Marc Rowan is calling bluff on East Hampton’s building inspector

Private equity magnate Marc Rowan plans to transform four tiny shacks in Montauk into three larger resort cottages. But first, he must win a game of poker with the town planning board. His property at 80 Firestone Road is located just east of a bluff crest on Ford Pond Bay, according to the East Hampton Star, and the town building inspector determined in August that any construction would be close enough to the bluff to require variances from the zoning board of appeals. The Apollo Global Management co-founder’s representatives, however, are arguing that the bluff crest isn’t in fact a bluff and that the construction of the nearly 6,800-square-foot complex would not violate the town code. The three new cottages, to be designed by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects, would be made of glass and steel, and have flat roofs. The board will likely decide whether Rowan needs the variances at its next working session on Nov. 15. [EHS]
