New York Cosmos Stadium Complex

In response to a “request for proposals” issued by the Empire State Development Corporation, the New York Cosmos submitted a privately-funded economic development proposal to the State of New York to build a world class 25,000-seat professional soccer stadium.

 

The project was to transform two sections of Belmont Park into a vibrant entertainment complex, with a restaurant row of nine new eateries, nearly 250,000 square feet of retail space, a 175-room hotel and the development of a brand new 4.3 acre public park for the residential community.

On the southern portion, the Cosmos proposed to build a 25,000-seat world class soccer stadium, a youth soccer field, and a 4.3 acre park for the community of Elmont. A pedestrian overpass over Hempstead Turnpike would have connected the southern portion to retail shops, restaurants and a hotel to the north.

The northern portion of the project would have included nine restaurants and nearly 250,000 square feet of shopping.
