PATCHOGUE, NY — The developers of a proposed luxury apartment complex in Patchogue has provided additional information on the project before the public hearing later this month.
The Cornerstone Waterfront at Patchogue complex is planned for the two-acre property on Mulford Street and West Avenue.
According to the Farmingdale-based developer, Terwilliger & Bartone, the 50-unit building will include a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments. The complex will include amenities such as roof top lounge and barbecue, a modern fitness studio, private parking and more.
Plans also include replacing the property's current 1,200 square-foot marina building with a modern clubhouse for marina patrons with showers, rooftop deck and amenities. Residents of the complex will have the right of first refusal for rental of the marina's 55 boat slips.
The developers also state that the proposal includes constructing a waterfront promenade as a public amenity with benches and lighting to "enhance the aesthetic of the area."
"We will be installing new permeable (self-draining) brick paver sidewalks from West Ave. down Mulford St. to the new permeable paver public waterfront promenade so community members can access and enjoy the scenic waterfront," the developer told Patch. "Currently, there are no sidewalks, and the road dead ends at the water, but we will transform the area with these improvements for the community using private funds at no cost to the residents."
A second meeting which will have a public hearing portion will be held on Jan. 27 via Zoom. There will then be a two week public written submission period and a date for the last meeting will be announced.
According to the developer, the current revised proposal has addressed every single concern raised by the village planning board, resulting in a zero-variance proposal.
For example, they stated that the plantings around the building will incorporate native species that require little to no maintenance to be more environmentally sustainable and conscientious.
