The Westchester City Planning Board has greenlit the development of Tryp Hotel by Wyndam at 115 Cedar Street in downtown New Rochelle. The 24-story hotel will contain 225 short stay rooms in addition to a flexible event center.
Envisioned by developer Ward Capital Management, the entire property will comprise 245,000 square feet in the heart of New Rochelle’s city center. Hotel amenities include spa facilities, a restaurant and bar, a rooftop pool and grill, a 433-vehicle parking structure, and a ballroom.
“Hotels are an important component of the downtown revitalization,” said New Rochelle’s commissioner of development, Luiz Aragon. “With its boutique feel, resort amenities, and corporate scale, the TRYP Hotel by Wyndham will be unlike anything else in the lower Hudson Valley. As such, it will direct a new wave of regional tourism and corporate spending to New Rochelle’s downtown, supporting local businesses and the overall vitality of the city.”
Tryp Hotel arrives on the heels of a larger initiative to revive New Rochelle’s downtown center. Designed by RXR Realty, the urban masterplan will yield more than 12 million square feet of new construction, including up to 2.4 million square feet of commercial office space, one million square feet of retail, 6,370 housing units, and 1,200 hotel rooms. This effort is projected to bring an additional 12,000 to 15,000 new residents to the surrounding area when complete.
