The Hills in East Quogue is a master-planned, seasonal resort development by Discovery Land Company, the premier resort builder in the world.
Discovery Land Company’s core philosophy is to enhance the natural character and cultural heritage of each property it develops in order to create a unique sense of place that truly captures the innate spirit of the land itself. In East Quogue, The Hills development will preserve 424 acres of land in East Quogue.
The Hills will fit in with the nature of the community by respecting the history of the local farms, the beauty of the pine barrens and the charm of East Quogue. Throughout the development and operation of The Hills, Discovery Land Company will demonstrate an unparalleled commitment to environmental sensitivity through preservation and protection of natural resources and the adoption of the most advanced sustainability measures. In addition to the preservation of 424 acres of land, Discovery Land Company is committed to protecting our drinking water and surface water quality in the area by the deployment of:
–a cutting-edge sewage treatment plant that can also be used by members of the community
-a local water recycling and purification effort using the golf course and grounds to remove excess nutrients from area groundwater
-$1,000,000 septic subsidy for locals to upgrade their septic systems
– An advanced waste water system at the East Quogue Elementary School
-the preservation of an additional 33 acres at the headwaters of Weesuck Creek, avoiding development in a sensitive area
-the retirement of 30 pine barrens credits to avoid additional development in the area
-$450,000 in bay restoration efforts including shellfish restocking. eel grass replanting and research to improve surface water quality
The Hills development will also support the local community and economy through significant expected tax revenues of over $7.6 million per year, local employment, significant donations and contributions to the East Quogue School District, including a redeveloped playground and fields. This Summer resort is not expected to add any additional students to the school, based on the demographics of Discovery clientele who purchase their resort properties as a second, third or fourth home, which will result in a significant tax windfall for the school district.
