Four developers make proposals for Hamptons Business and Technology Park

Jul 2, 2008 11:42 AM

Suffolk County has received four proposals for the Hampton Business and Technology Park, a project that has been the subject of talks for at least a decade and could occupy up to 58 acres at Gabreski Airport in Westhampton.

Carolyn Fahey, the intergovernmental relations coordinator for the Suffolk County Department of Economic Development and Workforce Housing, announced the news at a Community Advisory Board meeting on Thursday, June 26, but did not release the names of the developers who have proposed plans for the project. Ms. Fahey did say, however, that she and a committee formed to review the proposals would decide on a developer by the second week of August.

Beecher Halsey, a member of the Gabreski Airport Community Advisory Board, asked if the plans called for multiple tenants, and Ms. Fahey said that they did.

The Hampton Business and Technology Park would be developed on the eastern section of the airport. The idea is to develop a combination of offices, retail support businesses, lodging or corporate centers.

Also at Tuesday night’s meeting, Joseph Fischetti, a member of CAB, presented the board with a new brochure for the noise abatement procedures for helicopters flying into Gabreski.

The brochure features a number of new proposed routes for helicopters flying into Gabreski. The routes mainly direct helicopters to enter Gabreski from the north, over the pine barrens, to avoid noise pollution to the communities to the west and south of the airport.
