Please join us for a discussion of this unique, large-scale project, with the Engel Burman Group. Learn about Engel Burman’s plan to bring 438 rental and for-sale residences to the 6-acre waterfront parcel located between Long Beach Boulevard and Riverside Boulevard; Engel Burman’s experience navigating Long Island’s permitting process; the IDA incentive package that allowed project to proceed; the future of the Superblock project and what it means for the region.
