Developer Engel Burman to replace Deer Park school with senior housing complex

March 05, 2019

The school district in the hamlet of Deer Park voted four years ago to sell the onetime home of the defunct George Washington School to a developer, and now a deal finally looks like it may take place within the next few months, according to Newsday.

The developer has secured all of the necessary approvals from the Town of Babylon, of which Deer Park is a part, to move ahead with its plans, but is still awaiting a final go-ahead from the Suffolk County Department of Health Services to remove the agency’s wastewater on the site, Engel Burman’s attorney Christopher Kent of Long Island’s Farrell Fritz told Newsday. After that final sign-off is obtained, construction should take about 18 months, the outlet reported.
