TRITEC developed 260 residential units at 75 Hoffman Avenue in Lindenhurst, Long Island, New York.
The new development, situated on a former industrial site, is located two blocks from Wellwood Avenue, the main thoroughfare in the Village of Lindenhurst, and across the street from Lindenhurst Train Station. The location promotes both mass transit and enhances a walkable neighborhood. Since the development process began, 17 new businesses have opened on Wellwood and Hoffman Avenues.
The Wel draws design inspiration from the site's existing industrial roots and character from the surrounding neighborhoods. The Wel took its name from Lindenhurst history, honoring founder Thomas Welwood whose last name is misspelled on the main thoroughfare. TRITEC incorporated arched windows into the design reminiscent of the windows formerly found in the Lakeville building that previously occupied the site. Artifacts salvaged during demolition, like the original cast iron door from the boiler, will also be a part of the interior design of the new facility.
The facility is 3 and 4 stories in height and has underground parking below a portion of the building. TRITEC made drastic improvements to the creek that bisects the site. The building and two bridges will span the waterway, restored to its natural state as an amenity for the residents.
