Town of Wallkill, N.Y. – Construction is well underway on the second phase of luxurious rental homes at Northwoods, the new offering of one-and two-bedroom garden style apartments being developed in the Orange County, N.Y. Town of Wallkill
The new rental buildings – which represent the balance of the community’s 70 upscale homes – are expected to be completed and ready for occupancy by the end of 2012, according to Jack Linefsky, Vice President of Property Management for the Value Companies, developer/owner/manager of Northwoods.
“The first phase of this rental community is fully leased and we are excited to be able to offer more apartment homes to the public. There has been great interest and a large demand for these homes and we are looking forward to continuing this success in the second phase,” says Mr. Linefsky. “The fact that we’ve successfully leased all of our homes in the first phase in such a short time validates our belief that offering modern apartments at affordable monthly rents and in desirable, commuter-friendly locations will have a strong appeal to young couples, families and single-professionals.”
Apartment homes in the second housing phase have already been reserved during the pre-leasing period months before its final buildings are complete, which is a remarkable milestone.
Northwoods’ upscale apartment homes are spread across a distinctly suburban site and ideally located in close proximity to major transportation options. Monthly rents at Northwoods begin from $1,325 for one-bedroom homes and $1,525 for two-bedroom apartments.
In addition to apartments equipped with the latest features and appointments, Northwoods boasts an activity-rich lifestyle with state-of-the-art on-site amenities including a fitness center, half basketball court and playground, as well as a clubroom offering WiFi access, a catering kitchen, and lounge area.
Northwoods will consist of seven rental buildings on a professionally managed and beautifully landscaped site, with access-controlled entries to each building. Homes will range from 800 to 1,100 square-feet and boast washer and dryers, individually controlled central air and heat, fully equipped kitchens and spacious walk-in closets. Additionally, each unit will also feature a balcony or patio.
Nestled in the historic Hudson River Valley, Northwoods boasts a country-like atmosphere with panoramic mountain views. Local sites in the Town of Wallkill consist of twelve parks and recreational areas, including the public Town of Wallkill Golf Club. The Hudson Valley region is also home to a variety of performing arts venues, wineries, historical attractions, museums, fine shopping and a host of state parks and outdoor activities.
Shopping can be found minutes away at the Galleria Mall at Crystal Run. Northwoods is also a quick trip from Route 17 and the New York State Thruway, making commuting to destinations in northern New Jersey and Manhattan extremely convenient; and public transportation is available nearby at the Metro North Railroad.
