Brookhaven IDA Approves Incentives
For Assisted Living Facility In Patchogue
FARMINGVILLE, New York – Brookhaven Industrial Development Agency (IDA) Chairman Frederick C. Braun, III
announced that the IDA board has approved incentives for D&F Patchogue A.L. LLC, which intends to build an assisted
living facility on vacant property in the heart of downtown Patchogue.
D&F, a developer of affordable family and senior housing based in Levittown, plans to construct an 87,000-square-foot, 5story, 128-unit facility on 1.33 acres at a cost of about $31 million. The facility will include 46 memory-care beds. The
facility initially will be owned by D&F and managed by Des Moines, Iowa-based Life Care Services, a national provider of
assisted living services. The project received zone change approval from the Village of Patchogue last year.
The project, at 18 Maple Ave., 22 Maple Ave. and 131 E. Main St. in Patchogue Village, will provide affordable senior
housing with an emphasis on special needs such as the frail elderly and those with mobility impairments. It will create 50
new jobs within two years and 164 construction industry jobs. Construction is expected to take about 20 months.
The IDA financial package includes a PILOT (Payment-in-Lieu-of-Taxes) agreement for the project. The developer also was
granted exemptions from sales tax on construction materials and equipment.
"Patchogue Village is an ideal location for this project," said Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine. "It's a very active
downtown setting where residents and their families will be just a few steps from restaurants, stores, the library, theatre and
more. I commend the IDA for working with D&F to ensure that this moves ahead, providing much needed jobs in our
“This project will provide an attractive residence for seniors in the Village of Patchogue and surrounding areas within the
Town of Brookhaven who wish to remain in the communities they helped to build and be near their families, while
providing services that will allow the seniors to be cared for in a hospitable setting,” Chairman Braun said.
In the last year, the IDA assisted 15 commercial projects including Rail Realty, an apartment complex in upper Port
Jefferson Village; Meadows at Yaphank Phase 1, a mixed use development in Yaphank; a solar installation on the roof of
Clare Rose’s facility in Yaphank, and Sayville Browning, an extended stay hotel in Ronkonkoma.
