Mill Creek's Modera Mineola opens for move-ins

Mineola, NY Mill Creek Residential, one of the nation's leading apartment investors and operators, has begun initial move-ins at Modera Mineola — Long Island's newest transit-oriented, premium apartment community. The company completed vertical construction on the community and started pre-leasing in April.

"Today's apartment residents are clamoring for the downtown living experience in suburban communities that offer convenient access to a mix of urban and suburban lifestyle experiences," said Jamie Stover, Mill Creek's vice president of development for New York and Connecticut. "Residents of Modera Mineola are close to employment, shopping and entertainment destinations on Long Island, but will also enjoy access to a walkable downtown and exceptional mass transit access from the Mineola LIRR station just two blocks away."

Situated in the County Seat of Nassau County and within two blocks of the Mineola Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) transit center — Modera Mineola offers residents proximity to an array of commercial and cultural offerings while providing easy access to New York City destinations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens and other regional destinations via LIRR's frequent and express service in Mineola.

Modera Mineola offers amenities tailored to suit the lifestyle of today's renter and exceed their expectations of comfort and convenience. The amenities includes a state-of-the-art clubroom with the latest in audio and visual technologies, including a nine-screen media wall; parlor games, including billiards; a 24-hour club-quality fitness center, featuring top-of-the-line gym equipment and a yoga studio equipped with the latest in on-demand fitness classes; a fully equipped business lounge; and two outdoor courtyards, including a resort inspired outdoor pool, outdoor fireplace, outdoor kitchens with barbecue grills, and bocce ball court.

All of Modera Mineola's upscale homes will feature high quality finishes including wood plank-style flooring, wall-to-wall carpeting in bedrooms, spa-like bathrooms with quartz countertops, and under-mounted sinks. The Gourmet kitchens include 42-inch upper cabinets, movable chef islands, quartz countertops, EnergyStar® stainless steel appliances, and subway-tile backsplashes. Floor plans include ample walk-in closet space and all apartment homes will have full-size washers and dryers. Select residences will offer balconies, dens and lofts.

A number of additional features at Modera Mineola are designed to minimize life's everyday hassles and offer maximum leisure enjoyment. These include automated package delivery acceptance and notification, a pet-spa and wash station, bicycle storage, and a multi-level parking garage. The design and construction of Modera Mineola features many environmentally friendly features and is designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification through the U. S. Green Building Council.

"My administration has made it a priority to assist families, seniors, and young adults with transit-oriented housing options," said County Executive Edward P. Mangano. "Since taking office, we have helped create 1,400 new rental housing opportunities in Nassau County. Modera Mineola, in the heart of Mineola, brings much-needed apartment housing to the neighborhood while generating millions in economic benefits for our local economy."

In a statement to new residents of Modera Mineola, Mineola Mayor Scott Strauss said, "We congratulate Mill Creek on the successful completion of Modera Mineola. We welcome all our new neighbors to the Mineola community. I know that you will find our Village to be a warm and embracing community. You will play a special role in making our Downtown one of the most vibrant and exciting places on Long Island. I look forward to meeting with you in the coming months. Again, welcome to Mineola."
