Hampshire Country Club has lost another round in its complicated battle with the Village of Mamaroneck.
An appeal of Hampshire’s lawsuit seeking $55 million in damages from the Village was thrown out in Federal Court last week. This upheld a previous ruling in March.
The Village was sued in 2014 after it refused to allow the club to build more than 100 condominiums on the property in Orienta. The real estate development firm alleged that the company was entitled to damages because the Village Board declined to change zoning laws to allow the club to develop a large condominium complex, and because the Village moved to enforce existing laws that prohibit commercial for-profit operations in Residential and Marine Recreational zones.
The Club is still pursuing a development plan that will build 44 single family homes and 66 townhouses on the property.
