The Glen Cove planning board is scheduled to vote today on a site plan for the second phase of the giant Garvies Point waterfront project.

The board also is slated to conduct a preliminary review of the site plan for Village Square in downtown Glen Cove, a project set to include apartments, stores and a public plaza.
Uniondale-based RXR Realty is the majority owner of the developers of both Garvies Point and Village Square.

The second phase of Garvies Point includes 167 condominiums in a five-story building, two parks, a dog park, an esplanade and a boardwalk.

The entire Garvies Point project is set to include, when complete, 1,110 condos and apartments, several parks, stores, offices, restaurants and marinas. The planning board approved a master plan for the project in October 2015. Groundbreaking was in December.

In 2015, the Village of Sea Cliff and 105 area residents filed separate lawsuits aimed at blocking construction of Garvies Point, but in August a Supreme Court judge in Nassau County dismissed the suits. The plaintiffs are appealing.

The planning board meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in the City Council chambers at City Hall.
