Modular homes open in Hempstead
Village Lofts, the first modular multifamily rental project in Nassau County, Long Island, opened for business last week.
Developed by La Cité Development, the 29-unit project in Hempstead offers both market-rate and workforce housing options with modern amenities and a luxurious feel.
The complex is comprised of one and two-bedroom units, including two duplex apartments. Market rate one-bedroom units start at $1,450; two-bedroom units start at $1,995.
Douglas Elliman’s Maria Boafo, Matthew Korman, and Orlando Frade are the exclusive leasing and marketing agents for the project.
“Village Lofts is going to provide a vital housing option for a lot of people in this community. In addition to bringing more people to the area,” said Dan Bythewood, president of La Cité Development LLC.
“There is nothing of this caliber at this price point on the market here. This project is a first for Nassau County, and I think it’s going to be a benchmark of success for future developments,” said Elliman’s Matthew Korman. The gated community offers homes with modern floor plans, wide plank maple wood floors, high ceilings, over-sized hi-tech windows, GE Energy Star appliances and a sleek, contemporary feel. Each unit also comes with one free parking space.

The Paramount offers studio, one- and two-bedroom residences with monthly rents starting at $1,700. Immediate occupancy is available.
