Yesterday, the Cosmos made news with the leaked release of a potential bid for a new stadium.
Today, the renderings have been made public by the club itself.
As part of the “Elmont Town Crossing” proposal, a 25,000 seat arena will be the focal point of a vibrant new project that will include the erection of hotels, eateries and retail space in an area crushed by the economic recession. The proposed project would create more than 500 construction jobs, and over 3,000 full-time permanent jobs between the stadium and it’s surrounding commercial area. The construction alone would bring in over $500 million for Nassau County with over $200 million in annual revenue as well.
Of course, the icing on the cake is the cost; the $400 million project will be privately financed.
As discussed yesterday on EoS, the proposed land for the stadium borders Queens and Long Island, but is considered Nassau proper.
