Reflecting the increased demand for multi-family housing options on Long Island, Racanelli Construction recently completed a 90-unit, five-story apartment building on Park Avenue in Bay Shore, New York. The project, valued at $19.8 million dollars features popular amenities such as an onsite gym, Peloton room, and indoor/outdoor common area for gatherings and entertaining.
The 118,795 square foot apartment building, for which Racanelli Construction served as the General Contractor, was constructed using timber piles, pile caps and a concrete second floor podium to accommodate a wood structure from the second floor to the roof. Building systems include an elevator, full fire alarm system, sprinkler fire suppression system, and back-up generator.
Upon approaching the building, you will see a façade of many elements – thin brick, exterior insulation finishing system (EIFS), ground face block and metal panels. Also featured are a curtain wall system, windows, terrace doors at unit balconies, and high durability Trespa panels.
Outside of the building, there is on grade parking, accompanied by a first-floor garage area. The site is fully-landscaped with trellises and blue stone pavers used in the patio areas. Blue stone steps are also featured at the building entrance. The entrance also has an Americans with Disabilities (ADA) compliant ramp with a hybrid curtain wall to project a grand entrance to an open tread, single stringer grand interior staircase.
On the apartment building’s fifth floor, there are outdoor barbecue grills built into outdoor cabinets. To further support the outdoor lifestyle, there building provides outdoor furniture, a gas fireplace, planters, flat screen televisions, and a pergola surrounding the property’s outside perimeter.
In addition to these fifth-floor outdoor amenities, there is a large indoor meeting room with a kitchen area and urban décor and furniture.
This latest residential construction project by Racanelli Construction projects the growing trend toward amenity-rich multi-family residential projects on Long Island.
