Windwatch Tower - Hauppauge
This project will be adjacent to the Hamlet Windwatch Golf and Country Club in Hauppauge. The developer, Gerald Monter and The Holiday Organization, seeks to modify its deed for this property. Originally slated for the construction of 150 owner-occupied luxury condominiums, the developer is asking to change their deed so that they may construct 150 rental apartments in two buildings instead. They are proposing one eight-story and one five-story building to be constructed in two phases. The area residents are largely opposed to this change, calling it a “bait and switch” maneuver on part of the developer, who once promised luxury and is now delivering “affordable housing” instead.
On July 11, 2013, the Islip Planning Board reserved its decision.
