"With assistance from the Hempstead IDA, we were able to jointly work with the Town and community to permanently close the former Courtesy Hotel site, which had been a blighting influence on the local community for years. The IDA's economic benefits program enabled us to transform a blighted parcel into an exciting, transit-oriented high-quality apartment community."

Description

West 130 is a new transit-oriented apartment community, currently under construction on a 3-acre infill site located in the Town of Hempstead, adjacent to the West Hempstead Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) Station. The community will consist of 150 apartment homes in one 4-story podium-style building; approximately 5,000 square feet of leasing and amenity space; and garage parking. The community amenities include an inviting resident lounge with fireplace, game/theatre room with multiple flat screen televisions, coffee bar, conference room, i-lounge, beautifully landscaped courtyards, outdoor fireplace, and an outdoor swimming pool with sundeck. The apartment homes will feature modern floor plans, 9-foot high ceilings, gourmet kitchens with islands, 42-inch cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, full-size washer and dryers, and large walk-in closets.

The West 130 apartment homes will provide much needed modern and high-quality rental apartments for Long Island's young working professionals and empty-nesters. West 130's convenient location is just minutes away from central Nassau County's thriving employment, shopping and entertainment centers.
