A sleek new office building is set to be constructed in Port Washington.
Plans to build a 72,457 square foot facility at 3 Seaview Blvd. were approved by the North Hempstead town board Jan. 29 following a public hearing at Town Hall.
Submitted by Ivy Enterprises, Inc., the site plan includes construction of a new warehouse and office space on a three-acre vacant parcel in the Seaview Planned Industrial Park for Ivy, a nail and cosmetic supply company.
About 60 employees are expected to be employed at the new location, according to an attorney presenting the site plan to the board.
"The question is whether or not this site can hold the parking required by the applicant," said Supervisor Jon Kaiman before voting in favor of the plan last week.
Upon recommendation by the town planning department, the board approved the site plan, 7-0.
Ivy Enterprises currently shares headquarters space with Kiss Enterprises in Port Washington. Ivy is a subsidiary of Kiss, the world's largest manufacturer and distributor of professional quality nail products.
