Mastic Beach Master Plan
Mastic Beach, NY
The Mastic Beach Master Plan project exemplifies proactive collaboration between the Town of Brookhaven and Beachwood Homes Developers to revitalize their downtown area through a mixed-use development. The goals of the project are to eliminate blight, foster growth opportunities, encourage economic revitalization, and establish a pedestrian-friendly development featuring high-quality architecture, placemaking, and landscaping.
Situated at the intersection of Commack Road, Neighborhood Road, and Mastic Road, the study area holds great potential to become a prominent destination for the Town of Brookhaven and the Mastic Beach, New York, area. Its strategic location offers convenient access to various regional access points and amenities. The area is a mere 15-minute drive from the Mastic-Shirley MTA station to the North and Fire Island to the south. Manhattan residents can easily reach it via the LIRR system, and Hampton Beach is just a short 30-minute drive from the east.
To undertake the master planning effort, Beachwood Homes hired the expertise of Copper Carry's team. Our responsibilities included creating a transect plan that outlined different density distributions within the area, developing a vision plan with a development summary, devising a parking plan encompassing parking distribution and right-of-way cross sections, and integrating pedestrian-safety and place-making elements. Furthermore, Cooper Carry's team helped Beachwood Homes and the City of Brookhaven craft the regulation plan, which defined the form-based code for the area.
