The New Village development at Patchogue's Four Corners intersection of North Ocean Avenue and Main Street is going onward and literally upward.
Tritec Real Estate Company's $100 million New Village plan is set to bring 291 apartments, 46,000 square feet of retail space and 18,000 square feet of office space at the Four Corners intersection in Patchogue Village.
At Monday's Patchogue Village Board of Trustees meeting at Patchogue Village Hall, trustee Tom Ferb said he talked to Tritec Chief Operating Officer Rob Loscalzo and described progress made above and below the ground of the former Swezey's Department store.
"Anybody who's driven by Four Corners can see we're going vertical," Ferb said. "They just about finished with the concrete."
Ferb said that the project is going to go up fast, and an underground parking lot has also made much progress.
Ferb said that the building at Havens Avenue is going to start construction in mid-April, but this will cause the Village to lose access to the parking lot at the corner of Havens and Main Street.
"We're going to be further crunched in parking for a while," Ferb said.
Ferb said that construction workers coming into the Village are being encouraged to park a distance from the site to keep the pressure off, and that they are usually out of the area by 5 p.m.
