Nassau County - The City of Glen Cove Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed RXR Glen Isle Mixed-Use Waterfront Development. A public hearing on the Final EIS will be held on September 20, 2011 at 8:00 p.m. at the City Hall, Council Chambers, 9 Glen Street, Glen Cove, NY 11542.

The action involves a proposal by RXR Glen Isle Partners, LLC, pursuant to a Land Disposition Agreement with the City of Glen Cove Industrial Development Agency and Community Development Agency, to construct a mixed-use waterfront development encompassing 56 acres on the north side of Glen Cove Creek. The proposed action would encompass 860 dwellings in a variety of mid-rise condominium, rental and townhouse buildings, including 86 workforce housing units, a 250 suite luxury hotel and associated spa/conference center, a 50,000 square foot office building, and 25,000 square feet of space for retail, cultural and restaurant uses. The project is proposed to be constructed in various phases.

A new open space network is also proposed, which would provide for a continuous esplanade and open space ribbon along the entire length of the north side of Glen Cove Creek. The open space network would connect the project site to Glen Cove's downtown. It would also expand the City's greenway, which includes Garvies Point Preserve and Morgan Park.
