What Would You Like to See Built at Old Hi-Lite Diner Site?

Along with the TD Bank, builder is asking for ideas from the community.

After months of delays, the construction on is under way at the old Hi-Lite Diner site on the corner of Old Town Road and Route 347 in Port Jefferson Station.

Developer Jim Tsunis said that a 14,000 square foot office building planned for the site adjacent to the bank is still open for debate. Tsunis went to the Port Jefferson-Terryville Civic Association meeting last week asking civic members for input into what the community would like to see built there.

Ideas bandied around have been typical of the corridor from a drug store to a fast food joint.

There's no less than 12 places to get ice cream/yogurt in Port Jeff. And more ethnic restaurants in the area than I can order from in a month. As for "this economy," it doesn't seem to be an issue at Outback, where a burger costs twelve bucks and the place looks packed every Thursday through Sunday night. I for one think there NEEDS to be another bank in the area. The rest have been robbed so many times I'm bored of reading the stories.

Do you have any idea of how big that piece of property is or the parking requirements for a bank or restaurant?

No need for anything there, we have too many of everything here already!!! Stop freakin building already!!!! Better yet, open up a big hole so we can sweep all the lowlife's in the area in there.
