The Uplands at St. Johnland

The Uplands at St. Johnland – Fact Sheet
  • Proposed Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) on vacant land just south of the St. Johnland Nursing Home.
  • Proposed development includes: 153 Apartments, 22 Townhouses, and a 24 Unit Assisted Living facility on a 50-acre property.      
  • Buildings will be 4 stories above ground and one to two stories below. This is because the 50 acre property, which includes a freshwater pond, has so many environmental conditions; its location in the Nissequogue River corridor, slopes, wetlands, shallow ground water and a fresh water pond, that the developer cannot achieve their proposed density without building up instead of out.  So when they say that they have  an eye on conservation, it is because they had to.
  • Prices will range from $395,000 (1 Bedroom Apt.) to $825,000 (Townhouse). On top of that, MONTHLY fees will range from $2,250 to $3,950, plus at least another $1000 for a spouse.  These MONTHLY prices will double at the assisted living rate as well as be subject to future increases.                             
  • Project also includes 531 above-ground parking spaces and 104 underground parking spaces.
  • There will be a 5+ Acre Leaching Field for sewer effluent in an area that was previously designated as a local water revitalization conservation zone.
  • The property is zoned 1 acre residential construction. The present zoning only would allow for 21 homes.
  • This project will create an entirely new land use designation for Smithtown (CCRC).
  • St. Johnland estimates that only 12% of the project's residents will actually come from the entire Smithtown Township.
  • There are an unprecedented number of actions needed to construct this facility on this site.
  • Even with the creation of a new zone and a zone change, The Uplands still can't meet Town requirements and needs another SIX SUBSTANTIAL Town Board Special Exception Variances. 
  • The Kings Park Civic Association agrees there is a need for senior housing in Kings Park but strongly contends that this is the wrong location.
