HEMPSTEAD, N.Y., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Village Lofts, the first multifamily modular rental residential project in Nassau County, Long Island, is slated to open in early October.  Developed by La Cite Development LLC, the 29-unit complex is located at 479 Front Street in Hempstead, Nassau County, and offers both market-rate and workforce housing options with modern amenities and a luxurious feel. The complex is comprised of one and two-bedroom units, including two duplex apartments. Market rate one-bedrooms start at $1,400; two-bedrooms start at $2,550. Douglas Elliman's Maria Boafo, Matthew Korman, and Orlando Frade have been tapped as the exclusive leasing and marketing agents for the project.

The gated community boasts spacious, modern floor plans with wide plank maple wood floors, 9'6" high ceilings, over-sized hi-tech windows, GE Energy Star appliances including washer, dryer, and dishwasher as well as open kitchens with ample counter space and solid hardwood cabinets. The bathrooms offer custom tile work and a sleek, contemporary feel. Each unit also comes with one free parking space.

Residents can enter the grounds through security-coded gated access and enjoy a landscaped exterior courtyard. The complex is cable/internet ready and features a modern lobby complete with an elevator, common room, media screening room, and on-site storage facilities. Village Lofts was constructed using a unique modular housing product by Clayton Homes.

"Village Lofts is luxurious living at affordable prices. The project will have an extremely positive impact on the local economy, and the residents of this community," said Dan Bythewood, President of La Cite Development LLC.

Douglas Elliman reports that the building has already commanded overwhelming interest. "There is no other residential project in this area that combines such style and attention to detail with affordable price points. We anticipate the units will rent out very quickly," said Ms. Boafo, Mr. Korman, and Mr. Frade.
