Steven Krieger, Esq., Principal of the Engel-Burman Group, addressed the Seaford Chamber of Commerce regarding the Seasons at Seaford, a 55+ Lifestyle Community to be constructed on the site currently occupied by the old Seaford Avenue School.
Residents of the Seaford School District voted on December 12 of last year to approve the sale of the property. The school will be demolished and 112 condos, selling between the high 300’s and the low 400s will be built.
Mr. Krieger told the meeting that the project is currently before the Hempstead Town Board for a rezoning of the property, and acknowledged that, owing to the upcoming elections, “it’s a hard time of year” to get the matter approved at that level. He hoped that the community would support the project and that the chamber could write the town to urge its approval.
Mr. Krieger described the units: the condos will have two bedrooms and two baths, and will be stacked with a top and bottom unit. The bottom units will have basements; the top units a vaulted ceiling and a loft space. Elevators will be available so that those with difficulty walking can reach the upper units. The units will have gas heat and air conditioning; Maintenance charges will be between $275-300 per month, taxes are estimated at $8-11,000 per year.
A chamber member asked Mr. Krieger if Engel-Burman would use local businesses in the building process. He replied that they wanted to work closely with the local realtors, and that the would give every opportunity to local businesses to bid on parts of the construction. Mr. Krieger touted Engel-Burman’s other projects, such as the Meadows in East Meadow and the Bristal Assisted Living Facility. “We won’t just come and go – we’re Long Island guys,” he said.
