Construction Begins on New Retail Plaza in Seaford

Five storefronts including one pharmacy planned for property on 4008 Jerusalem Ave.

Construction has commenced on a new retail plaza in Seaford.

The one-story building planned for 4008 Jerusalem Ave. will include five storefronts including a pharmacy, according to Hempstead Town Press Secretary Susan Trenkle-Pokalsky. The property, which was formerly home to a gas station, is located at the corner of Washington Avenue next to a new Pironi Homes development. 

The developer for the retail project, Syosset-based ANA Realty, did not return calls seeking comment on what businesses were planned at the site or an estimated completion date. ANA Realty received a variance from the Town of Hempstead Board of Zoning Appeals on March 21 for off-street parking. A construction permit permit was issued to ANA Realty on Aug. 16. 

Trenkle-Pokalsky said among the conditions from the zoning board's approval was that no cabaret, bars, or taverns be permitted on the site. In addition to the five businesses, the property will also include a parking lot.

Chris, and just where does the money come from that PAYs for those taxes- Money does WALK right out of one persons pocket into ANOTHER persons pocket - its called commerce! More then likely the owners of these new business's will not be residents who would then REINVEST their profits in other local business in the area on a daily basis . BTW who is to say those store owners wont apply for Pilots?

Argumentative. Assumes facts not in evidence.

@Peter - I 200% agree with you. Also, think about those brand new $750K houses {OVERPRICED} that have been built. I'm sure they're not happy about this. I do question though what the allowed footing(s) are for this piece of property. Is it listed as (1) bit lot or is it several lots. That's important. I believe this info is available for free from the Nassau County Buildings Dept. under the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) - If they are building too close or too much in each footprint, this can be stopped, or at least delayed. I do like that at least the Town said, NO cabaret's, bars, etc... HMMMMM - well worth looking into.

Another pharmacy? There are already so many in the area.... And FOUR other stores? The lot isn't big enough for that many stores with parking. This is ridiculous. They should build a gazebo in the center of the lot and call it a day. Maybe plant some trees too. What's going on here??
