Baldwin residents urged the Hempstead Town Board to approve a $100 million mixed-use development project at a former parking lot along Grand Avenue after traffic flow concerns were addressed by the developer. At a second public hearing Nov. 22 for The Grand at Baldwin, a 215-unit transit-oriented rental project proposed by Breslin Realty Development Corp., several residents said the time has come to move forward on the project they hope will spark redevelopment of the area. 'We've lived with an unsightly and dirty storage lot for many years and it's time that we move beyond just looking at this ugly lot and get something in the ground,' said Steven Greenfield of Harrison Avenue, the street that would see the greatest traffic impact from the development.
