The transit-oriented apartment complex being built at the former site of the notorious Courtesy Hotel in West Hempstead will be completed in the fall, representatives for the owner said.

The complex, on Hempstead Avenue and Westminster Road, is expected to be opened in October, said Maria R. Rigopoulos, vice president of development in the Northeast for property owner Mill Creek Residential.

The new four-story residential building called West 130, next to the Long Island Rail Road's West Hempstead station, will feature 150 upscale rentals made up of one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The 2.7-acre complex will have an outdoor pool, landscaped courtyards, clubhouse, fitness center and Internet lounge, theater room, cafe and two-story underground parking garage.

In May 2011, a ceremonial demolition started the process of tearing down the Courtesy Hotel, which had been shuttered four months earlier. The demolition was a victory for groups that had long sought to get rid of the hotel because of its history of drug and violent crime arrests.

The development will be discussed at the West Hempstead Community Support Association meeting Thursday night at 7:30 in the West Hempstead Public Library's Community Meeting Room, on 500 Hempstead Ave. A representative from Mill Creek Residential, based in Wilton, Conn., is expected to provide an update and answer questions.

The Nassau police Fifth Precinct and West Hempstead Neighborhood Watch Program will address community issues and concerns.
