The Stonebridge village condo is in an attractive neighbourhood on the south coast of the island, but the residents are still being priced out of the area.
The owners of the Condo park are planning to demolish the structure and replace it with a high-rise apartment complex.
According to local media, the new development would be the first in the area and would offer residents the opportunity to live on the beach.
“The developers say it is the first condominium development in the South Island, and we will be able to provide a lifestyle in the village of Stonebridge,” the residents’ association said in a statement.
A spokesperson for Stonebridge’s city council said the developers’ plan is not in line with the island’s development policies.
“There are several housing developments that have been proposed in the Stone Bridge community, including Stonebridge City Council, but none have been approved,” the spokesperson said.
New York City Councilmember Jumaane Williams said the village was “a huge part of the community” and the city was “looking forward to the development”.
“I’m thrilled to see the village condontrols in Condor Park and the opportunity that Stonebridge has given to the island,” she said.
“The city has made a commitment to support the village, and I look forward to working with them to achieve that.”
A spokeswoman for the StoneBridge City Council said the development was not being considered in conjunction with the city’s ongoing work with the local community.
Earlier this year, the Stonebridges announced plans to build a 1,300-square-metre mixed-use development with retail and residential space in the nearby Condo Village.
