After delays due to Covid-19, the demolition of the Capri Motel is underway to make room for a new 80-unit apartment complex being built by Terwilliger & Bartone Properties.
The 4-story luxury rental apartment complex - being called The Cornerstone at Yorkshire - will be constructed on the site of the Lynbrook Motor Inn at 5 Freer Street in Lynbrook, also known as the Capri Motel.
Leasing is slated to begin next summer with an anticipated opening in Fall 2021.
A ceremonial groundbreaking on June 15 was attended by officials from the Village of Lynbrook, Chamber of Commerce and Nassau Countyalong with representatives for Terwilliger & Bartone.
“This property has long been a nuisance for the Village, and I am thrilled to be here today to help bring a welcome revitalization that not only will add foot traffic for local businesses, but also bring the kind of smart development that strengthens the community as a whole,” said Lynbrook Mayor Alan Beach in a statement released by the developer.
The Cornerstone at Yorkshire includes 80 modern luxury studio, one- and two-bedroom residences. They will include high-end finishes like Quartz counters, stainless appliances, open floor plans and balconies in select units. The developer said that the community will emphasize green and healthy building initiatives and offer elevated resident amenities, such as a modern fitness center with outdoor yoga area, spacious clubroom with billiards, lush courtyard with firepit, parking on-site and more.
Construction on-site will adhere to the strict guidelines for reopening issued by New York State.
