Great Neck officials require Millbrook Court developer to provide LIRR shuttle service

When Great Neck officials approved Freeport-based Northshore Millbrook’s plan to demolish part of its apartment complex Millbrook Court to make way for three new buildings, they did so with one condition: that the developer must provide a shuttle from the complex to the LIRR station. The idea is to offset the potential influx of new residents and additional cars on the road. The agreement stipulates that developer has to offer the shuttle for three years, but can stop the service after that if ridership is below 35 people per day. Town officials will ask future developers to follow similar plans, according to Newsday. Northshore’s project would demolish one building and parts of two others before building two four-story buildings and one three story building, bringing the total number of units in the complex up to 186. [Newsday]
