A proposal to build new offices and create community space in the building will be discussed Wednesday at the last in-person community meeting for the Huntington Station Downtown Revitalization Initiative.
Residents have until Nov. 3 to provide feedback on the newest proposal, linked here:
Attorney Xavier Palacios, who owns the property at 1399 New York Ave., is negotiating to buy the building next door, and redevelop both lots into a three-story mixed-use building with a community facility on first floor. His law offices would occupy the second floor in the front of the building with two apartments behind them, and four of what Palacios described as “truly affordable” apartment units on the third floor.
The meeting is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. at St. Hugh’s Church, 21 East Ninth St., Huntington Station.
