18 Jul Developer Submits Impact Statement for $130M project
Southern Land Company has submitted a draft environmental impact statement to the Town of North Hempstead for its proposed $130 million luxury rental project in Port Washington.
The project at 145 West Shore Road would bring a seven-story, 176-unit apartment complex to a blighted 7.1-acre waterfront site on Hempstead Harbor. Plans include a massive cleanup of the property that had been used for loading barges with sand from long-abandoned mining operations across the street. The remediation, which could cost the developer as much as $15 million, will include the removal of two sunken barges and 50 tons of contaminated steel and creosote pilings that have turned the property into an eyesore.
