Mineola Village Board Approves Smart-Growth Project

Transit-Oriented 192-Unit Rental Development Will Help Revitalize Downtown

Chris Coschignano, a Partner with the Firm, successfully represented a developer before the Mineola Village Board, which approved the construction of an apartment complex that will be built at the former site of an elementary school. The 192-unit rental apartment complex is a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), providing easy access to the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR).

Mill Creek Residential, a Dallas-based developer, sought to build the complex in the Village of Mineola. The plans call for the construction of two four-story apartments at the site of the former Corpus Christi Elementary School on Searing Avenue. The apartments would be TOD and located less than one mile from the Long Island Rail Road station. Amenities would include a courtyard, club room and gym. Each lease will include one parking spot.

More than a year ago, the church entered into a sales contract with Mill Creek Residential to purchase the former school and an adjacent property. The Corpus Christi Parish would use the sales to pay off debt owed to the Diocese of Rockville Centre.

Firm Partner John Farrell and Firm Associate Nicholas Cappadora joined Mr. Coschignano in representing Mill Creek Residential.

"This approval is a win-win-win for not just Mill Creek, Corpus Christi Church and the Diocese of Rockville Centre, but also for the residents of the Village of Mineola," Mr. Coschignano said. "The project represents a redevelopment of an unutilized property that will help to attract people to the village who will have easy access to the LIRR. It is a smart-growth project that is helping communities like Mineola transform and revitalize their downtowns."
