Within the past few weeks, Long Island-based American Equity Partners filed applications and began the approval process to convert the 12-story, 350,000-square-foot office building at 440 Hamilton Avenue, located on the corner of North Broadway in downtown White Plains, into 245 residential units. A rendering of the project has also been revealed by the Westchester County Business Journal.
The office building would receive a new façade, as well as a 13th floor. Ten percent of the apartments, or 25 units, would be designated as affordable. Retail space is planned on the ground floor, likely to be occupied by a café or grocery store. The design is by White Plains-based Papp Architects.
