23 years after County acquisition of crumbling and hazardous property at 175 Rogers Ave, redevelopment of superfund site set to advance


INWOOD, NY – Nassau County Executive Laura Curran today announced that a long-abandoned County building at 175 Rogers Avenue has been successfully demolished and the site cleared.

“In October I promised the Inwood community a swift demolition, and we have delivered,” said County Executive Curran. “Now the process will move forward with the hiring of a development team to do site remediation and redevelopment, so the property can be put to good use and returned to the tax rolls. ”

The property had formerly been the site of Rockaway Metal Products, but had been abandoned for 28 years. The site was later declared a “Superfund Site” by the EPA due to the presence of hazardous materials.

Photos attached show the dramatic clearing.

The County is now turning to the cleanup and redevelopment of the site, which will entail a multi-step process. After a full County Request for Proposals, a notice of award has been issued to a company with experience redeveloping brownfield sites. Upon successful completion of contract negotiations with the proposed developer, the resulting contract would be subject to review and approval by the Nassau County Legislature.
