For over a decade the Town of Babylon has worked on creating housing for young professionals centered around a transit hub. The MTA / LIRR Wyandanch Train station is the centerpiece of this 'transformative project,' as designated by, Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Regional Economic Development Council.

The LIRR agreed to a land swap that helped make the project a reality. A new 900-car LIRR parking facility and new LIRR station building at Wyandanch are also planned as part of the project.
