Mineola, N.Y. – Mill Creek Residential, an apartment developer, investor and operator, has completed vertical construction and launched online leasing for a new luxury rental community on Long Island.
Modera Mineola is a 275-unit apartment community located within two blocks of the Mineola Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) transit center. Through developing Modera Mineola, Mill Creek is working to ensure meeting the renter demand for apartment homes with quality amenities, proximity to vibrant commercial and cultural offerings and easy access to New York City for working professionals.
“What began in 2008 as an idea to revitalize Mineola’s downtown by building residential opportunities is now complete,” said Mineola Mayor Scott P. Strauss. “Along the way, Mineola residents have embraced Smart Growth concepts, ushering in a new era of planned suburban development and re-visioning.”
A modern nod to classic New York, pre-war-style architecture, Modera Mineola will feature a contemporary living experience with a state-of-the-art clubroom including the latest audio and visual technologies and billiards, a 24-hour club-quality fitness center with the latest gym equipment and a yoga room and a fully equipped business center. Outdoor amenities include two landscaped courtyards, a resort-style pool with a sundeck, outdoor kitchen with grills, a bocce court, and an outdoor fireplace. The design and construction of the property highlights numerous environmentally friendly features and is designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification through the U.S. Green Building Council.
“Modera Mineola has been designed to provide a premium living experience in Long Island’s most exciting area,” said Russell Tepper, Mill Creek’s senior managing director, Northeast. “Historically, there has not been a significant amount of apartment development in Nassau County, but we know that working professionals, singles and empty nesters have been waiting a long time for new, luxury rental options, and we’re excited to contribute to the revival of downtown Mineola by providing these new housing options.”
All studio, one- and two-bedroom homes will showcase upscale finishes, wood plank-style flooring, wall-to-wall carpeting in bedrooms, spa-like bathrooms with quartz countertops, and under-mounted sinks. The apartments’ gourmet kitchens contain 42-inch upper cabinets, movable chef islands, quartz counter tops, EnergyStar stainless steel appliances, and subway-tile backsplashes. Floor plans have generous walk-in closet space and all apartments have full-size washers and dryers. Select residences will include balconies, dens and lofts.
Services and features of the property, such as automated package acceptance, a dog-wash station, bike storage, and a multi-level parking garage accessible from the building’s interior, will minimize life’s everyday troubles and offer utmost leisure enjoyment. The Mineola LIRR Station with express access to Manhattan and Brooklyn is just a short walk away.
“Today’s renter wants to live a convenient lifestyle with multi-modal options to places of work and play, but he or she also wants to be able to retreat to a modern and comfortable home,” said Jamie Stover, Mill Creek’s vice president of Northeast development. “Modera Mineola embodies the premier ‘work-live-play’ experience–while offering exceptional access to New York City–that renters in Nassau County have long been waiting for.”
Mill Creek anticipates that renters will be able to move into Modera Mineola starting in August. Visit www.moderamineola.com for more information.
