Magee project will rebuild docks

WATKINS GLEN—Magee Point Landing Associates is trying to get permission from the Commissioner of General Services to rebuild three docks in Seneca Lake.
This includes two 60 foot long by six foot wide docks and a 114 foot long by 48 foot wide covered dock/boathouse.  The application will also include plans to install riprap, stabilizing the shore for access to the lakefront.  All of this is at the Magee Point Landing lakeshore.
Project Manager Bill Bennedict explained those docks already existed, but were in need to repair and replacement.  He added that Magee Point Landing got the permit from the Army Corps of Engineers for the dock work at Thanksgiving, but it also needs approval from the state.  Bennedict said this has to go through this legal process for the replacement docks because New York owns the lake.
The 114 foot long dock/boathouse is in the early stages of being replaced on the lakefront near the building, but can’t be completed now until the application is approved.  Bennedict said it was a 50-year-old structure.
“I took it apart and it needed more than originally considered,” he explained.
The two other docks are south of the boathouse on the property.  He added those docks were old and needed to be completely replaced as well.
The Magee Point Landing project intends to turn the former water intake plant into apartments and a restaurant.  Bennedict said it took eight years to buy the property and two and a half years to prepare it for construction.  He added that the plan is to complete the work this summer.
Bennedict added this project is consistent with the village’s waterfront plan.
