"Classic Galleries" Meeting Delayed
Rendering: Margolin and Margolin
The public meeting over the building plans for a large mixed-use apartment project at the “Classic Galleries” property in downtown Huntington, is now off the April 11th agenda of the Huntington Zoning Board of Appeals.
The Town of Huntington Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) scheduled the public meeting at Huntington High School, to allow the ZBA to utilize their auditorium for a public hearing on the Downtown Huntington application.
After following up with counsel for the applicant, the ZBA has confirmed that the April 11th date will not be held open for the Classic Gallleries / Downtown Huntington public hearing date; a date has yet to be determined for the hearing.
Known as “Downtown Huntington,” the project offered by developer John Kean and Classic Galleries owner Alan Fromkin ran headlong into such a large crowd of opponents at the January 24th ZBA hearing, that it was adjourned because the public couldn’t all be accommodated at Huntington Town Hall. There were close to 400 people at the meeting.
Opponents said the project, which involves five parcels on Stewart Avenue, Main and Gerard streets, is far too large for the retail area.
The developers say the project would provide needed downtown housing, and offered a plan that would include 84 apartments, a four-story retail space and a parking garage. The property owner and the Town have been meeting for years to produce the current plan.
According to the Town, Kean and Fromkin need variances for ground-level use in a mixed-use building and for the parking garage.
Site Plans and the Environmental Assessment Form (EAF) for the Downtown Huntington project are currently available at Huntington Town Hall, Department of Planning and Environment, Room 212 at 100 Main Street, Huntington.
The project proposal was already modified by the owner, under pressure from the Town, to preserve the original historic facade of the Huntington Fire Company, which occupied the site from 1911 to 1958.
