Developer Renews Efforts to Build Eight Homes Off Garden Road

Renewed efforts are underway to build a nine lot subdivision at 80, 88 and 90 Garden Road. The proposal for a subdivision went before the Planning Board in 2018 but was subsequently put on hold. Developer Eilon Amidor came before the Planning Board at their April 28, 2021 meeting to seek approval for the project which borders a wetland and would require a new road which the developer proposed to be a public road to be maintained by the Village.
The site has many challenges. As there is not enough municipal water pressure on the site, the developer is proposing that each house be serviced by its own well. The site is also very wet, with a study from a previous engineer showing up to 5 feet of ground water. In order to raise the property level, they are proposing to use ground fill to increase the grade by 4-5 feet, which would require the removal of trees. They don’t know yet if the houses will have basements or be built on slabs.
A SQRA determination would be required to determine whether the project creates any adverse environmental impacts.
An attorney for a Willow Lane resident whose home backs the site sent a letter documenting the long history of efforts to develop the site. The letter from Brad Schwartz of Zarin and Steinmetz says, “We have represented Mr. Falk in connection with all the prior applications to develop this site over the past 15 years. There have been different applicants and various engineering firm and other design professionals who have looked at this. This is not an easy site to develop ….Three major drainage lines converge at the boundary of the Falk property and discharge into the small stream that crosses the backyard. These drainage lines are at capacity. They cannot handle additional flows from new development. Moreover the project site is an undeveloped marshland with poorly draining soil and a high ground water table. The entire area was designated by the Village as a Sensitive Drainage Area in February 2009.”
At the April 28 meeting the attorney raised the issue of the high water table and environmental consultant retained by Falk requested information on the minimum runoff reduction volume and soil infiltration.
The Board adjourned this item to their May 26, 2021 meeting.
However, even before a subdivision has been approved, a few of the lots are listed for sale. 80 Garden Road Lot 7 is listed for $4,500,000, Lot 6 is listed for $4,900,000 and Lot 5 is listed for $5,500,000. The proposed homes range from 8,850 to 9,560 square feet each with 8 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. Each home would have a swimming pool as well.
According to listing broker Susan Greenberg, “The builder believes he will get approvals and that it is a matter of time. We are fully disclosing that the lots are not yet approved and everything is contingent upon the board’s approval.”
