The Club at Melville, a 260-unit income-restricted senior community on Deshon Drive, had its grand opening Tuesday.

The celebrations started with a ribbon cutting by Continental Pinewood Development Partners officials and elected officials, including Huntington Town Supervisor Frank P. Petrone and Councilwoman Susan A. Berland welcoming some residents.

While this was a grand opening celebration, construction continues on some of the buildings. The community is built on the site of a former Newsday preprint distribution warehouse.

The development emerged from a complex three-way deal that allowed construction of the affordable senior units, a park, and a house of worship on two separate sites in Melville.
