Zoning approvals have been successfully secured to construct a brand new “Fairfield Inn” by Marriott near Republic Airport on SR 109 in Farmingdale, NY.
The new Hotel required approvals from the Babylon’s Town Board for a change of zone from G-Light Industrial to M-H Planned Motel-Hotel District, Zoning Board of Appeals and Planning Board for multiple area variances, as well as special permission to allow construction of a four (4) story hotel.
Approvals were obtained to demolish the run down structures and erect a beautiful new 4 story, 84 room hotel providing amenities including a business center, breakfast cafe, outdoor patio area, fitness center and other associated site improvements for the Fairfield Inn by Marriott.
Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer said, “The town is thrilled be part of a project that will transform a dilapidated property into a world-class hotel. We thank Mr. Brown for bringing us plans we could easily get behind.”
The Melville-Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce and Discover Long Island issued letters of support welcoming and wholly supporting the proposed redevelopment of the property.
The property with the existing buildings on the property are currently in terrible condition and remain a constant eyesore for all motorists traveling along NYS Route 109.
