Tritec Real Estate’s newest project on the North Shore, The Shipyard at Port Jeff Harbor, is here — and its ready to be celebrated.

To do so, the commercial real estate developer held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday to showcase the success the “first-class living” apartment complex.

“We are thrilled to be part of Port Jeff Village and add to the beauty, the economic vitality, and vibrancy of the community,” said Tritec’s co-founder, Bob Coughlan.

Since opening up the 112 apartments to residents on 201 West Broadway three months ago, the units have been filling up quickly.

“We received a fantastic reception,” said Coughlan. “We have 91 out of the 112 units leased.. thank you for all the support.”

In addition to the apartments, the property also includes a gym, clubhouse and a sprawling courtyard with four barbecues, a fire pit and turf fields for lawn games or lying out.

“Our goal was to create a Class A, quality rental living environment and I think we did it,” said Tritec’s lead developer, Robert Kent.

During the celebration, there was food and drinks supplied by local restaurants, like Nantuckets and Port Jefferson Brewing Company, as well as live music.

Also on hand was Port Jeff Mayor Margot Garant, who showed her support of the project.

“We couldn’t ask for a better partner to [transform] a blighted site that for decades was bordered up and broken into,” she said.
