Sag Harbor officials ask developer Jay Bialsky to shrink condo project plan

Developer Jay Bialsky’s proposed 13-unit West Water Street condominiums are too tall, according to Sag Harbor Village Zoning Board of Appeals officials. The proposed condos would sit next door to the John Steinbeck Waterfront Park, which is currently under construction, 27East reported. Bialsky has applied for variances to build 15 feet closer to the street than is currently allowed and to build the three-unit structure 46-feet-tall — 11 feet higher than the 35-foot maximum. Town officials want Bialsky to bring the height down to have the building more closely resemble existing structures in the area. One resident at zoning board hearing, Gigi Morris, said the 46-foot height would “crook the neck of people passing by.” [27east]
