A 124-unit condo complex is preparing to break ground in Cutchogue with the first units expected to be move-in ready by this time next year.

Harvest Pointe, which will occupy 46 acres near the intersection of School House Lane and Griffing Street, opened a nearby sales office earlier this month. On display there are artist renderings of the proposed units, layout plans and countertop samples for the 55-and-over community, previously known as Heritage at Cutchogue.

“We’re building a first-class condominium project,” said Robert Morrow of Kenilworth Equities, which is building the units along with Jeffrey Rimland of Rimland Development. “It’s something that hasn’t been done on the North Fork in 20 years.” (more…)

Several years ago, Arnold and Karen Blair purchased a wooded lot adjacent to their Cutchogue home looking to ensure the peace and privacy on their waterfront property.

Today, it’s home to a sloping, meandering trail enhanced by lush perennials planted under towering oak trees.

“Once we had it, we said, ‘well, what are we going to do with it,'” Mr. Blair recalled. “Now it’s like a little park.” (more…)
