Avalon Towers in Long Beach, NY offers newly renovated apartments for lease just steps from the beach. Inside this community are thoughtfully designed 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartment homes that boast brand new gourmet kitchens with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, newly renovated bathrooms, brand new wood floors, brand new washers and dryers in each home, and private balconies with gorgeous views of the ocean. Shared community amenities include a two story state-of-the-art fitness center, sparkling outdoor heated swimming pool with ocean views, and a private garage.
The renovation while successful visually had some poor to strange design choices ie. Some sloppy workmanship (painting). Using old fashioned light switches instead of updating. Lack of overhead lighting. Lack of shelving in over counter kitchen cabinets and not using updated pull out drawers in lower cabinets. No dedicated trash can cabinet. High cabinets over fridge almost useless because of interference by door hinges on fridge (very poor design and planning). Not being able to open windows wide enough means we'll have to use AC more frequently (no energy savings there). Leaving outdated and yellowing phone jacks (useless and unsightly) instead of removing or covering.
I am a newcomer to Avalon and haven't lived in an apartment in 35 years. The location, condition of the property, amenities and staff made me sure I was doing the right thing by moving here. My view is fantastic, and my apartment had just been updated prior to my move; I am a lucky guy!
Good location and excellent staff
Avalon Towers is the best bang for your buck!
I love the location and the community at Avalon Towers, however, in order to be considered a luxury complex it definitely needs upgrades in the kitchens and bathrooms. The popcorn ceilings need to go and some crown molding would be nice too! The wall sconces and other hardware are below grade for the prices.
