Many Not in Favor of Zoning Change
As it currently stands, property owner AVR Realty has submitted an application to construct 118 two-story senior-restricted, market-rate condominiums for those 62 and older only; the submitted application is for 20 units less than town code allows for the total acreage and four less than what was proposed last September. Each unit would be two bedrooms and approximately 1,200 square feet. The site would host 10 buildings, including a resident-only recreation center with year-round indoor pool; on-site parking; and one entry/exit along Westbury Avenue. The proposal also provides for a 14,000 square foot outdoor recreation area, which includes a 5,000 square foot passive public park on the western portion closest to Waldbaum's, making approximately 38 percent of the property open space.
