Steel Equities plans 90-acre industrial park for Central Islip

June 25, 2018 01:17PM

Bethpage-based Steel Equities hopes to build an industrial park on a vacant 90-acre plot that currently belongs to the New York Institute of Technology in Central Islip, Long Island Business News reported. The developer wants to construct 10 buildings on the property, though more details haven’t been disclosed. Executives with the company have already met with civic groups and the Central Islip Fire Department to get community input. Many of the 20 brick buildings currently on the property will likely have to be demolished under the plan. The property would also have to be rezoned. NYIT bought the site in 1984 but hasn’t held full classes there since 2005. The school has recently been selling off parts of the property. [LIBN]
