The Babylon Industrial Development Agency agreed to the Engel Burman Group’s request for a $21 million property tax cut on a 200-unit apartment complex for residents 55 and older that the developer will build on the former site of George Washington School in Deer Park, Newsday reported. Instead of the $43 million that the developed property would have yielded, Engel Burman will now pay only $22 million in property taxes over the next 30 years. The Garden City-based developer is still in the process of buying the site from the Deer Park School District and has yet to demolish the former school building located at 220 Washington Avenue. Engel Burman, which specializes in senior living centers, plans to spend about $30 million to build 14 buildings containing two-bedroom apartments, a recreation center and school district offices. The 10-acre parcel will also include a single-family home built by Engel Developer, as well as 350 parking spaces for senior residents. All necessary approvals have been secured and the project is awaiting the final go-ahead from Suffolk County. The school district wants to close on the sale by the end of June, said Christopher Kent, a partner at Farrell Fritz, a Long Island law firm advising Engel Burman on its plans for the complex. [Newsday]
