Developers abandon Baldwin redevelopment project for the second time

Engel Burman Group and Basser-Kaufman have left a six-acre development project again, seemingly because they weren’t able to acquire Baldwin properties needed for the effort, Long Island Business News reported. The team was picked in 2006 to remake a blighted area of the town. At the time, they walked away when they were unable to get some of the necessary properties. They were picked again in September 2016 and have seemingly run into the same problem as before. Hempsead officials said the developers were asking “extreme” tax breaks and had asked the Hempstead Industrial Development Agency to claim the properties through eminent domain. If the plan did go through, it would bring apartments, retail and mixed-use buildings to the area around the town’s LIRR station. [LIBN]
