Developer tries for zoning change in historic Huntington district

July 09, 2018 12:57PM

Huntington officials will consider a zoning change for a historic site once visited by George Washington. Such a change would make way for Deer Park developer Dominick Mavellia’s plans to replace the food pantry and deli on the site with a 10,000-square-foot office building on the site. He had proposed the project back in 2015, but it stalled at the time over the zoning concerns. The next year, Mavellia shrunk the plans by 2,000 square feet and incorporated historical design elements, but it still didn’t move forward. Mavellia recently resubmitted his plans and resumed talks with architects, historical groups and community members. [Newsday]
