Commercial real estate broker Paul Adler addressed Goshen Village Board members at their June 10 meeting regarding a 10.4-acre parcel located at the entrance to the Legoland New York Theme Park, which is now under development.

Adler, with Rand Commercial, proposed two hotels, a service station and a restaurant for the property. Calling it a “symbiotic relationship with Legoland,” he noted that major entertainment parks always have hotels and service stations nearby.

He proposed two moderately priced hotels, each with 150 rooms, possibly a Quick Chek service center and a family-style restaurant.

Currently the property is a nonprofit, tax-exempt parcel. Repurposing the parcel for commercial use would put it back on the tax rolls, said Adler. He said the highway commercial property would have its own entrance and wouldn’t interfere with the Glen Arden assisted living facility in any way.

The hotels would be built on higher elevation sites for visibility and the service station and restaurant on lower sites.

All utilities — gas, water and electricity — reach the property.
