Chabad Proposes Smaller Building; KP Residents Wary
Three years of public hearings regarding the proposal of Chabad of Great Neck to construct a sanctuary, school and community center on an eight-acre slice of land in the Village of Kings Point, abutting 10 residences on East Shore Road, has resulted in a drastically reduced building plan that was unveiled on Jan. 26 at the continued hearing. Along with a reduction from the 87,000 square foot building plan originally proposed to a more modest 23,500 square foot plan, additional concessions, contained in a nine-page proposed document of covenants and restrictions between the Chabad and the village, were distributed. The new plan would also not request a variance to exceed height restrictions.
