Jericho Turnpike in Mineola has been a major thoroughfare since its original use as a road to New York City for carrying produce to the markets. At the turn of the century, the road was widened for trolley and automobile traffic to the city. Today, Jericho Turnpike continues to be a main access road from Eastern Long Island to Queens and the Boroughs.

JRS Architect has been located in the Mineola area since our business began in 1986. In 1995, JRS  made its first impact designing a new building façade for America Homecare on Jericho Turnpike. Its striking sleek design and bold use of color would be a prelude of things to come both for Jericho Turnpike in Mineola and JRS Architect.

The firm made its next impact on Jericho Turnpike with the ground-up design and construction of Sperry Associates Federal Credit Union’s new headquarters building. The building is a contemporary fusion of old materials and new design. Asymmetrical windows and a curved skylight set it apart from other structures nearby, yet the brick and stucco façade easily blend with neighboring buildings.

In 2001, JRS Architect moved its headquarters to Jericho Turnpike. The new building is situated on the Southwest corner of Sheridan Blvd. Its contemporary use of curtainwall glass and Beige faux stone façade add elegance to the corner. The JRS Building is not just a structure, it is an investment in the community.

In 2004, JRS Architect once again left its mark on Jericho Turnpike and designed a new Bank Branch for Roslyn Savings Bank. The new building is designed in an updated mission style. Craftsman style window mullions are finished in red and invigorate the traditional brick and stucco with contemporary flair.

When asked about his impact on Jericho Turnpike, Mr. John R. Sorrenti, F.A.I.A., says “We have been fortunate to be a part of this community for about 20 years and are excited that we have been able to enhance the streetscape, making it more vibrant and conducive for business development”.
