As residents drive by 1989 Merrick Rd., construction continues on the commercial property, which Patch has learned is close to being leased.
A Hempstead Town permit specifies a commercial building with off-street 16-car parking being built near the Arbor Lane and Merrick Road intersection. Darius Masonry of Copiague is the general contractor. The retail space is 3,135 square feet.
The real estate rep told Patch that the details on what's coming to the location can't be revealed until the deal is finalized.
"We hope to have more to share with you very soon," she said.
