UPDATE: On August 1, 2016, the Nassau County Legislature approved a real estate tax exemption on the New Moxey Rigby Apartment Community Property.
When Superstorm Sandy hit Freeport in October 2012, the Moxey A. Rigby Apartment Complex suffered significant damage, almost to the point of no return. Substantial flooding in the basements affected the mechanical/electrical and heating systems. Without heat, electric, or generators, many tenants were displaced for close to a month.
With help from the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery, FEMA, New York State Home and Community Renewal, Nassau County and the Village of Freeport, a brand new Moxey A. Rigby is on the way.
The new property will be located across the street from the existing apartment complex. The new development will feature: 101 units, each one 25% larger than current units; over 100 resident parking spaces, all elevated above flood levels; multiple elevators; laundry facilities on each floor; two community rooms; a recreation center; high efficient refrigerator, stove and dishwasher in each unit; individually-controlled high efficiency heating and cooling in each apartment; playgrounds; and ADA-compliant apartments. The “New Moxey A. Rigby Apartment Community” will be a full flood and storm resilient structure
Resident Heads of Household will ALL receive a Section 8 relocation assistance voucher to move into the “New Moxey A. Rigby Apartment Community.” Under Section 8, residents will continue to pay no more than 30% of their adjusted gross income. In short, ALL tenants’ rents remains the same, no increase.
For tenants who prefer not to move into the “New Moxey A. Rigby Apartment Community,” Section 8 vouchers will be provided. All Section 8 vouchers that are provided are 100% portable to other parts of the country and other properties.
We look forward to building a “New Moxey A. Rigby Apartment Community” and to provide all our tenants a “State of the Art” modern apartment community for all to be proud of for years to come.
