Redevelopment Eyed for Merrick Road Gas Station Property

Breslin Realty looking to lease land occupied by Millennium Gas into a new retail development for Seaford.

A Long Island developer is hoping to transform a gas station on Merrick Road into a new retail development for the Seaford community. 

Garden City-based Breslin Realty is working toward leasing a 1.1-acre property on Merrick Road in Seaford across the street from . The land on 4030 Merrick Road is currently occupied by with a vacant parking lot adjacent to the property.

Judy Pascucci, a broker at Breslin, said there have been interested parties looking to store vehicles on the property but retail space is what is preferred for the land. Milliennium remains open on a month-to-month lease but there are plans to ultimately close the gas station once a deal for new development can be reached. Pascucci said there is no timetable for redeveloping the parcel.    

“We want to do something that will work well with the community and be of service to the community,”  Pascucci said.

How about a Billy Dean's Showtime Cafe?

1.1 Acres is a decent amount of land. The concept of finding a use "that will be of service to the community" should be a very important consideration.

There is also an entrance/exit to the back side of this property on Washington Avenue, just south of the new Bethpage Federal Credit Union (between the 4th and 5th house on the east side of Washington Ave). It actually has a street name; "Tuthill Place". If you drive down the long driveway, you will see that there is a small home set back near the water that Breslin owns and rents to people. I wonder if they are going to knock that house down and close off the entrance/exit off of Washington Avenue in order to provide additional parking for this project. That would be a great idea.

Although I rented that home a long long time ago, it has got to be almost uninhabitable now since it was very run down back then. Knocking it down would be the best thing IMO.

not sure if it would be right for this property..but it would be nice to have a local Rec Center....have different activities/sports for children and adults (like the one in Rockville Centre)..I am thinking we'd need a VERY large plot for that though....just sayin....if I had the $$$ that's what I would do.. : )
rick donovan July 02, 2012 at 10:38 PM
Sam, It looked like the house was vacant!!!

It's from where I work from across the street that I use to clean there. It only appears to be suitable enough to be like a park and go for u-haul or enterprise car-rental.
rick donovan July 04, 2012 at 12:09 AM
Thanks Robert,I Think......
rick donovan July 04, 2012 at 12:11 AM

Also found out that the tenant that was living there moved out a few weeks ago....hmmmmmmm? Left on their own or asked to leave to open the door for this project.
