Boatel proposed in Port Washington.
Newsday recently reported on a proposal from a developer who is currently building a 32 unit condo project on the site of the former Knickerbocker Yacht Club which existed on the site from 1907-2009. The club was demolished in 2012.
The town of North Hempstead is considering letting developers add “Boatels” to mixed use projects in the business waterfront zoning district. The change would allow a new class of housing “Boatels” to attract out of town boaters.
The project is being developed by Cord Meyer Development Co. Their proposal includes the addition of 6 motel units that would be built as 1 room efficiencies built in a separate 2,000 sq.ft building on the site.
New York Boater thinks this is a great idea and hopes the town allows this project to move forward. If you’re looking for additional info on this project take a look at http://cordmeyer.net/properties/portwashington.htm
