Photos: New Concept Images of New Village

Patchogue Village Facebook page posts new renderings of Tritec's plan; groundbreaking set for fall.

The Village of Patchogue's Facebook page has posted new concept images of the New Village plan, which will place residential, commercial and office space in the location of the vacated Swezey's department store.

Tritec Real Estate Company's  was in April for 291 apartments, 46,000 square feet of retail and 18,000 square feet of office space to be placed at the Four Corners intersection.

A banner that is now hanging on the department store states that groundbreaking will begin sometime this fall.

What season is this? Flowering cherries plus fully-leaved street trees? This rendering is preposterous!

My, my these renderings sure looks like lipstick on a pig to me! Section 8 here we come! Like Patchogue doesn't have enough already. Anyone remember the pictures of the luxury Tiffany apartments back in the day? There was a lot of lipstick on that pig, too!

You can't pick up Newsday without seeing another big development just like this. What's going on and what's happening to Long Island. They call it "smart growth" and "new urbanism" and argue that there is a desperate need for these monstrous developments. Where are all these people going to work? Where are they going to park? I can see something like this closer to the city, like in Long Beach or Glen Cove. Are these people going to commute to Manhattan for work? Or are all these developments cropping up going to wind up as low income housing? I think we know the answer already. Developers and low income housing agencies sure have a strong hold on Long Island politicians these days. Especially in Brookhaven.

Where are people going to park for these 300 apartments? Surely there will be 1-2 cars per apartment. They will have to change "Alive After Five" next summer to "Survive After Five!"

So does this mean the litigation is settled? I can't imagine the Village would start advertising this if it is still pending.

The images look GREAT. I know I'll be signing up to rent one of these LUXURY (definitely not section 8 - no matter what certain uninformed parties continue to insist) apartments. Thank you Mayor Pontieri and Trustees Keyes, Krieger, Devlin & Hilton for having the vision and leadership to make this project happen.

My, my we throw around such meaningless words these days. Are these apartments "affordable" or "luxury"? And what in the dickens does "work force" mean anyway. Well if you want to see what luxury looks like down the road, come on down to the LUXURY tiffany apartments. Aren't they grand?

Well the TRITEC development is a mix of pricing -- some are market-rate (read: luxury) and some are designated "affordable" which is literally defined as available to families earning up to 80% of area median income, and I believe some are designated "workforce" which means available to families earning up to 100% of area median income. So I hope that clears up the confusion on those definitions. And you're right -- these apartments certainly look similar to the gorgeous design clearly present at the Tiffany Apartments. Apt comparison. I mean, all affordable housing MUST look the same, right? Just like all affordable cars look the same, all affordable meals taste the same, right? I mean cost defines design, clearly.

What a crock of horse manure!

Will the work being done be Union?

The architectural design of these buildings is horrible, fake, unoriginal, and a disgrace to our village. The garden design is as unsophisticated as the architecture. I would prefer the vacant Swezey building on the corner for a few more years than looking at that ugly apartment complex forever. And that archway...GHASTLY!!!

Wow, does anyone know how much these apartments will cost? Is it a secret? Why can't I google it? New Village promotes itself as a separate society from our Village. Oh my will the "Old Patchogue Village" residents ever lay their eyes on the wonder of this fantastic "New Village". Will the "New Village" residents be an elite group beyond the ordinary "Old"???
