Construction has begun on Three Mile Harbor, a $33 million housing development with 50 energy-efficient apartments in East Hampton.
“Three Mile Harbor will create 50 new, energy-efficient homes and provide opportunities for working families in East Hampton and strengthen the community through much-needed housing,” Governor Hochul said at the ceremony. “We will continue taking bold action to help ensure all New Yorkers have a more stable and equitable future for the next generation, and developments like Three Mile Harbor bring us closer to this goal.”
The development will include 10 one-bedroom, 29 two-bedroom and 10 three-bedroom apartments across five two-story residential buildings and a community building is also planned, with a meeting space, kitchenette, broadband Wi-Fi hotspot, and laundry facilities. The site will also have a playground and community patio.
Three Mile Harbor will be green certified under Enterprise Green Communities Criteria 2020 and Energy Star Certified Homes V 3.1, with the development utilizing Energy Star appliances, electric heat pump heating and hybrid electric hot water heaters. The design, operations and maintenance of the development will also incorporate water conservation and energy efficiency strategies.
“The development’s sustainable, energy-efficient design and ample green space demonstrates our commitment to building new housing that leads to a cleaner, healthier environment for all,” said Homes and Community Renewal Commissioner RuthAnne Visnauskas. “Thank you to all our partners, including Georgica Green Ventures, LLC and the East Hampton Housing Authority, for their work to help us reach this milestone.”
