Mill Creek Residential Opens Luxury Multifamily in Nassau County
- Dec 18, 2012
West Hempstead, N.Y.—Mill Creek Residential, a multifamily developer, investor and operator, has opened West 130, a transit-oriented luxury rental community in the Long Island town of West Hempstead, N.Y.
Located at 130 Hempstead Ave., the community is located adjacent to the West Hempstead Long Island Rail Road station.
“When you think of West 130, first and foremost you understand its importance as a transit-oriented location. It’s centrally located and you can hop on the train out the front door and be in Manhattan in 50 minutes,” Jamie Stover, Mill Creek Residential’s vice president of the Northeast division, tells MHN. “Plus, there is access to other attractions and destination, whether it be employment, entertainment or educational.”
West 130 is a four-story building, which features 150 upscale residences offering a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. It also includes private underground garage parking for its residents.
Amenities in the units include modern upscale chef kitchens with islands and pendant lighting, 42-inch cabinets, wood plank style flooring, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, full-size washer and dryers and large walk-in closets.
“The property offers numerous on-site amenities, including an inviting clubhouse, a game room with multiple flat screen televisions, a business center, the latest in fitness equipment and a beautiful landscaped courtyard with an outdoor saltwater pool, sun deck, and outdoor fireplace,” Maria Rigopoulos, Mill Creek Residential’s managing director, tells MHN. “It offers residents convenient living in the heart of Nassau County and will attract those seeking a mix of suburban and urban lifestyle experiences.”
The building was designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification and was awarded a Smart Growth award in 2009 by Vision Long Island for its role in revitalizing the West Hempstead neighborhood.
“The site we are on was a former motel that the civic association considered a blight to that immediate area,” Rigopoulos says. “The community and municipality all came together to redevelop the area in a way that made sense. This is now a gateway to the hamlet of West Hempstead.”
As of Nov. 1, Mill Creek’s portfolio comprised 40 communities totaling 10,814 apartment homes that were operating, under construction or in planning.
