With its granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a resident lounge with WiFi, and a seasonal ice skating rink, Wyandanch Village offers many amenities that the rich enjoy but without the luxury price.
Located at 10 and 40 Station Drive overlooking the Long Island Rail Road station, the apartments offer residents access to a gym and eventually will be only a short walking distance from a wellness center.
“A community health care center will be moving to a brand new facility within the same building as the YMCA,” says Kerry Gillick-Goldberg, communications liaison for the Wyandanch Plaza Association. “The goal is for health professionals to work hand in hand with the Y to benefit the residents of Wyandanch and the surrounding communities.”
Bozzuto Management Company operates the 177- unit residential community of studio, one-, two and three-bedroom apartments, which range from $950 to $2,500.
“We’re an energy-efficient LEED Silver certified multifamily housing complex with views of open areas, the township and the new Wyandanch train station, which is currently under construction,” says Larry Siefert, property manager for Wyandanch Village.
Some 70 percent of the units are set aside for affordable housing applicants.
“The rent is restricted based on where the applicant ranks on the income spectrum,” says Nicole Massa, leasing manager for Wyandanch Village.
“We include employment, disability and other income sources to determine
All units, regardless of the amount paid in rent, are created equal. The development is currently at full capacity with a one-year wait list for affordable apartments and first-come-first-served availability for market-rate rental units.
Opened in 2015, Wyandanch Village is owned by the Albanese Organization, a privately held and family-run residential and commercial real estate developer based in Garden City.
“Long-term local residents, along with then-Babylon Town Supervisor Steve Bellone, spearheaded this development,” says Gillick-Goldberg. “The town selected the Albanese Organization as master developer in 2011 based on the firm’s proposal and long-standing reputation of quality developments.”
Bellone has since moved on to become Suffolk County executive.
In early January 2018, construction will commence on a third apartment building that will include an additional 125 units for rent.
“The buildings all feature apartments with an abundance of natural light
and park or expansive views,” says Massa. “In the summer, there are activities like yoga and concerts and in the winter, the town operates an ice skating rink.”
Storefronts on the ground level include a New York Community Bank branch, Domino’s Pizza, T-Mobile, KB Department Store and 7-Eleven Big Red Beauty Supply, with additional stores coming next year.
