Lynbrook Village board rejects proposal for $75M apartment complex near train station

In a 5-0 vote, the Lynbrook Village board of trustees voted last week to reject a bid to build a $75 million six-story, 200-unit apartment building dubbed the Cornerstone at Lynbrook near the village’s train station, according to Newsday, noting that trustees felt the project was too large for the community. Anthony Bartone of Terwilliger & Bartone, the developer, said he remains undeterred by the vote and still hopes to pursue the project, one designed to appeal to millennials and empty-nesters. Mayor Alan Beach said officials would be open to considering a smaller version of the project, whose scuttled version would’ve saw Terwilliger & Bartone build a $10 million parking garage to replace lost spaces, if the developer proposed it. [Newsday]
