New West Hempstead Apartment Complex Opens for Tours, Leasing

West130 holding 5-day VIP event with leasing specials.

Nearly two years after the infamous Courtesy Hotel in West Hempstead shut its doors for good, the luxury apartment complex that has been constructed in its place is opening its doors.

Mill Creek Residential kicked off a five-day VIP event Wednesday at West130, the new 150-unit, 2.7 acre "transit-oriented" apartment complex now located on Hempstead Avenue near the West Hempstead LIRR station.

Advertising the event on its Facebook page, Mill Creek explained that not only will those who attend one of the VIP sessions get an exclusive first look at the inside of West130 before the general public, but if they sign a lease now, they'll also save money on amenity fees and rent. The rent concession during the five-day period ranges from $1,250 to $1,800, depending on apartment size, and 50-percent discount on the amenity fee is valued at $300.

Plus, the first 130 move-ins will be eligible for free swag bag worth $75, and everyone who attends can enjoy refreshments and enter the raffle for a chance to win an iPad.

The five-day VIP event will take place on Nov. 28, 29 and 30 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Dec. 1, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Dec. 2.

no ones bashing WH. I live here too, but its insulting. The apts are not exactly the most luxurious area....i know i live near it. The price is totally out of line and we were told affordable housing from what i recall. Asking for rent over 2 grand PLUS $600 in ammenity fees is completely out of line and not representative of the area.

Does anyone know if this apartment complex is leasing or renting apartments, and for how much? Does the complex have a pool?

they are luxury rentals. They were never advertised or discussed as affordable rentals. The purpose of the ocmplex was to replace a bad hotel with something nice. They succeeded. There was no lie perpetrated here. It is about as expensive as the Avalon. There is an Avalon that looks just like this in Rockville Centre for the same prices right next to the train station. The issue is the community has a nicer downtown (bars, restaurants and shops) and more frequent trains and a shorter commute to manhattan and more industry for jobs. For that price people will go elsewhere. They will have to lower the rent eventually if they do not get enough buyers that is what avalon did in glen cove. Either way it does get rid of the blight that was the courtesy hotel.

Beautiful apartments but I agree with Natalie and the other posters that the prices are way over the top.. I make decent money and I could never afford to live there with those prices... Good luck to them in finding renters
