Variance Hearing Set for Glenwood Landing Waterfront Condo Application

The Town of North Hempstead Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) application by Glen Harbor Partners for variances to permit a condominium apartment building on the Glenwood Landing Waterfront is on the ZBA agenda for Wednesday, May 16, at 9:30 a.m.

According to the ZBA application, three height-related variances are needed to build the project as proposed: a one-story variance to permit a four-story structure; a two-foot, four-inch height variance for all of the structure except the elevator builkhead; and a six-foot, one-inch variance for the elevator builkhead on the street side of the building.

Last fall, when the town board heard the application to rezone the property from industrial use to multi-family residential use, the board noted that a variance would be need to permit ground-level parking under the building. Subsequently, the town passed a regulation permitting underground parking. Thus, a variance for parking beneath the building is no longer necessary.

At that time, the height of the building appeared to be within the height permited by town code; the need for a variance to permit four stories was identified. For more information, contact TNH Planning / ZBA at 869-7755.
