Deadline extended again for Nassau Hub development proposals

After receiving a handful of responses, Nassau County officials have again pushed a deadline for developers to submit proposals for the Nassau Hub Innovation District, a 70-acre parking lot near the Coliseum. The deadline had been July 20, but was then extended to Aug. 3 and now Aug. 17. Officials said the extension was to “keep the door open” for prospective developers. Some of the proposals already submitted include a mixed-use office campus with restaurants and multifamily housing. While some ideas already put forward fall within the current zoning for housing in the area, which allows for 500 residential units, others are pushing for zoning changes allowing for more units, in order to make the project viable. [LIBN]
