Potential residents of the first Garvies Point condominium building slated to rise on Glen Cove’s waterfront can now visit a model home.

Sales of the 167 condos in the five-story Beacon are expected to begin in late spring. The model home, which was unveiled March 23, is at the Garvies Point Welcome Center.

The 167 units are the first of 1,110 condos and rental apartments in the Garvies Point project, which when complete also is to include several parks, stores, marinas, offices, restaurants, an esplanade and a boardwalk.

Uniondale-based RXR Glen Isle Partners is slated to start construction of The Beacon within the next few months. Prices for the units are expected to range between $550,000 and $2 million.

Glen Cove-based Studio Grella designed the model for the units, which, according to an RXR news release, will include “a classically contemporary look” with 8-foot windows, marble and porcelain bathroom floors and other amenities. The one-, two- and three-bedroom units will range in size from 897 to 2,052 square feet.

The Beacon is expected to be completed by the spring of 2019. Construction of a 387-unit apartment building began this month, RXR said. It also is expected to be finished by the spring of 2019.

Sales will occur as two lawsuits seeking to annul city approval of Garvies Point remain active. A Supreme Court judge in Nassau County dismissed the suits in August, but the plaintiffs — the Village of Sea Cliff in one suit, 105 area residents in another — are appealing.
