Jarmel Kizel Appointed To Design 19,000-Sf Mixed-Use Facility In Northport, NY

NORTHPORT, NY (OCTOBER 22, 2007) — Jarmel Kizel Architects & Engineers, Inc. has been appointed by 1014 Holding Company, LLC to design Northport Commons, a two-story 19,000-square-foot mixed-use facility located in Northport at the intersections of Fort Salonga and Rinaldo roads. For this assignment, Jarmel Kizel provided a gamut of architectural and engineering services related to the building’s core and shell design and interior fit up. Matthew B. Jarmel, AIA, MBA, principal, is serving as project principal for this assignment.

This facility will include 9,000 square feet of ground floor retail, and 10,000 square feet of child care on the upper level. The child care center will be occupied by The Learning Experience, a brand of child development centers, which was formed by Michael and Richard Weissman in 2002. Due to unique site conditions both levels of the building will have at grade entrances.

“This exciting mixed-use project will be a wonderful addition to the Northport-Fort Salongacommunity,” said Jarmel. “This development will incorporate the brand design for The Learning Experience, combined with a high end retail center. When completed, it will provide both tenants and visitors with a dynamic experience and provide much needed services to the community.”

As the owner/developer of Northport Commons, I have waited eagerly to develop this prime corner parcel. Matt Jarmel and his professional team from Jarmel Kizel have worked with me closely from a rendering to developing a final set of building plans. I am pleased with the final result and quite confident that we can deliver a very high quality structure and fill it with great tenants that will all jive well with the upscale community surrounding it.
