After years of planning, work has begun on a $50 million mixed-use project in Roslyn.

JK Equities acquired the property in July 2018. After getting a $35.8 million construction loan from Provident Bank, the project was able to move forward.

Mojo Stumer Architects designed the development. The new space will add 54 rental apartments and 6,600 square feet of retail space to 281-301 Warner Ave. It will also be a short distance from the Roslyn LIRR station.

Previously, the village designated the area for commercial use. It only contained a strip mall with empty storefronts.

In a statement, Jerry Karlik, principal of JK Equities, shared his excitement.

“After gaining approval of our plans and working with our team, we are happy that this project, part of the Industrial Development Agency program and Brownfield Cleanup Program, will be delivering a new, walkable and transit-friendly development for this neighborhood that I’ve lived in and cherished for many years,” he said.

The 105,000-square-foot facility will offer 30 electric vehicle charging stations and parking for 130 vehicles. It will also reserve discounted workforce housing for a portion of the one- and two-bedroom flats.

Mark Stumer, founding principal of Mojo Stumer, said the building will have a highly distinct character and form. He cited its use of a dynamic material palette of wood, black brick and concrete-look porcelain.

“The result is a creatively designed and site-responsive piece of architecture,” he said. “[It] will be an exciting new landmark at this southern entry point to the Village of Roslyn.”

The Village of Roslyn’s Board of Trustees unanimously approved the proposal in March 2021. They determined that its construction will not have any adverse environmental effects.

Village officials supported the project for several reasons. This included its closeness to the LIRR, the addition of low-income housing and an increase in the village’s tax base.

The project is scheduled to be completed in early 2024.

  1. Great project! The construction industry is growing constantly and at a rapid pace, but one thing remains unchanged – construction projects require complex and optimal coordination of people and resources at the sites. The role of mobile applications in the construction industry is growing, as they more effectively allow you to track team work, process steps, deadlines, equipment and more.
