L&M Development Partners and Wilder Balter Partners Inc. have completed work on their $190 million project in downtown New Rochelle, called ‘Stella’. The new addition to the city at 10 LeCount Place stands as a 28-story mixed-use residential building. The property is designed by Beyer Blinder Belle and offers 380 homes, including studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. The Marketing Directors is the exclusive leasing and marketing firm for the development. The gross monthly rents for the 285 market rate residences start around $2,000 per month. Stella is built to Enterprise Green Communities efficiency standard, including Energy Star appliances, Zero-VOC interior paints, LED light fixtures, and water- conserving plumbing fixtures.
“We hope to offer Stella residents a truly unique opportunity to live in a beautifully designed modern tower with one-of-kind amenities such as our rooftop pool. All in New Rochelle’s historic downtown, within easy reach of both Metro-North and Amtrak and wonderful local parks,” said Katherine Kelman, senior director of L&M Development Partners Inc.
“We are thrilled to be a key part of the meaningful renaissance under way in downtown New Rochelle. We consider Stella one of the most exciting and innovative new developments in Westchester and are excited to start showing our attractive model apartments, amenities, and panoramic views,” said James Wendling, vice president of Wilder Balter Partners.
“Stella – New Rochelle’s newest luxury rental offering – represents an unmatched lifestyle opportunity with a resort-style amenity package and is perfect for those who want to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty of New Rochelle, but also require convenient access to Downtown New Rochelle and wider Westchester County, as well as a quick commute to Manhattan. We are so excited to be offering these stunning homes to the marketplace,” said Jackie Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, the exclusive leasing and marketing firm for Stella.
Each home includes expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, solar window shades, luxury wide plank flooring, in-unit washer and dryers, and smart door locks. Select residences offer outdoor terraces or balconies, which offer spectacular panoramic views of the Long Island Sound and the Manhattan skyline. Kitchens are finished with smoke oak and white high-gloss cabinets, Calacatta gold quartz countertops, recessed lighting, high-end stainless steel Beko appliance package with a five-burner gas range, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave. Bathrooms are outfitted with natural oak vanity cabinets with designer solid stone countertops, honed porcelain floor tiles, and full-height honed porcelain wall tiles. Bathrooms come outfitted with high-end Pelham & White fixtures as well as an integrated medicine cabinet.
