    A Glen Cove resident got the chance to share the stage with Gloria Estefan on Saturday night.

    Shania Wilcox, a senior at Berklee College of Music, performed a duet with the music legend at the annual Berklee Encore Gala held at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston.

    “It was a highlight of the night,” a publicist for Berklee said.

    The event raised money for the nonprofit Berklee City Music, which empowers undeserving youth through music.

    Glen Cove Students Vote for the Next President

    Glen Cove High School sophomores in Valerie Stazzone’s class had an opportunity to vote for the next United States president as part of a culminating activity to their unit study of non-fiction.

    Prior to the election, the students read multiple articles that focused on education, national security, climate change and gender equality to get familiar with the issues and the views of presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. They also read both candidates’ platforms and watched the first two presidential debates. In class, the students discussed what they learned in a Socratic seminar. According to Stazzone, she initiated the unit by asking students if they felt they had a voice in the community.

    “It’s important for the students to realize they have a voice,” Stazzone said. “When we began this unit many students had preconceived opinions about each candidate. Through this process they were able to identify and focus on issues the students supported and match them with the candidate that best represented their beliefs.”

    Buying in Glen Cove, a vibrant North Shore community

    Glen Cove Mayor Reginald Spinello says one particular project is set to add to his city’s growth in a big way.

    “It’s been about 20 years in the making,” he says, “and we’re at the finish line right now.”

    That would be the massive Garvies Point development on Glen Cove’s waterfront that will add 1,110 condominiums and apartments. The $1 billion project, on 52 acres of land, will also feature parks, restaurants, marinas, office and retail space, a commuter ferry from Glen Cove to Manhattan, and other amenities.

    “We are going from a bedroom community to a vibrant destination location,” says Spinello, a lifelong Glen Cove resident. “We’re looking to attract millennials, young professionals and families looking for a beautiful community that has all the amenities right there.”

    Spinello says the closing on the property should come by the end of the month, and that he expects “a shovel in the ground in December.” Construction is expected to take five to six years, with all public amenities being built first...

    Groundbreaking planned for $1B Glen Cove project

    The developers of the $1 billion Garvies Point mixed-use project in Glen Cove will hold a groundbreaking ceremony next month.

    The event is slated for Tuesday, Dec 6 at 10 a.m. at the Glen Cove Ferry Terminal.

    The Garvies Point redevelopment will eventually bring 555 rental apartments, 555 for-sale condos, about 75,000 square feet of retail and office space and 28 acres of waterfront esplanades and parks to the site formerly occupied by heavy industry and junkyards.

    Construction starts next month on the project’s first phase, which includes six buildings of four, five and six stories on the eastern portion of the property that will contain the rental apartments and about 25,000 square feet of retail.

    More than 13 years after the project was first pitched, development partners Uniondale-based RXR Realty and Farmingdale-based Posillico along with City of Glen Cove opened the complex’s welcoming center in May.

    It’s been a long haul. The city signed a land development agreement with the project’s original developers in 2003 and initial approvals were granted in 2008, but the start of construction was delayed by the massive clean-up needed to remediate the once-toxic property, changes in the development team and poor market conditions.

    Two lawsuits aimed at preventing the start of the project were dismissed in August, paving the way for the groundbreaking.

    Manhattan-based Pizzarotti-IBC is the project’s construction manager and Joseph Roussine, a Glen Cove resident and the company’s vice president of construction will oversee building at the 56-acre redevelopment on Glen Cove Creek.

    RXR recently completed its $125 million bond sale for Garvies Point. Bids for the bonds exceeded the total available by more than 500 percent, according to an RXR statement.

    Earlier this year, the funding mechanism received approvals from the City of Glen Cove, Glen Cove Industrial Development Agency, Glen Cove Community Development Agency, Glen Cove Public Library Board of Trustees, Nassau County Legislature and the Glen Cove City School District Board of Education.

    Scott Rechler, RXR CEO, said the success of the bond sale “speaks volumes about the strength of this project” and its investor confidence.

    “Restoring the waterfront to productive use for the community will bring a much needed economic boost to the Glen Cove community in the form of jobs, tax revenue to the city, and hundreds of millions in spending by new residents,” Rechler said in the statement.
