Developer Tommy Huang bought Klein Farm in 2004 amid public outcry against his plans to build private houses on the land. He has been unable to do much with the 61,000-square-foot property because it is located in a preservation district that prevents building or alterations to the structure.
Huang looks to sell Klein Farm for $5M
The listing broker, Joann Lee, president of Good Choice Realty in Great Neck, is asking $5.5 million for the property. She said Tuesday that the farm had been listed for sale "not long ago."
As far as whether there has been interest in the farm from potential buyers, Lee said, "not yet."
The asking price could be a hurdle for some buyers.
"There's been some talk in the community about getting the city to buy it, but it's just not feasible" with budget cuts in place, said Christina Katsanos, chief of staff to City Councilman David Weprin (D-Hollis).
Really? How are we going to break the news to Helen Marshall that there is no money in the budget for purchase of farm property?
