Long Island - Baldwin

Long Island - Baldwin


Baldwin was selected as the winner of the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) award in the Long Island region.

Located in the Town of Hempstead, Baldwin’s targeted area for DRI investment centers on the commercial corridor of Grand Avenue with its proximity to the Baldwin Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) station and the surrounding cluster of retail, commercial, institutional, and public recreation uses. The Town has embarked on a strategic, holistic approach to revitalizing downtown Baldwin with innovative zoning and design guidelines geared towards building a vibrant center of economic activity and priming the area for investment. Leveraging this effort as a framework for future development, the DRI award will advance the community’s vision for a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use downtown centered on an active LIRR station.
