Developer Breaks Ground on Indian Hills Project

Work has gotten underway on the controversial townhouse development known as the Preserve at Indian Hills.

Long Island Business News reported that the project, which received final approval from the Huntington Planning Board in April, was launched Monday with a groundbreaking though there is a lawsuit pending, filed by the Fort Salonga Property Owners Association.

The developer Northwind Group plans to build 74 townhomes ranging in price fro $1.25 million to $1.8 million, for residents 55 and up. The company touts the units by saying, “Let Gatsby Have His Version Of The Gold Coast. At The Preserve At Indian Hills, You’ll Have Yours.”

The townhouses are three-bedroom, two-car garage units on a waterfront golf course.

Democratic Town Board candidate Don McKay wrote on Facebook, “There was zero communication or notification to the nearby residents. Bulldozers rolled in the early morning and started the clear-cutting at the end of Mystic Lane to build a model townhome. The arrogance and complete lack of respect to the Ft. Salonga community continues.”

Several neighbors had fiercely opposed the development at 21 Breeze Hill Road, Northport, citing concerns about traffic and the environment.
