SUPPORT THE LIGHTHOUSE PROJECT

Informational Table at Gate 13 Spreads the Word About the Lighthouse Project

Islanders fans looking to learn more about the Lighthouse at Long Island - the transformation of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum property – can show their support by visiting the project's informational table at all Islanders home games.

Renderings of all the proposed facilities for the 150-acre site and members of the Lighthouse team will be there to help answer questions.  Fans can also sign up to obtain more information on the Lighthouse.

"Getting the Islanders fans involved and informed is a very important element in making this project successful," said Islanders owner and Co-Founder of the Lighthouse Development Group, Charles B. Wang. "For the most part, these are Long Islanders who care not only about their favorite hockey team, but share the vision of a destination at the Coliseum site for the better of the community."

More than 3,000 fans have come to talk with Lighthouse staff in the six games the information tables have been on the concourse. 

"It's been a great opportunity to reintroduce our revised Master Plan to the Islanders fans," said Matthew Frank, Managing Director of the Lighthouse Development Group. "Being at the Coliseum has enabled us to get people updated on where we are in the process of making this landmark project a reality. It provides a special opportunity to hear what people in the community are concerned about."

Through the rest of the Islanders home schedule, the Lighthouse Development Group will be at the Coliseum talking with and listening to hockey fans about the Lighthouse at Long Island. 

Stop by the Lighthouse display on the concourse, sign up to get more information and be part of the success of the most important development project on Long Island in 60 years!

 
About the Lighthouse Development Group, LLC.
Lighthouse Development Group, LLC, a joint venture between Charles Wang, the Founder of the Lighthouse project and owner of the New York Islanders and New York Dragons, and RexCorp Realty, LLC., Long Island's largest owner, manager and developer of commercial real estate, has been designated the exclusive developer of the Coliseum site and has entered into a Development Plan Agreement with the County of Nassau.  The partnership combines Charles Wang's vision for the revitalization of the aging Coliseum property with RexCorp's renowned expertise.

The Lighthouse project is the transformation of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum site and surrounding area into a modern 24/7 suburban center. The centerpiece will be a revitalized arena for the New York Islanders and New York Dragons, surrounded by exciting residential neighborhoods, lifestyle retail and entertainment venues, a sports technology center, multi-purpose athletic complex, state-of-the-art conference and exhibition facilities, a baseball stadium, and the first 5-star hotel on Long Island. The estimated $2 billion project is expected to generate almost $60 million of annual real estate tax revenue. An expected 17,000 construction jobs, thousands of permanent jobs and many new businesses will be created. Overall, the Lighthouse project will add more than $200 million of incremental revenue over the next 25 years to the County and the State from the renovation of the Coliseum alone and keep the New York Islanders on Long Island for decades to come.
