The Beechwood Organization, ranked at the forefront of privately-owned residential homebuilders nationwide, is one of the largest developers of single family and multifamily housing in New York State, and is Long Island’s largest homebuilder and developer of sophisticated lifestyle communities.
Beechwood has submitted an application for a change of zone for the property located at the corner of Manor Road and Jericho Turnpike in Elwood to develop a “for-sale” community.
The community is intended to be comprised of 385 residences spread over 55 acres.
The community will include a spacious clubhouse with amenities such as a fitness center, pool, game room, pickleball courts, ponds and expansive landscaping.

Dear Town of Huntington Resident and Neighbor,
As part of our commitment to keeping you and the Elwood community stakeholders informed about our application to the Town of Huntington for Country Pointe Elwood, we will continue to provide updates on this website.
As we advised in June of 2022, The Beechwood Organization had submitted a new zone change application to the Town which addressed feedback that had been received from the community. The Town Board had reviewed the application and by a majority vote on November 3, 2022, issued a Positive Declaration requiring a Full SEQRA ( State Environmental Quality Review Act) Review and requiring us to prepare and submit a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).
A full SEQRA review is the most thorough option the Town has to review the impacts of any proposal, and we welcome that thorough study. Typically, a DEIS will include relevant information about the potential long and short term social and economic impacts of the proposed community, as well as any associated environmental impacts, as well as possible mitigation measures. In order to assess these potential impacts, during the SEQRA process, our professionals and experts will be obtaining and analyzing data in numerous areas, including traffic, the environment, air and water quality, school enrollment, taxes, waste management, effect on local businesses, impact to historic sites, housing, and aesthetics. As part of the process, our professionals will also reach out to local and other governmental agencies for relevant information.
During this process, we will reach out to the community, civic associations, and local stakeholders to share information and listen to their input and feedback. If you would like to be contacted about this application, please submit your information below. We will continue to update this website with new information so please check in periodically.
