- How is RXR and Glen Cove building 1,110 units in violation of MW3 Zoning?
- Why did Glen Cove recently deed the land to the developer? This action by the Glen Cove Community Development Agency (CDA) and Industrial Development Agency (IDA) has terminated the long-standing Land Development Agreement (LDA) for Garvies Point. Doesn’t this create substantial changes to the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and warrant revision of the FEIS under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) to address this change?
- How and why is RXR and Glen Cove working in west end of the Garvies Point site, when in the plan (and what residents were repeatedly promised), the east end was to be constructed first?
- It is a clear violation of law to put condominiums for sale without having an approved subdivision map. How can RXR and Glen Cove have had an approved subdivision map if the lead agency has not even approved the resolution?
- Why was RXR just “awarded” another Glen Cove Development – The Piazza?
- Under MW3 Zoning, the developer is required to have 25 contiguous acres to construct a Planned Unit Development (PUD). But a recent (and inexplicable) reduction in the number of acres sold to RXR causes both the eastern and western phases of construction to no longer be contiguous – doesn’t this then void the PUD?
- Due to this reduction in acreages sold to the developer, zoning under MW3 now only allows a total of 920 units maximum. So how is the developer still proceeding with 1,100 units?
- Why did the City of Glen Cove unexpectedly take out a $100+ million dollar bond to pay for “horizontal amenities” expenses that developer RXR was supposed to cover? The 2003 LDA states:
Except as otherwise provided in Article 17, all on-site infrastructure and associated costs of the Project, i.e., those to be located within the Property, including, without limitation, all internal road and parking facilities, storm water drainage systems, utility costs, including, without limitation, sewer, water, electricity, telephone and gas upgrades, will be the sole responsibility of the Redeveloper.
So isn’t RXR now violating the LDA?
This change too is in violation of the existing FEIS, and takes land off of Glen Cove’s tax rolls – in stark contrast to what was presented during the FEIS deliberation.
- Why does the new “Garvies Point Continuing Covenants Agreement” eliminate the sale of land to the developer where our “affordable” units were to be constructed? The construction of such units was an integral part of the prior approval process.
There sure has been a lot of confusion about the true size of the apartment towers at Garvies Point.
