New Housing Developments are Urbanizing Long Island

These days, Long Island’s affluent North Shore — an area dominated by single-family homes — has at least six multi-family residential developments in progress. Of course, these structures — including buildings several stories high and compounds set behind private entrances — have dotted its landscape for decades, but properties currently under construction will flood the area with thousands more units in the coming years.

Suburban projects with urban amenities don’t have to be mega-developments. The 240-unit Ritz-Carlton Residences in North Hills, whose first phase opened in 2016, for example, has 10 homes on the market priced from $1.42 million.
