Although the Lynbrook Board of Trustees said they are happy the vacant Tofu building has been cleared out and are excited for a Radiology center to potentially take its place, they are not quite set on the proposed design.
The village has been in talks since November with Zwanger-Pesiri, a Radiology practice which has nine locations on Long Island. The center provides physicians and patients with modern medical diagnostics in a “caring and compassionate environment,” according to their website.
Zwanger architect's Cathy Masci and Jack Rosebery visited the board at Tuesday night’s meeting with their designs.
“Our brand is high-tech, forward moving,” Masci said.
The building would be just the second that Zwanger has built from the ground up, with the first one being the current Merrick location, according to Masci.
The board expressed excitement and were impressed with the modern designs presented, but expressed some concerns.
“I think ultimately we would like to see a building that blends better with the surrounding buildings,” Mayor William Hendrick said.
Several board members added that they would like to see different angles of the building in photos, showing the high school in the background, and with other buildings on the block. They said they want the building to have a more "traditional" feel to it.
Zwanger-Pesiri has been invited back to present designs for the building at the March 5 board meeting.
