Saladino, Officials Break Ground for $111 Million Revitalization Project in Downtown Hicksville

Fulfilling his pledge to revitalize the downtown Hicksville area near the Long Island Rail Road Station, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino today joined with State, County and Town officials in breaking ground for a mixed-use development project at 99 Newbridge Road, consisting of 189 new residential units along with retail and restaurant space below. Earlier this year, the Town of Oyster Bay Planning Advisory Board cleared the way for this project, known as Alpine Residential Development, to proceed.


“A renaissance is coming to the Hicksville community thanks to this $111 million investment by Alpine Residential Development. Together, we’re moving forward with private sector developments and public works enhancements that transform the Hicksville business district into a vibrant downtown that millennials, families and empty-nesters desire – with housing, restaurants and office space near public transportation,” said Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino. “My administration is committed to improving the quality of life in our communities by revitalizing downtowns, improving local parks, and keeping property taxes down. Today’s ground breaking is only the start of great things to come in downtown Hicksville.”


Hicksville’s downtown is undergoing a renaissance thanks to the vision of the Saladino administration and a $10 million State award for downtown revitalization.  Future projects will support increased access to transportation, improved walkability, and 500 new housing opportunities. These projects, along with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s $132 million investment in the Hicksville railroad station, will continue to transform Hicksville into a vibrant downtown for downsizers, empty nesters, senior citizens and what millennials asked for and what will keep them here on Long Island.


In 2020, the first completed project in downtown Hicksville’s renaissance was unveiled at 35 Broadway, a vacant office building that was transformed by G2D Development Group into 18 new housing opportunities and a work-smart office-sharing space. In 2024, the Town will break ground for four additional projects, including a mixed-use development at 76, 80-82 North Broadway. This project, known as Fieldstone at North Broadway, consists of 108 residential units with retail and restaurant space.


The Town of Oyster Bay will also break ground in 2024 with $10 million in public improvement projects that include public space for seasonal outdoor activities – such as concerts, vendors; safer pedestrian access to the Long Island Rail Road station; and beautification of Broadway business district. This Winter, the Town anticipates hosting public meetings to obtain community feedback on these planned improvements. The Town has been working with Hicksville Chamber members and civic association leaders, along with Vision Long Island and New York State, for several years to build consensus around well-designed redevelopment that meets the needs of local residents and the downtown area.
