A site plan application for the Canoe Place Inn property in Hampton Bays was officially submitted to the Town of Southampton on Feb. 23, according to Jim Morgo, spokesman for the developers, .
The application was originally anticipated to be submitted in October 2011, but was stalled due to ongoing "internal issues."
The site plan includes plans for the restoration of Canoe Place, which sits on 5.8 acres, as well as for the construction of a residential planned development district on the 7.2 acres of canal properties the Rechlers own.
According to the application, the Reichler's plan to restore Canoe Place Inn as an inn with 20 units along with a catering facility and 200-seat restaurant with bar area.
The plans also call for the construction of 40 town homes - not condos - along with an amenity building, pool, private marina and sewage treatment system.
The entire proposal is being treated as one , with a “swap” of development rights allowing for seven additional units – meaning 40, rather than 33 units on the canal properties are being offset by the community benefits. The application mentions a benefit of an open space purchase.
According to Jennifer Garvey, aide to the town supervisor, the town's land management department is currently reviewing the application and it is expected that the town board will discuss the SEQRA process for the project at it's March 23 work session. A copy of the application will soon be made available on the town's website and it is currently available at the town clerk's office.
