Small changes to plans for a retail project under way on Pike Street in Matittuck are being considered today by the Southold Planning Board.

The board is reviewing a request for changes to an already approved site plan for the project by T.K. Alpha, LLC, according to an agenda for the Planning Board’s public work session.

T.K. Alpha is controlled by Edward Broidy, a real estate developer from Southampton.

In an interview Monday morning, Mr. Broidy said the project is underway at the site, with the footing of the foundation already in.

The site plan calls for the construction of a 2,500-square-foot, mixed-use building consisting of a 1,100-square-foot retail store and a 1,400-square-foot restaurant at 535 Pike Street, the agenda reads. A 600-square-foot building that had been at the property has already been razed.

The changes being considered involve moving utilities within the building to allow for more space.

An earlier version of the project plans had been met with resistance by local residents and town officials in 2011, when Mr. Broidy had planned to also build apartments on a second story. He said he’s since scrapped the apartment component of the project.

At the town’s request, he said, T.K. Alpha will be constructing the building so that a second floor could be added in the future, though he said he had no plans to do so himself.

The Planning Board’s public work session is at 2:30 p.m. at the Southold Town Annex Board Room, on the second floor of Capital One Bank on Main Road in Southold.

Also on the agenda:

• Planning Board members will review comments from the final inspection of the approved site plan for Terry’s Farm in Orient. The Route 25 site plan is for the construction of a 4,320-square-foot agricultural storage building on a 32-acre agricultural parcel.

• Premium Wine Group’s request for an extension of final approval for their amended site plan will be reviewed by Planning Board members. The revised site plan is for the construction of a new 5,380-square-foot building on a 3.6–acre parcel on Cox Neck Road in Mattituck.

The Southold Town Planning Board’s next regular meeting is set to take place Jan. 13 at 4:30 p.m. at Southold Town Hall.
