In an effort to provide more affordable housing options in the Bay Shore area, as well as to revitalize and improve on the appearance of this area, the Town of Islip Housing Development Corp. and Islip Housing Authority have worked with Bohemia based Architect Gary J. Bruno to design the new housing building. Designed to have a more suburban feel, this three unit complex has the appearance of a single family home, rather than a large apartment complex, in order to fit in properly in its surroundings. Irwin Contracting has been contracted for the construction of the apartment building.
So far, excavation is completed. The land has been cleared and graded, plumbing has begun and we’re gearing up to start framing next.
The project will consist of two, two-bedroom units and one, three-bedroom handicapped accessible unit. All fully finished units will come complete with beautiful porcelain bathroom and kitchen tile, maple kitchen cabinets, sliding padio doors, dual insulated glass vinyl windows, and a fire sprinkler system. Outside, we will finish the job off with landscaping, to include a built up berm, and two rows of 7-8 foot tall evergreens on either side of the structure. An irrigation system and fencing will be installed as well.
