Amendola Property Proposed Development
2310 Grand Avenue
Early in 2017, the developer who bought the former Amendola Fence property proposed building a strip mall anchored by a laundromat on the property. The BCA Executive Committee opposed this plan and prepared to testify to that effect at the Hempstead Town Board of Appeals. Facing community pushback, the developer met with the Executive Committee and subsequently revised the plan to be a mixed use structure, with seven commercial spaces on the first floor and a total of twenty rental apartments on two floors above. The building would be closer to the street instead of being set back in mall style. Parking would be on the side and in back of the building.
The developer updated the vision for the property in October 2020. To review the developer's schematics for the Amendola development, click the image below.
This sort of development is more in line with the kind of housing that Nassau County needs: smaller rental units that are within the financial reach of young singles or couples who are often priced out of the county's heated real estate market.
