Luxury condo complex opens in Beacon

BEACON – After a two-and-a-half year effort, The View condominium complex in the City of Beacon is ready for occupancy.

The complex features 41 different style homes, designed to be a fit for empty-nesters, millennials moving from the five boroughs and the average worker, according to building developer Don Strauch.

Starting prices for apartments are $275,000 with a monthly common charge of $180. Penthouse apartments can go from $1 million to $1.3 million.

Strauch set out to purchase two acres of land in Beacon back in January of 2016 because of its convenient location.

“The train station is right down the street, we’re a walk away from Main Street and we’re close to the airport, 84, all the major highways,” Strauch said. “We have underground parking. If someone works in New York City, they go right down to the train station and it’s less than an hour away.”

Property realtor Phil Messina of Berkshire Hathaway agrees that the location is ideal, especially for city residents.

“It’s so close to the train that they can still work in the city and live in the country,” Messina said.

The luxury penthouse apartments are expected to be the main attraction for upscale New Yor City residents looking to move upstate.

“Thirty years ago, we didn’t have penthouses in Beacon, and now we do,” said Rick Brownell, director of the Beacon Chamber of Commerce.

True to its name, The View condominium complex boasts a 1,000 square foot entertaining space on the rooftop with prominent views of the Beacon area.

Brownell is grateful that Strauch picked Beacon to be the site of this unprecedented venture.

“We’re lucky that the builder and owner picked this place and came to Beacon to build this great property,” Brownell said. “Beacon has a very diverse community; it’s a very unique place.”
