The New Rochelle Planning Board is expected to review proposals from a local developer to construct a new 28-story building in Downtown New Rochelle. Located at 525 Main Street, the site is formed by an assemblage of five lots to create a 22,000-square-foot unified parcel.

If approved, the building would contain 351 residential units, 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and a multi-level parking garage for 274 vehicles.

According to a report from Westfair Communications, the residential component will be divided into 31 studios, 268 one-bedroom units, 46 two-bedroom units, and six three-bedroom units. Ten percent of the available units will be reserved for affordable housing.

The building’s fifth floor will contain a majority of the residential amenity spaces in addition to a mezzanine-level swimming pool, and outdoor space located on the sixth floor.

According to Doban Architecture, the project’s lead architect, the façade of the structure will be comprised of glass and brick materials. At this time, renderings of the project have not been made public. Main & Memorial Assemblage LLC, the project’s developer, has submitted an Environmental Assessment Statement to the New Rochelle Planning Board and is expected make an official presentation on Tuesday, January 28.

  1. Again not enough parking spaces, less than 1 per appartment, and a potential of 50 children who will need to attend school.

    274 Parking spots, geez. The area has good public transit, people need to get rid of their cars.

  3. Here we go again. Less than one parking space per appartment. Most couples I know have 2 cars. There is also the potential for 50 children. That means 50 more students in our already crowded schools.

    How would one be able to apply for the future reserved affordable housing units?

  5. This development is on a vibrant corner of Main Street, and at least two of the small buildings on the site are distinguished architecturally. It would be smart to preserve these buildings within the development.

  6. Will the affordable units be for low income seniors or just below market rates?

  7. We the People want their Aitrain for Laguardia, even though The US DOT is located on New Jersey Avenue which represents the State of New Jersey in the United States , but We the People of New York took it just like the Statue of Liberty which is actually located geographically in New Jersey and the US Forest and Park Service has federalized for revenue purposes due to the popularity of the statue.

    There we go again, Westchester has a host of Portuguese-descent people especially foreign Brazilians, if they were so good why do they come to the United States begging for visas, here is the name of one Cristina Martins Filipe Duarte , apparently a benefactor of the slave-master system.

  9. @Vermont, Vermont will still use slave labor from Canada regardless of the proposed constitutional amendment which has yet to pass muster in U.S. Federal court and Canadian Courts which borders Vermont, Westchester hypocrites are known to use Latin American laborers for dirt cheap and run to their Vermont log cabins during the brutal New York summer heat.
