Hard on the West Hempstead Long Island Rail Road station, renters will only have to walk out of their building and around the corner to access the commuter line.

The four-story building also includes underground parking for tenants.

It also includes such upscale amenities as a game room, a business center, a swimming pool and outdoor fire pit, as well as a state-of-the art fitness center, the developers say.

On May 12, 2011, Murray led the cheer’s emanating from a large crowd at the wrecking ball took aim at the Courtesy Hotel. Published reports said that the crowd cheered every time the wrecking ball hit the building until the former hotel was flattened.

Today, Murray says he is cheered by what she sees at the site.

“The Town of Hempstead is ecstatic about the opening of West 130, a beautiful, ‘smart-growth’ luxury apartment community that will provide housing options for all residents,” she said. The town is proud to partner with Mill Creek Residential Trust on this project, creating a groundbreaking transit oriented development zone, which made it possible for desirable and attractive residences to replace a blighted eyesore known as the Courtesy Hotel. The West 130 luxury apartment complex is restoring luster to West Hempstead’s downtown, as well as providing needed housing for many town residents.
