Press Release

Tours Now Available for Premium Apartments at an Exceptional Transit-Oriented Location


WEST HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — November 29, 2012 — Mill Creek Residential, a leading multifamily developer, investor and operator specializing in premier apartment communities across the U.S., today announced that its newest development, West 130, a transit-oriented luxury rental community, is open for leasing. The property is available for occupancy on December 1st.

VIP tours are now being offered at West 130, located at 130 Hempstead Ave. in West Hempstead, New York.

“The Town of Hempstead is ecstatic about the opening of West 130, a beautiful ‘smart-growth’ luxury apartment community that will provide housing options for all residents, especially young professionals who commute to jobs in Manhattan, as the community is located adjacent to the West Hempstead Long Island Rail Road station,” said Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray. “The town was proud to partner with Mill Creek Residential Trust on this project, creating a groundbreaking transit-oriented development zone, which made it possible for desirable and attractive residences to replace a blighted eyesore known as the Courtesy Hotel. The West 130 luxury apartment community is restoring luster to West Hempstead’s downtown, as well as providing needed housing for many town residents.”

West 130 is a four-story building with private underground garage parking for residents and features 150 upscale residences that offer a mix of one, two and three bedroom layouts.

The apartment homes feature 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, nine- and ten-foot ceilings and large walk-in closets. Many floor plan options include lofts, dens and outdoor private patios.

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 with cardio theatre, and a beautifully landscaped courtyard with an outdoor saltwater pool, sun deck, and outdoor fireplace.

The community is conveniently located adjacent to the West Hempstead Long Island Rail Road station. The building is also designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification. The new development was awarded a Smart Growth award in 2009 by Vision Long Island for its role in revitalizing the West Hempstead neighborhood. Beyond the immediate neighborhood, West 130 is easily accessible to the country’s major centers of employment, recreational, shopping and entertainment destinations, and educational institutions including Adelphi and Hofstra Universities.

“West 130 offers residents convenient living in the heart of Nassau County and will attract those seeking a mix of suburban and urban lifestyle experiences. With an exceptional location adjacent to the West Hempstead LIRR station, high-quality apartment finishes and extensive community amenities we are confident West 130 will appeal to a broad spectrum of prospective renters on Long Island.,” says Maria Rigopoulos, Managing Director for MCRT.

“The project would not have been possible without the local community and Town of Hempstead’s joint vision for revitalization and transit-oriented development at this location. It is a great example of a successful public-private partnership,” added Rigopoulos.  For leasing information or to learn more about West 130, please visit West130.com.
