A new Audi dealership is being proposed for Montauk Highway in Water Mill.
A “pre-application” has been filed with Southampton Town for a plan to combine two lots on the north side of the road.
The two parcels, located at 51 and 55 Montauk Highway, would total 94,006 square feet within the highway business district. A vacant house on the property would be demolished to make way a 13,354-square-foot car dealership.
According to Southampton Town principal planner Clare Vail, the proposal is still in the early phases and once completed will be presented as a full application to the Town Planning Board.
A pre-submission conference about the application was held by the board last week as part of its monthly meeting. According to Ms. Vail, no one from the public has commented on the application at this point, and public hearings will be scheduled for a later date.
If approved, the new Audi Southampton will be located next to the Mini of Southampton dealership, across from the Princess Diner.
