5,000 fewer square feet of retail; 14 fewer apartments

At a meeting of the Bridgehampton citizens advisory group, Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman said that the developers of the Gateway at Bridgehampton are willing to scale back the scope of the project, according to the Southampton Press.

The planned mixed-use project across from Bridgehampton Commons has been controversial, with a local group calling itself Bridgehampton Action Now (B.A.N.) has been formed in opposition to the development and has a Change.org petition going.

The plan previously included 90,000 square feet of retail and residential space; developers Carol and Greg Konner offered to reduce that to 85,000 square feet. In addition, the residential apartment units would be scaled back to 20 affordable units and four market rate units. In addition, the Konners are offering community green space for residents, as well as a state-of-the-art sewage system costing more than $1.5 million.
