Workers have begun preparing the Accabonac Road site that will become East Hampton’s first new affordable housing project in nearly 10 years. Three “manor house” buildings will contain 12 condominium apartments on the three-acre property, which was formerly the Accabonac Tennis Club, 27 East reported. The town purchased the plot in 2008, but the plan to build affordable housing has lagged since. The price for each condo is expected to be between $150,000 and $300,000, and officials hope the first residents can move in before next Thanksgiving. [27 East]
