Now, a team of business and government officials are proposing a 250,000 square-foot bioelectronic research facility on a portion of the 91-acre Uniondale site, according to Innovate Long Island.

Yuk Lam’s Fresh Meadows-based Lam Engineer is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story house will have to be demolished.
