Leasing has begun for two new apartment buildings under construction in Westbury. 

Called the Cornerstone at Westbury, the two buildings on Railroad Avenue total 130 apartments, 72 units in phase one, which is scheduled to be completed this fall and 58 in phase two, which should be completed early next year. 

There will be 112 market-rate apartments offered at monthly rents starting at about $2,600 for a studio to about $3,500 for a two-bedroom unit, according to Anthony Bartone, managing partner of developer Terwilliger & Bartone Properties. 

The apartments will feature high ceilings, designer kitchens, and modern finishes. Amenities will include direct access to the platform of the Westbury Long Island Rail Road station, rooftop patio, clubhouse for entertaining, fitness center, and on-site parking. 

More than 1,200 applications were submitted for the complex’s 18 workforce housing units before the application period closed on July 24. The Long Island Housing Partnership (LIHP), in coordination with The Cornerstone Westbury and the Village of Westbury, will conduct a lottery this month for applicants who qualify for LIHP’s Affordable Rental Housing Program.

“We are thrilled to achieve this exciting milestone as we begin leasing for the first project made possible by the Village of Westbury’s new transit-oriented development zoning,” Bartone said in a company statement. “Smart revitalization is essential to the vitality of Long Island’s downtowns, and The Cornerstone Westbury addresses the urgent need for quality multifamily with amenities close to transit, while catalyzing economic development in the heart of Westbury for years to come.”
