JK Equities Receives Zoning Approval from Village of Roslyn

Roslyn, NY-based JK Equities received zoning approval from the Village of Roslyn’s board of trustees to construct a mixed-use building at 281-301 Warner Ave. JK Equities’ application for the transit-oriented development is comprised of one floor of retail with 54 residential apartments above. The development will also contain 104 onsite parking spaces.
The property currently houses a strip of empty storefronts and was originally zoned for commercial use only. In October 2020, the board passed a change of zone ordinance for 281-301 Warner Ave., changing its underlying zoning from commercial to transit oriented, mixed-use. Final approval for JK’s project came last week.
“We are thrilled with the board’s decision, which will allow us to proceed with the development,” said Jerry Karlik, principal of JK Equities. “We are very thankful to the entire team who has worked tirelessly over the last three years to make this happen.”
