MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Mount Kisco developers are tired of waiting for his project to be approved.

HFZ Capital, the developers behind a 129-unit senior housing complex at 270 Kisco Avenue filed a lawsuit against the Village/Town of Mount Kisco, Planning Board, Village Board, and Village Attorney Whitney Singleton claiming their approval process has been wrongfully stalled.

Mount Kisco plans to sell the land to the developers for $5 million, as part of an agreement where the developers would demolish a senior facility on Mountain Avenue and deed the land back to the village.

Opponents of the plan have asked that the land be preserved and said the land was unsuitable for the project while supporters have said the development would put millions back on the tax rolls.

The developers claim they have an agreement with the village to purchase the property, giving the village a $1.5 million down payment in 2007, and that village officials are using unlawful delays while reviewing the site plan.
