area that includes a Tritec Real Estate mixed-use project, which includes 1,450 residential units, 195,000 square feet of retail and another 360,000 square feet of offices. [LIBN]
