Art collector wants to build a giant pool in the Warhol estate

The Factory kids would’ve loved this! Art collector Adam Lindemann, who purchased the former Andy Warhol estate in Montauk for $50 million in 2015, applied to build a 450-square-foot pool, patio, and pergola on the nearly six-acre compound.

The backyard accessories require approval from the East Hampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals, according to the East Hampton Star. Known as Eothen, the beachside estate has hosted the likes of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minelli, and John Lennon throughout the years. The zoning board wants to ensure that Lindemann’s proposed changes are consistent with the integrity of the property, local officials said. [EHS]

Eleven Madison Park will summer in the Hamptons

Talk about a long excursion. Eleven Madison Park, an institution in the New York City restaurant scene, will set up shop in East Hampton this summer while its Madison Avenue location undergoes renovations and a redesign. Owners Will Guidara and Daniel Humm will open up the temporary eatery, to be called “EMP Summer House,” at 341 Pantigo Road in June. The original Eleven Madison Park will reopen in Manhattan around mid-September. [LLNYC]

Just kidding! Suffolk County Comptroller is not actually using the rental registry to target illegal Airbnbs

Whew. Looks like the Suffolk County Comptroller doesn’t have any new tricks up his sleeve after all. Days after 27East reported that the county official was using the newly implemented rental registries in Southampton and East Hampton to collect owed hotel taxes, an auditor for the comptroller told the paper that this was not the case. The auditor denied that the comptroller’s office requested to view the lists. Rather, the $25,000 collected in owed taxes was obtained through resources in the public domain, such as ads and rental listing websites. [27East]

Southampton considers new consumer protection requirement

Your new house in Southampton Town could soon get $200 more expensive. Southampton lawmakers are considering a proposal that would force homebuyers to obtain an updated certificate of occupancy before closing a sale, the East Hampton Star reported. The certificate would protect buyers from having to spend thousands of dollars to bring a house up to code without knowing that it wasn’t before acquiring it. Multiple surrounding villages in the South Fork already have this requirement in place. Getting an updated certificate of occupancy costs $200. The town board will next meet on March 28. [EHS]
