Terwilliger & Bartone Properties will abandon its plan to build the Cornerstone at Lynbrook, a $75 million transit-oriented rental complex, according to Newsday. The 200-apartment project was opposed by neighbors and its application was rejected in November by the Lynbrook Village board of trustees. “The vote by the mayor and trustees last November against our application is a clear indication that the size and scope of the project is too large,” said Anthony Bartone, managing partner of Terwilliger & Bartone. He criticized the project’s opponents, the Preserve Lynbrook Party, for spreading “ridiculous allegations” about the proposed development that had “no factual basis.” “We will not resubmit unless the project is significantly smaller than our previous proposal, and only after community feedback from residents,” Bartone added. Deputy Mayor Hilary Becker, a member of the Preserve Lynbrook Party, is also trying to unseat the village’s current mayor, Alan Beach. “[I’m] glad to see the developer is finally making it public that he’s only now pulling out of our village,” Becker told Newsday. “But nothing stops the developer and Alan Beach from doing a 360 and steering this no-bid project back after Election Day.” [Newsday]
