Nearly a decade after buying three acres of land on 181 Accabonac Road, East Hampton Town officials are finally gearing up to break ground. But first up, they will have to choose a contractor to manage the construction. The 12-unit condominium project will comprise three manor-style structures, 27East reported, and will take up to two years to build. The town spent $882,000 on the land in 2007, and had by then already considered the design. But it was soon shelved when a financial scandal in the town and a $30 million deficit was revealed in 2008. Depending on the type of construction, the final cost will run between $2.5 million and $3 million, according East Hampton housing director Tom Ruhle. The Town Board will vote to approve the chosen contractor later this month or in April. [27East]
