The Konica Minolta building on Charles Street has had its asbestos removed and is set to be demolished, according to Glen Cove mayor Ralph Suozzi.
Suozzi said he met with a representative from the property's parent company and the building's caretaker two weeks ago to discuss the future of the building, where a .
The building's walls will be torn down while the cement floor will be left, as the intention is to build a new structure on the 14-acre site, Suozzi said.
He did not give a timeline for the demolition.
He said a quarter-acre in the property's northwest corner has been a state Department of Environmental Conservation site for 20 years and will need to be remediated before something new can be built.
Suozzi said he plans on following up directly with the DEC to monitor that process.
There had been talk of a solar manufacturer moving to the site, but Suozzi said that while the parcel is zoned commercially, a new building probably won't be indistrial.
"Electricity costs on Long Island are high for that type of business," he said.
