“Elected officials and civic leaders are slated to join developers next week to cut the ribbon on a 90-unit affordable rental complex in Copiague.
Developed by Community Development Corporation of Long Island and Rochester, N.Y.-based Conifer Realty, the two-building Copiague Commons complex is a mix of 56 one- and 34 two-bedroom apartments for families with a variety of incomes ranging from 60 percent to a maximum of 100 percent of the area median income.
The Town of Babylon held a lottery in April for hundreds of eligible prospective renters vying for the affordable units. Rents at Copiague Commons will range from $1,193 to $1,450 for the one-bedroom apartments and from $1,431 to $1,850 for the two-bedroom apartments.
The $33.5 million transit-oriented development project was built on a former industrial site on Railroad Avenue.”
