Discovery Seeks Approval For East Quogue Project

first_imgThe Hills in East Quogue, pictured in a rendering made by the developer, may have to be redrawn again.No matter how many years it takes, no matter how many assorted municipal boards mull the plan over, and no matter how many variations of the plans are ultimately drawn up, one thing seems a certainty: There is going to be 100-plus luxury homes built in East Quogue on nearly 600 acres.It would be the largest development in the modern history of the hamlet.There have been nearly three years of spills and chills, charges and counter charges, legal threats, and altercations. The next milestone will occur on Thursday, November 15, at the Southampton Zoning Board of Appeals regular meeting. At that time the board will vote, with no further comment, on the latest reiteration.In an earlier version, Discovery Land Company sought to create a Planned Development District that would incorporate the golf course and luxury homes into it. The applicant needed a super majority of the town board, but did not get it.Discovery then turned to the planning board to seek approval for a Planned Residential District for the newly named The Lewis Road Planned Residential Development, which treats the golf course as an amenity for the property owners — it would not be open to the public.A new wrinkle developed in June. The planning board decided Chief Building Inspector Michael Benincasa should make the determination after Anthony Trezza of Discovery opined the planning board probably didn’t have jurisdiction. Benincasa, though, had to recuse himself: He had already voiced his opinion at a public hearing. That put the application in the hands of the ZBA.Carolyn Zenk, a Southampton attorney with a long history in planning and zoning matters and a former town board member, represents private interests. Her client is worried about the groundwater and the negative effects development — especially a golf course — will bring.She called the current plan “grossly misleading.” Further, she said, “Golf courses don’t belong in the Pine Barrens.” Discovery, and its attorney Wayne Braun, argued that recreational uses like tennis and golf routinely take place in private subdivisions. The developer also pointed out that several golf courses have been built in residential zones in Southampton. Numerous homeowners also have one or more golf holes on their property to practice on. Zenk said it is clear cut: “All unlisted uses are prohibited,” she said, and noted golf courses are not a permitted use anywhere in the town code.Adam Grossman, the chair of the ZBA, noted that Discovery is already suing the town over the PDD. Both sides in the PRD application have vowed to take legal action should they not approve of the pending ZBA decision. “Let’s just say there is a strong possibility there will be litigation,” Grossman said. Discovery is already suing the town over the PDD denial as well.But there is more — yet another Discovery proposal lurks, this one to go to the planning board without a golf course option, although in addition to legal action, the company will reportedly pursue other options: to buy a nearby golf course.Ironically, the best chance to minimize damage to the aquifer and postpose nitrogen loading to the nearby bays has probably come and gone.During the PDD hearing process, Discovery was going to purchase 33 additional acres of land at the headwaters of Weesuck Creek and preserve it. The owner, Carolyn Parlato, said she plans to develop it, adding more septic flow into the ground. Discovery also offered an aid/incentive package to the East Quogue School District that included a significant upgrade in the septic system.East Quogue school district officials voiced their support for The Hills to no avail.Mark Hissey, a representative for Discovery, warned the company wasn’t required to do any of the upgrades it volunteered.“We’re going to end up with a subdivision that is worse,” Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman said at the time.Richard Amper, the executive director of the Long Island Pine Barrens, is opposed to any sort of development and would like to see the town purchase the property. So would the newest Southampton Town Board member, Tommy John Schiavoni, whose “no” vote helped sink the PDD application.But Hissey said his company will never sell the land to the town, and a perusal of its business model indicated the company is a very successful development company, and East Quogue fits nicely into its portfolio.According to its offering page, Discovery Land Company, founded in 1994 by Michael Meldman, specializes in building luxury residential private club communities and resorts throughout North America. There are more than 20 world-class projects in the portfolio. “Our communities are distinct with their own architectural styles, world-class amenities, and high levels of service. There are Discovery developments in Mexico, the Bahamas, Hawaii, and many other luxury markets. Many of its clients buy one or more homes and travel seasonally. Discovery is rumored to be preparing for any contingency. The company is reportedly in contract to buy a golf course nearby and already owns the Dune Deck in Westhampton. If Discovery can find a marina to buy, it can offer potential homeowners in East Quogue a boating, dining, and golf experience without building a golf course on its Pressey Sharelast_img read more

From Milan To The Hamptons

first_imgJaime LopezNative to Peru, Jaime Lopez came to New York to study graphic design at Parsons in 1980 only after being rejected from his choice university in Switzerland, which had hit its quota of Latin American students. Upon arrival Lopez, who only spoke Spanish at the time, was quickly forced to learn English prior to beginning his studies. Then, during an internship with photographer Alex Chatelain he came across his true calling. Since then, his photos have been published across the fashion landscape in Cosmopolitan, GQ, Elle, and other magazines. He now resides in Sagaponack with his wife, former model, Marilyn Clark, and two daughters, as he works on his latest project, a book capturing local artists.How did you discover your love of photography?When I got to 100 Fifth Avenue, I went up to the top floor and I didn’t walk out until I got an internship. I got a week-long internship with a fashion photographer — Alex Chatelain. I fell in love with the freedom of the pace and the amount of people that work together on a photoshoot. Then I switched careers.What was your first hired shoot?I moved to Milan to do a year abroad. I worked for anybody that would hire me. I originally went for only eight months but I ended up staying for 10 years. It was at the time Spain was being admitted to the European Union and all the major magazines had unprecedented editions in Spain. For a photographer to be there at that moment, a huge moment of growth, they didn’t have enough talent there. It was the best thing ever.Independent/Jaime LopezHow do you know when an image is right for print?It depends on the subject. If your subject understands your vision and is an artist, you will have the picture very quickly. You know that you got the picture and then you’re just curious about what else. You become like a scavenger trying to provoke other situations. Ninety percent of the work is done. Finding the location as you walk around, trying different attitudes, trying to find a more spontaneous picture.Did you meet your wife, an East Hampton native, on a shoot?In 1985, we were on a shoot in Florida. I was there for 15 days and models came and went. She was the only model involved with the pictures when she was not in front of the camera, helping out. It was weird but we had a better chance to catch up.How do you choose black and white v. color?The picture chooses itself. The location, the clothing, the model. The drama in the clouds or the story the picture is telling you. A girl that’s wearing all black leather, with a lot of art in the background, that’s better off in black and white. Something very colorful like red boots, whatever that is very flashy, that calls for color. Nowadays, with digital photography, it’s easy. In the old days, you had to mount the camera with black and white film and that was it, unless you had another camera with color film.Independent/Jaime LopezWhat is your favorite camera to work with?Now it’s the Canon. With film, I used Nikons.What is the book you’re working on?It’s a wonderful project with around 40 Hamptons artists. When I got the studio, I told my agent I need a project. I started working with Folioeast, the name of my gallery here on the East End. And I wanted to photograph all of their artists.Where do you take these photographs?It’s at my studio with a white background, where I tried to provoke situations that take you away from being scared of being in front of a camera. We play, we discover. Sometimes we don’t do anything. They are sometimes hiding behind a newspaper or with their hands in their pocket. Then I go to their studio and photograph them in their environment and that environment — the paintings, the backdrops, the tubes laying around. I try to photograph the energy of that art.When did the project begin?It began last summer. I’m aiming to have it done by spring 2020. We are trying to rush it now because a few artists work outdoors. Sharelast_img read more

Unjust deserts

first_imgThe boot was on the other foot last week, when Obiter found himself cast as a token male at the International Women in Law Summit 2012. He listened with humility as Law Society vice-president Lucy Scott-Moncrieff told delegates that senior male partners generally thought they deserved their success, rather than it being a mere ‘accident of birth’ that they were not born female. Set up on your own, she urged delegates, it’s the one way to be sure that ‘your male boss is not being unfair’. City firm Ashurst partner Helen Burton told a breakout group about an all-women shortlist for promotion that she and others had to consider. She said: ‘Someone wondered whether we should add a man to make it look good, even though for years it had been OK to have all-men shortlists…’ A delegate had the final word: ‘Women are more efficient than men – and more honest.’ Obiter sloped off home, duly chastened.last_img read more

No bargain in this basement

first_imgIt is fair to say that basement conversions are controversial. On the one hand, they can cause mayhem and stress for neighbours but on the other, they provide an excellent solution to alleviating cramped living once completed. Basements also raise particular design challenges which can lead to numerous problems if things go wrong, including if the insurers refuse to pay and the question arises: who is at fault? The recent case of Goldswain vs Beltec Ltd (t/a BCS Consulting) [2015] (TCC) provided welcome insight into these knotty issues where the remit of an engineer’s duty to warn, and extent of responsibility for design, were considered.The facts of the case were as follows: Mr Goldswain and his partner Ms Hale (the claimants) owned a ground floor flat in a semi-detached house. The flat had a cellar and the plan was to convert the cellar into living accommodation by underpinning the outer walls and lowering the floor to create more height. The claimants appointed engineer Beltec Ltd to design the essential structural works and AIMS Plumbing and Building Services Limited to carry out the work. AIMS started the work and installed the underpinning but apparently not anything else of importance. AIMS retained Beltec to visit the site to inspect the construction of the initial pin and Beltec duly visited the site and advised AIMS that the pin had not been constructed in accordance with the design.  Engineers should expect that builders would understand and act upon the construction method indicatedThe underpinning was completed but shortly afterwards, following increasing amounts of cracking in the superstructure, the house collapsed.  The claimants’ insurer refused to cover the claim on the grounds of inadequate construction.The claimants then issued proceedings against Beltec and AIMS claiming that Beltec had failed to exercise the appropriate level of skill and care when designing the basement and failed to warn the claimants about the contractor’s progress following the initial site visit. Unfortunately, according to the judgment, AIMS was, at that time, “believed to be insolvent” and so did not take part in the proceedings. The court ruled that Beltec was not liable and that there was an overwhelming probability that AIMS had failed to carry out its work with reasonable skill and care or complied with the drawings with which it had been provided. Therefore, AIMS’ breaches of contract had caused the collapse. The key points to note are as follows:The court had close regard to the scope of Beltec’s retainer and held that Beltec had no ongoing obligation to supervise the works. Beltec’s obligation was limited to providing the claimants with the structural designs with reasonable care and skill. Competent engineers should be entitled to expect that builders would understand and act upon the construction method indicated in the drawings.The court explained that when and to what extent the duty will apply will depend on all the circumstances, but it will often arise when there is an obvious and significant danger either to life and limb or to property. In addition, the obligation can arise when a careful professional ought to have known of such danger, having regard to all the facts and circumstances. The court will be unlikely to conclude that a duty to warn arises in situations where, at the time that the professional inspects the work, there is a possibility that the contractor in question may in future not do the works properly. Here, Beltec did not owe the claimant a duty to warn. It was AIMS, and not the claimants, who had retained Beltec to visit the site to see what AIMS had done in relation to the initial pin. Beltec advised that the pin should be redone and resent AIMS the drawings; however, there was no danger at this stage. The court held that, while generally it is the responsibility of the engineer or architect  to design the permanent works and the contractor’s responsibility to construct the temporary works required to build the permanent works, it will always be necessary to consider what services the professional is engaged to provide. Here, it was noted that Beltec’s design provided a precise sequence of work which, if followed, would have resulted in the basement being created without any significant damage to the structure above. The conclusion was that nothing in Beltec’s design should have prevented AIMS from working in a reasonably safe way.Sarah Strange is a senior associate in the construction and engineering team at international law firm Taylor Wessinglast_img read more

Alstom opens UK train refurbishment plant

first_imgUK: What Alstom describes as ‘the largest and most sophisticated’ rolling stock refurbishment facility in the UK was officially opened in Widnes on June 29 by Lord Prior of Brampton, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.At its new 13 000 m2 plant, Alstom is due to begin work shortly on a €28m contract to repaint the 56 Class 390 Pendolino trainsets operated by Virgin Trains West Coast, with the first trainset already delivered to Widnes. The 80-strong repainting team have mostly been recruited from the Liverpool city region and the surrounding area, and includes five apprentices. Alstom said ‘Industry 4.0’ features of the contract include the use of virtual reality painting simulators to train the staff. ‘This new centre for manufacturing will grow local skills, create hundreds of jobs both in Widnes and across the entire UK rail supply chain’, said Lord Brampton. ‘This long-term investment marks Alstom’s commitment to the future of the sector in the UK.’‘Alstom is committed to the UK and this area’, said Gian-Luca Erbacci, Senior Vice-President of Alstom in Europe. ‘We want this to be just the start of our story in Widnes’, he added, noting that Alstom had already made a commitment to build new rolling stock for the UK market at Widnes, if it were successful in tenders such as Transport for London’s Deep Tube Upgrade Programme (formerly known as New Tube for London).last_img read more

Bajaj, Angkutan Beroda Tiga Yang Melegenda

first_imgSiapa sih yang tak kenal dengan Bajaj? Kendaraan roda tiga ini sebenarnya bukanlah nama kendaraan, namun sebuah perusahaan bernama PT Bajaj Auto. Kendaraan yang berasal dari India ini masuk ke Indonesia sejak tahun 1970an atau tepatnya 1975. Uniknya bajaj pertama kali masuk ke Jakarta yang saat itu sudah menjadi ibukota Negara Indonesia untuk menggantikan becak yang eksis tahun 1963.Dengan masuknya bajaj ini, Gubernur DKI Jakarta saaat itu Ali Sadikin memiliki niat untuk memodernisasikan Jakarta dan menganggap becak bukanlah hal yang modern. Tak hanya untuk memodernkan kota Jakarta, becak juga waktu itu di anggap membuat macet Jakarta. Sehingga saat bajaj masuk ke Jakarta di anggap pas untuk menggantikan era becak.Bajaj di Jakarta saat pertama kali keluar menggunakan mesin 2 tak dan berkembang denngan cepat karena menggunakan mesin yang bandel dan lebih baik dari sebelumnya. Bajaj hanya menampung penumpang 2 orang dewasa dan satu anak kecil. Namun, Bajaj oranye yang pertama kali hadir di Jakarta, tempat duduk di pengemudi lebih panjang sehingga, terkadang ada penumpang yang duduk dengan supir bajajnya.Tak hanya itu, minimnya tempat duduk membuat penumpang di dalam Bajaj hanya bisa 3 orang tidak lebih. Namun, dengan bentuk yang unik ini, justru bajaj bisa menerobos kemacetan. Tak hanya bentuk Bajaj yang unik, kemudi supir yang berentuk seperti kemudi motor ini pun menjadi salah satu daya tarik Bajaj. Anda yang tinggal di Jakarta pastilah sudah terbiasa dengan Bajaj, apalagi dengan suaranya yang memekakan telingga. Bunyi seperti “kaleng rombeng” kalau orang Jakarta bilang, bukan hanya menyakitkan telinga tapi sudah menjadi satu ciri yang khas dan Anda pasti kenal yang lewat depan rumah dipastikan Bajaj. Ini dikarenakan tidak ada angkutan umum di Jakarta yang memiliki bunyi khas seperti itu.Bajaj yang ada di Jakarta sejak tahun 1975 ini, menggunakan bahan bakar bensin (premium) dan bertransformasi di tahun 2007 dengan warna biru yang melambangkan Bajaj tersebut menggunakan bahan bakar gas. Namun, masih juga menggunakan campuran premium sebagai bahan bakarnya. Pada Bajaj biru ini, bunyi berisik sudah tidak terdengar, suara lebih halus dan tidak bisa dibedakan dengan kendaraan lain bila lewat depan rumah Anda.Adanya penggantian bahan bakar pada Bajaj, agar lebih ramah lingkungan untuk mengurangi polusi udara yang ada di Jakarta. Mesin yang digunakan juga sudah 4 tak dengan semua lampu berfungsi seperti sein yang dulu di Bajaj oranye tidak berfungsi. Satu hal yang tak boleh terlupakan, setiap Anda menaiki Bajaj, pasti melihat tanda Kotamadya Bajaj tersebut.Namun, ternyata Bajaj tak hanya ada di Jakarta saja melainkan ada di Banjarmasin dan Pekanbaru. Sayangnya Bajaj di dua kota besar tersebut tak terlalu mencolok seperti di Jakarta. Hal ini terlihat di Jakarta saja sampai ada Sitkom tentang keluarga supir Bajaj dengan judul Bajaj Bajuri. Sitkom yang mengisahkan kehidupan seorang supir Bajaj (diperankan Mat Solar) bernama Bajuri bersama sang istri agak tulalit bernama Oneng (dipernkan Rieke Diah Pitaloka) dan mertua yang mata duitan, Emak (Nanik Wijaya). Sitkom ini sempat tayang di salah satu stasiun televisi swasta tahun 2002-2007 dan sukses penayangannya hingga dibuatkan film layar lebar dengan pemerannya bukanlah pemeran di televisi.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedJamnalal Bajaj, Sang Pendiri Bajaj Yang Terlahir dari Keluarga Marjinal05/09/2017In “Analisa Angkutan”Bemo Tereliminasi, Bajaj Qute Jadi Solusi27/07/2017In “Darat”Bajaj “Bapake, “Jadi Andalan Patroli Polres Cilacap24/08/2018In “Darat”last_img read more

Ada 9 Hal dari Penumpang Yang Tak Disukai Oleh Awak Kabin

first_img1. Menggunakan toilet saat boardingToilet di pesawat biasanya berada di bagian depan atau belakang pesawat. Tapi, sebagai penumpang baiknya gunakan pikiran Anda saat kapan yang tepat menggunakannya. “Saya ingin penumpang berhenti menggunakan toilet saat boarding. Ada kamar mandi besar di terminal yang bisa digunakan sambil menunggu dua jam sebelum penerbangan mereka di lakukan,” ujar Cherise Stacy salah seorang awak kabin Jet Blue.2. Memilih kantong muntah untuk sampahAwak kabin bukanlah asisten rumah tangga atau ibu Anda yang akan terus-terusan membersihkan kotoran Anda. “Saya ingin penumpang berhenti menggunakan kantong muntah sebagai tempat sampah pribadi. Ini untuk muntah!” Ujar Stacy.3. Mengajukan pertanyaaan tak layakDi setiap pesawat tepatnya di belakang kursi penumpang selalu ada kartu menu. “Ini seperti pergi ke restoran dan kapan pelayan datang dan seseorang bertanya apa yang mereka dapatkan jika belum pernah terbang sebelumnya. Berhentilah meminta susu cokelat, Coke dan cookies, atau hal lain yang memang tidak ditawarkan,” kata Stacy.4. Menggunakan meja untuk barang kotorSebagai penumpang, banyak hal yang bisa Anda lakukan di tempat duduk. Ini termasuk membaca, bermain game bahkan menonton tv. Membersihkan popok bayi? Memang tidak banyak yang menggunakan meja untuk mengganti popok bayi mereka. “Jika mengingat itu saya hanya akan muntah,” kata mantan seorang awak kabin Lisa Dinsmoor.5. Bau Tak Sedap dari PenumpangKabin pesawat bukanlah kamar Anda sendiri, tetapi ruang publik. Melepaskan sepatu pada penerbangan jarak jauh sangat memungkinkan dilakukan. Tapi jika Anda memiliki kaki yang bau ini akan menjadi permasalahan bagi penumpang lain dan awak kabin.“Suatu saat bekerja di kelas satu, saya harus membawa selimut ke seorang pria dan memintanya untuk membungkusnya di kakinya karena baunya sangat buruk,” kata Dinsmoor.6. Berharap awak kabin tahu isi kepala AndaJangan berharap awak kabin tahu keinginan Anda. Jadi baiknya beritahu apa yang Anda butuhkan sebelum mereka berjalan meninggalkan Anda.“Saya benci bertanya kepada seorang penumpang, apakah mereka mau minum kopi dan memberikannya kepada mereka. Kemudian mereka berteriak kepada Anda bahwa mereka menginginkan krim dan gula di dalamnya.” ujar Dinsmoor.7. Ruang sisa pada bagasi kompartemenSaat Anda mencoba memasukkan tas di kompartemen yang penuh, bukan di bawah kursi, awak kabin bukan tidak menghargainya tetapi mencoba untuk memberikan kepada pemilik untuk diletakkan dibawah. “Jika seseorang memiliki barang yang dipaksakan masuk ke kompartemen atas, tidak perlu khawatir karena saya akan bertanya itu barang milik siapa tanpa malu,” ujar Dinsmoor.8. Mengabaikan peringatanDalam suatu penerbangan, ada saja penumpang yang kerap mengabaikan peringatan, sebut saja tidak mengindahkan peringatan untuk mematikan ponsel sesaat sebelum take off. Lainnya upaya menolak menegakkan sandaran kursi sebelum landing atau saat cuaca buruk. Dalam kasus ini, beberapa awak kabin kerap bersitegang dengan penumpang yang keras kepala.Baca juga: Benarkah Penumpang Kelas Ekonomi Kurang Perhatian? Ini Kata Awak Kabin9. Bersikap kasar“Saya berharap penumpang berhenti bersikap kasar satu dengan yang lainnya. Ya, kursi sempit, tapi itu tidak memberi siapapun hak untuk membuat frustasi mereka pada orang lain,” kata Heather Poole, petugas penerbangan yang juga penulis New York Times.Poole berharap agar penumpang berhenti panik dan belajar bagaimana mengekspresikan keinginan dan kebutuhan mereka. “Saya mungkin akan sedikit lebih bersedia untuk melampui panggilan tugas jika mereka meneriaki saya terlebih dahulu. Saya berharap, lebih banyak penumpang akan mengenal saya dengan kontak mata, tolong dan terima kasih juga akan baik, saya juga berharap penumpang juga bisa mengingat saya juga orang, walaupun saya adalah awak kabin.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedInilah yang Diharapkan Seorang Awak Kabin dari Penumpang!22/01/2019In “Featured”Inilah 14 Tugas Awak Kabin Pesawat Yang Jarang Diketahui18/12/2017In “Bandara”Adakah Yang Berbeda Antara Pramugari dan Awak Kabin?21/06/2017In “Domestik” Sumber: Pemikiran Anda tentang pekerjaan awak kabin yang sangat mudah tentu saja keliru, pasalnya pekerjaan awak kabin udara  sejatinya penuh risiko dan menantang.
