Low Income Housing Coming to Glen Cove


by Nolan Cleary

Glen Cove Mayor Tim Tenke (D) announced the first major new low-income public housing project that will be built in Glen Cove in over a decade.

The project, which is set to cost $32.3 million, will feature 55 apartments in the proposal, and will be built at Garvies Point. The project will feature nine units specially build for individuals with disabilities, 40 units set aside for low income residents, and eight units set aside as “Section 8” subsidized housing.

The project will be located at 100 and 200 Dickson Street, and will consist of two four-story apartment buildings.

The project is being developed by Georgica Green Ventures, under its President David Gallo.

The majority of the project’s funding will come from New York State’s Homes and Community Renewal, according to a press release from Governor Andrew Cuomo. In addition, the investment firm Barings will make a $8.4 million investment into developing the project.

According to Nassau County Executive Laura Curran (D-Baldwin), the County will contribute $900,000 in public funds to the housing project.

“Residents will be able to enjoy acres of public amenities and waterfront access right in their backyard,” stated Tenke. “Units will remain affordable for decades to come.”
