A Monsey developer made the latest in a recent string of big land purchases in and around the village, paying $11.2 million last month for 84 acres of mostly vacant land off Route 208.
The property is the site of a closed driving range and boxing gym, surrounded by woods and close to the busy interchange where Route 208 meets Route 17. Its proximity to Route 17 had made the driving-range site a contender for a casino resort in 2014 when casino operators were competing for state licenses.
The owner, David Plotkin, had listed the land for sale for $8.5 million in 2017, according to previous reporting by the Times Herald-Record. A deed transfer filed this week with the Orange County Clerk's Office indicates the newly formed Orange Industrial LLC paid him almost $3 million more than that for the property on May 13.
