The cosmetics giant Estée Lauder made it official: the firm will erect a $14.5 million engineering center in Melville, rather than other sites it had been weighing in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Newsday reported. The company recently signed a 10-year lease for the facility at 65 Maxess Road, near its already sprawling campus. The details of the lease weren’t immediately released. The building, which was once a warehouse for the United States Postal Service, will house a 51,580-square-foot research center. The building will become operational by Dec. 31. Suffolk County officials have already offered the company $895,000 in tax breaks over 10 years. The project also received $2.2 million in state tax credits from the Empire State Development Corp. [Newsday]
