  • News: Update on Main Street Developments

    For over a year, the buildings on the block between Irma and Herbert across from the railroad station have been vacant, pending development of the site. Many Port Washington residents have expressed curiosity about the future plans for this site. A May 12, 2005 Port News article described the developer's concept for mixed use (housing above storefronts). Now, however the lead developer, Sam Suzuki of the Vintage Group, said that the buildings have been put up for sale. Although no official application or formal plans were presented to town officials, Suzuki was not encouraged by the informal feedback that he got. He said, "The visioning process is just not moving fast enough." He added, "When I saw the plan unveiled, I didn't really see mixed use." Suzuki said that, in the interim, he may lease the existing storefronts and apartments. In addition to the lost income from the vacancies, Suzuki said that there has been vandalism at the site.
