The Huntington Town Planning Board has voted to give conditional site-plan approval to one of the centerpiece projects in the revitalization of Huntington Station.

The board approved the Northridge project, a three-story building with commercial uses on the first floor and eight residential apartments on each of the upper two stories for a total of 16 dwelling units.

The building will be on the northeast corner of Northridge Street and New York Avenue.

“Our team is extremely excited that through our partnership with the community and the town we have crossed yet another hurdle towards revitalizing Huntington Station,” said Ryan Porter, Renaissance Downtowns’ vice president of planning and development.

Some of the conditions that need to be met include revision of the proposed roof-drain line associated with a drainage system; propose the type of pipe and diameter for the roof drain; propose a location for a concrete wash-out station, among other things.

The town Zoning Board of Appeals approved variances for the project on May 26.

Porter said he hopes construction on the building can begin late this year or early in 2017.
