Riverside, Long Island, NY
Riverside is a hamlet in the Town of Southampton, Long Island nestled at the Peconic River just before it enters the Bay at the axis of the North and South Forks of Long Island’s East End. It provides potential gateway opportunities to the Hamptons on the South Fork, and to Wine Country and potential agro-tourism of the North Fork. It is in a likely position to attract a range of markets segments, including the young workforce and empty nesters who seek multifamily residential options at the East End, as well as a host of visitors who, combined with the future residents of the area, would create a true live, work, learn, shop and play environment.
In April 2014, Renaissance Downtowns entered into a public-private partnership with the Town of Southampton. In December of 2015, the Town passed the most progressive zoning entitlements in its history. This was a result of an incredible effort between environmentalists, the community, the municipality and Renaissance.
Currently, Renaissance is engineering an environmentally beneficial waste-water solution, which will be required to create a net positive benefit to the Peconic Estuary while allowing over 3M SF to be developed.
