Vision

Terwilliger & Bartone Properties is currently proposing the Cornerstone Waterfront at Patchogue, highly-amenitized luxury apartment homes along the Patchogue River in walking distance of the train station near Patchogue Village’s thriving downtown. The two-acre property is located at the intersection of Mulford Street and West Avenue

The proposal includes a 50-unit Class A style building designed to evoke the coastal architecture of Cape Cod meets Nantucket style. Offerings will include a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom residences managed by an on-site full-time professional staff. Future residents will enjoy high end finishes and amenities, including rooftop patio with fireplace and fitness area.

Plans also include replacing the property’s current 1,200 SF marina building with a modern clubhouse for marina patrons with showers, rooftop deck and amenities. Future residents at the Cornerstone Waterfront will have the right of first refusal for rental of the marina’s 55 boat slips.

Incorporating Community Feedback

Working with the community to ensure our proposal fits the neighborhood and community at-large is a core tenant of what we do. Throughout the public review process, we have received valuable feedback that has led to multiple major revisions in terms of size and scale of the building as well as a complete redesign of the proposed exterior aesthetic to match the surrounding community. The current revised proposal has now addressed every single concern raised by the Planning Board, ultimately resulting in a zero-variance proposal. With its next level architecture and design, Cornerstone Waterfront at Patchogue will transform a former industrial site into a serene waterfront property for all to enjoy.

Earlier changes to the proposal include:

  • Reducing unit count from 74 to 50
  • Bringing the building height down to now be fully compliant with zoning
  • Reorientation of the building to run east-west, instead of north-south
  • Removal of any plans to build infrastructure over Mulford Street
  • Redesign of the building to match the neighborhood’s historic charm and blend seamlessly into the aesthetic of the area.

Conceptual Artistic Renderings

Transforming An Industrial Use

This proposal will transform a former industrial site to residential use to match the surrounding residential area and add a promenade area as a public amenity. Currently the privately-owned site includes parking lots, a marina building and a dock along the river. It is not a park open to the public, and the dead end street often is subject to loitering. However, the Cornerstone proposal includes the creation of a promenade with benches and pavers for the public to enjoy and access the scenic waterfront.

Years ago, there were oil tanks on the property. However, since then the soil and groundwater have been cleaned to standards set by applicable agencies, and parking lots are now graded with clean fill. A letter from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation was issued to confirm the site is clean.
