Stony Brook Heritage Graduate Housing Community
The Stony Brook Heritage Graduate Housing Community will be a beautiful addition to Stony Brook that will address a need for housing for a valued regional resource and at the same time, help to alleviate various housing concerns. The new Housing Community is architecturally designed to complement the historic community, while simultaneously providing a style of housing that graduate, post-doctoral and health professionals desire.
Why the Proposed Community will be a Positive Redevelopment for Stony Brook, the University and the Future Residents:
- Redeveloping the site for Stony Brook graduate and post-doctoral housing will support a valued regional resource and fill a major need.
- Access to housing for graduate, post- doctoral, and health professionals will help to alleviate the contentious housing issues that currently exist in the surrounding community.
- The site is located between NYS Route 25A and the LIRR tracks, making it undesirable for single-family homes.
- Beautiful housing that features a walkable area and a community center for individuals to gather is the preferred style of housing for today’s young professionals.
- Schedules for graduate students, health professionals and research fellows vary greatly, so there will not be a major vehicle outflow or inflow at traditional peak travel hours.
- The site currently does not contribute any property taxes. The new development will be tax positive.
Benefits of the Proposed Stony Brook Heritage Graduate Housing Community:
- Housing is clustered throughout the property on already developed areas to create open space.
- The new Housing Community will be within walking distance of the Stony Brook Advanced Energy Center Campus.
- The site is located on NYS Route 25A and will result in little or no impact on local streets.
- The site is currently occupied by large three-story buildings.
- The proposed architecture will be a beautiful complement to the existing community in a desirable, walkable residential setting.
- There will be a community center for small gatherings of residents to utilize.
