The Beechwood Organization, the leading builder of residential homes on Long Island and one of the largest in New York State, was honored by the Long Island Builders Institute on November 8, 2017 with six awards for outstanding achievement in the development and construction of housing on Long Island.

These include the top LIBI honor, a Double Diamond Award, for three developments:

The 143-acre multi-use neighborhood features 750 new condominium homes primarily for 55+ active adults; a 29,000+-square foot clubhouse; 118,450-square-feet of retail space including a 68,000-square-foot ShopRite; 57 acres to be dedicated to the Town of Oyster Bay for public recreation; and a two-mile walking trail connecting to Trail View State Park.

*Marina Pointe East Rockaway in the Upscale Multi-Family Condominium category – the thoughtfully designed Smart Growth development of 84 waterfront homes offers an unparalleled blend of luxury and convenience for all ages with a 40-minute ride to NYC.

*The Vanderbilt in Westbury in the Market Rate 101+ Unit Rental category – the 195-unit luxury apartment building and hotel meets the region’s demand for an alternative to home ownership and graciously designed hotel suites with a new amenities-enriched way to live and stay on Long Island and in central Nassau County.

Diamond Awards were given to two developments:

*Country Pointe Plainview in the Active Adult Condominium Luxury category – also LIBI Community of the Year, the 750-unit residential community meets the demand for those 55 years and better who want to transition from traditional family home ownership to a more carefree and maintenance-free lifestyle in a way that allows them to live near family and friends, stay active and make new friends. There will be a 24/7 fully attended gatehouse, a 29,000+-square-foot clubhouse, two outdoor swimming pools, a fitness center, tennis and bocce ball courts; and convenient retail plaza, The Shops at Country Pointe Plainview.

*Country Pointe Estates Ridge in the Single-Family Detached Moderate category – the collection of 94 classic ranch and two story estate homes offers state-of-the art design, an evergreen setting and the best new home value on Long Island bringing together signature Beechwood quality and bucolic Long Island.

Finally, a Gold Award was given to Country Pointe Meadows in Yaphank in the Active Adult Condominium Upscale category. The 400-unit adult community is the for sale residential component of The Boulevard (www.theboulevardny.com), a master planned community on the former site of Yaphank’s Parr Meadows Racetrack in Suffolk County’s Town of Brookhaven.
