Peconic Landing, a nonprofit retirement community in Greenport, has announced a planned $45 million expansion to its nursing facility that would add 80 residents to the existing 380 residents.

The expansion, which would start in December, would be the largest in the facility’s history, said Robert J. Syron, Peconic Landing president and chief executive.

Southold Supervisor Scott Russell said the expansion is still in the town’s review process and awaiting final approval from the planning board.

“Historically, Peconic Landing has been very good for Southold, as an employer, a neighbor and a central part of the community,” Russell said.

Peconic Landing officials said construction could start in December 2013.

“We’ve been planning the expansion for many years,” Syron said in an interview. “There’s a high demand.”

The expansion would include 16 new private skilled nursing units in a “neighborhood model” and another 16 units for those with cognitive impairment, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Another 46 residential apartments also would be added.

Peconic Landing officials said this would add 40 to 45 new jobs to the 250 existing employees.
