The Westchester County Industrial Development Agency has granted preliminary approvals for the construction of a new three-building residential complex in the Foxhurst neighborhood of Westchester County. The complex is a collaborative project between the NRP Group and RPW Group, which intend to begin construction by February 2020.
Located at 1133 Westchester Avenue, the development will replace an existing office building once owned and occupied by IBM.
“This project is part of an emerging trend, which has seen the transformation of vacant office parks into new uses such as Wegmans supermarket, Life Time Athletic fitness center, and a pediatric care ambulatory facility for Montefiore Medical Center,” said Bridget Gibbons, director of the Westchester County Office of Economic Development. “These important developments are creating jobs and adding to the economic vibrancy of Westchester County.”
Current plans entail the construction of a 620,000-square-foot residential building that will contain a mix of market rate apartments and affordable housing that will be reserved for households with income at 60 percent area median income. Units will include 178 one-bedrooms, 115 two-bedrooms, and ten three-bedroom layouts.
Amenities include a fitness center, a private pool, a business lounge, a pet spa, and approximately 12,000 square feet of outdoor recreation space. The new property will also be constructed in accordance with LEED-sustainable building standards including the installation of rooftop solar panels and on-site electric vehicle charging stations. There will be a shuttle to Downtown White Plains and the Metro-North train station.
According to a release from the developer, full completion and occupancy are expected by February 2022.
