There is a proposal to develop the Gothic inspired Christ Church on Northern Blvd. in Manhasset by Jobco Realty and Construction. Read the Manhasset Press article, Christ Church Property Proposed Development, for more details.
There have been public hearings regarding the proposed development and will be more in the future. I plan on attending the future hearings. The basic plan is to build a 4 story condo complex that will have a maximum of 61 units.
Many concerns have been raised and some proposed solutions. I see both sides of the issue and am looking forward to hearing how many concerns will be managed.
I have always been under the impression that the reason Manhasset was built with septic systems as opposed to public sewers is to prevent multiple dwellings from being built. I thought this was done in an effort to keep the small town and community flavor. Is this changing?
Will the existing sewer system be sufficient? Will this construction set a precedent for future multiple dwelling constructions? (Pave the way?) How will it affect pedestrian and street traffic?
I wonder who might purchase in the condo. Will it be existing empty nester residents down sizing from a 4 bedroom house? The purchasers for their homes may be families with school age children. Are the schools prepared to handle an increase in students?
There seems to be many tax benefits for the community and an increased number of residents will help local businesses. I am curious to see how these issues unfold. What are your thoughts?
