Developer Schedules Informational Meeting On Dune Deck, 'The Hills'

Apr 26, 2016 3:36 PM

The developer behind two major housing projects in the western side of Southampton Town will hold an informational meeting at Buoy One in Westhampton next week.

Mark Hissey, vice president of Discovery Land Company, said he and his team will be discussing Dune Deck in Westhampton Beach, a new oceanfront resort that is currently being built, as well as “The Hills at Southampton” in East Quogue, a proposed luxury golf course resort community, during the meeting on Thursday, May 5. Light food and drinks will be provided by Discovery Land during the meeting.

“We’re going to give everyone an update about what is going on with those two projects,” Mr. Hissey said.

Dune Deck is a 32,141-square-foot hotel on Dune Road in Westhampton Beach. It is expected to feature 33 two-bedroom units, an outside deck, a main pool, a jacuzzi and kiddie pool, tennis courts, a restaurant and a bar. It will also boast an updated septic system that conforms to Suffolk County standards, according to the developer.

Mr. Hissey will also be discussing “The Hills” and the related proposal for a planned development district, or PDD, a special change of zone for the property. Discovery Land is seeking to build 118 homes—95 single-family homes, 13 clubhouse cabins and 10 clubhouse condominiums—as well as an 18-hole golf course on 168 acres along Spinney Road in East Quogue.

In addition to discussing the two projects, Mr. Hissey said the meeting will also serve as a fundraiser for the Moriches Bay Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to cleaning the Moriches Bay. Discovery Land has been involved with the Moriches Bay Project for a little over a year, according to Mr. Hissey.

Any donations made during the meeting to the Moriches Bay Project will be matched by Discovery Land, he added.
