New York’s First Green Industrial Park Breaks Ground on Long Island

The first industrial park project in New York State to seek LEED certification is now set to be on Long Island, just west of the Hamptons.

On Monday, a trio of co-developers broke ground on a Long Island industrial park project that will be the first such development anywhere in New York State to seek LEED certification. Located in the Moriches hamlet of Brookhaven, just west of the Hamptons, the 10-acre park will be designed to an unspecified rating and feature seven buildings offering 78,000 square feet of industrial space.

According to Vincent Trapani, head of Bayshore-based U.S.A. Industries, one of the developers, the $7 million project should open by the end of the summer and could feature a solar panel company as one of its tenants. Trapani called the development “a green supermarket” for green construction companies, and expects that it will save close to 60 percent in utility costs thanks to low-flow water fixtures and efficient insulation.

The other two developers are Minas Michaelian, whose company builds senior citizen housing projects, and Charlie Rogers, the president of Lindenhurst Fabricators.

    I will be moving to Long Island in June, and I am very much interested in finding “green collar” work.

    I will be on Long Island during the week of March 10-14 and would like a chance to explore the job opportunities this Park will provide.

    Can you give me some more info on how to apply for work in this new venture?

    Thank you,
    Truman Bashore

    Hey Truman,

    Get rid of the beard. Then go find some work.

    Dear Truman,

    If by “green collar” work you mean calling people “chumps” and “cowboys” then I would imagine there’s a spot open somewhere for you. Or if you mean by “green collar” work you mean going “eh?!” every time someone asks you a question, you should be able to find a spot somewhere. Bob is right. Shave the damn Civil War era beard before Ken Burns attempts to use you for his next documentary.
