Beechwood buys Huntington Station land for 76 condos



A Jericho-based developer has purchased land in Huntington Station where it intends to build 76 condominiums.

The Beechwood Organization closed last month on the purchase of 6 acres from Virginia-based AvalonBay Communities, said Chris Capece, a senior development director at AvalonBay. The land is at the southeast corner of AvalonBay’s newly built apartment complex, at 1700 E. Fifth St., which includes 303 rentals, a clubhouse and a pool. Those living in the new condominiums will have access to those amenities, according to Beechwood.

In 2011, Huntington’s town board approved AvalonBay’s plans for 379 units, including the rentals and 76 condominiums, on 26.5 acres near the Long Island Rail Road station.

Beechwood is expected to start construction in the spring. Prices for the condominiums will range from $399,000 to $550,000, said Steven Dubb, a principal at Beechwood.
