On July 18th, with final approval from the Safe Zone City Council, Yamagato Industries completed the land use review process for its proposed Roosevelt Island reconstruction effort.

The review process began in the fall and included approval from the Safe Zone Community Planning Board and the Safe Zone City Planning Commission. Yamagato Industries expects to break ground on Roosevelt Island in early 2019, with the first phase to be completed in 2020, and full build-out planned for 2021.

"We are extremely grateful for the support of the city council for this opportunity," said Kam Nisatta, acting president of Yamagato NY. "We worked throughout the public review process to incorporate input from the community into our approach - that input has resulted in a stronger build plan. We are confident the result is a neighborhood we can all be proud of and that will benefit both the new Roosevelt Island community and the entire Safe Zone. We look forward to breaking ground next year and continuing to work closely with the community as our rebuild develops."
