Occupancy has begun at The Selby, a 237-unit apartment complex at 695 Merrick Avenue in Westbury, New York. The complex is the latest residential development from The Beechwood Organization, a Long Island-based developer that has built nearly 10,000 homes since the 1980s.
The Selby sits on a 5.87-acre parcel next to the town’s Eisenhower Park and golf course. The complex itself measures 582,000 square feet and includes 210 rental apartments, 27 long-term stay executive suites, and a 6,000-square-foot restaurant.
Tenants also have access to a 85-foot-long outdoor pool with lounge areas, a 20,000-square-foot terrace, an indoor lounge and club room, fitness center, spa, library, game room, children’s playroom, business center, and a private dining room with a prep kitchen. There is also an enclosed parking garage with electric vehicle charging stations.
“We created The Selby to reflect the most refined tastes in sophisticated apartment living to be found east of New York City,” said The Beechwood Organization co-founder Steven Dubb. “These are Long Island’s nicest residences, with the nicest lifestyle and in the nicest location, across from Eisenhower Park in central Nassau County.”
Upon entering the building, tenants are greeted by a two-story lobby outfitted in custom millwork, a jeweled chandelier, and etched brass accents. Each home features 10-foot ceiling spans, open floor plans, oversized windows to maximize the flow of natural light and views of Eisenhower Park, and designer fixtures and appliances.
Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects, The Selby is described as French chateau-style revival inspired by the prewar residential buildings along Central Park West in Manhattan.
Homes at The Selby are priced from $3,200 per month for a studio apartment to $9,500 for a three-bedroom, three-bathroom home.

Hope to see more mid-rise res development around the perimeter of Eisenhower Park. It’s a great amenity for residents & offers amazing views of the park during all seasons. Merrick Ave & Hempstead Turnpike adjacent are potential development areas for much-needed housing options in Westbury, East Meadow etc.
Massive development, seems over-powering. Beautiful apartments and amenities. I can imagine the additional traffic on Merric and Post Ave. Good luck to new residents
The exterior pretends to be Versailles but it ain’t……the interior tries to be the Fountainblue, but it ain’t and the Library has no books. Just saying. Why do these buildings need to be so cheesy.
It’s the law
Also bad taste.
This is a country where people wrap their homes in fake wood made of plastic to “improve” it’s looks.
I’ll be so glad when the random dangling lights fad dies out.
Ridiculously overpriced, my house doesn’t cost that much a month.
Id like to know who has the 3200 a month for a studio my mortgage in massapequa park is 1900 a month2000 square feet and i have a BBQ and my own yard you can keep that overpriced rental. All i see is more traffic on the roads
This is disgusting. They’re not building any affordable housing. Of many many people on the verge of homelessness. Not everyone makes that kind of money. What’s going on here and in many other places is inhumane . Housing is not a privilege
$3200 a month for a STUDIO?!? LOLLLLLLLLLL WTF this is some random area of Long Island, not the Hamptons even. On a commercial street surrounded by stock retail. Come on….. these prices don’t make ANY sense. Who can afford that?!
