Main Street Mews

70 South Main Street, Freeport, NY

size: 24,000 SF

type: Live/Work Lofts and Retail

Main Street Mews is a live/work loft project located in Freeport, NY. This¬†three-story¬†brick¬†building is located on the west side of South Main Street between Merrick Avenue and Sunrise Highway. ¬†It contains approximately 5,000 SF of retail on the ground floor facing¬†downtown¬†Freeport’s busy Main Street, 16 live/work lofts on the second and third floors, and a mews that joins Main Street with the primary parking lot that serves both downtown’s many shop owners as well as the Main Street Mews¬†project. Site and floor plans were designed by Glenn Erikson, AIA, the elevation concept was created¬†by the Village of Freeport’s architect, Russell Jordan, and the design and plans were completed by Marvin Meltzer, AIA. The site was acquired via a $220,000 grant from the Empire State Development Corporation, New York’s economic development agency, and was originally conceived as a rental project. However, during construction it was successfully converted to a condominium project. The 950 to 1,200 square foot lofts have 17-foot high ceilings. An open mezzanine of about 300 square feet divides the rear portion of the loft to provide two levels of living space, each with eight-foot ceilings. The mezzanine includes a bedroom, walk-in closet and full bathroom. ¬†Beneath it, on the main level, is¬†the entry, a closet, office area, a kitchen and a bathroom. The remainder of each unit is full height, each with a 13′ x¬†13′ foot window for natural lighting. ¬†Twelve of the units enjoy¬†north light, over-looking the fully landscaped mews. ¬†Glenn Erikson was Project Director of Development¬†for Time Equities, the developer of the project.
