Manhattan-based developer G&S Investors is planning to build a five-story mixed-use project with up to 79 residential units at 59 Westchester Avenue or 1 North Main Street, in Port Chester, Westfair reports. The site is currently a parking lot and located two blocks from the village’s Metro-North Railroad station. It would include 14,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and many of the units would be studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms. The village board would have to approve a zoning variance, which is a process hoped to be completed by the end of 2016.

It will measure 38,236 square feet in total and will include 7,441 square feet of health care offices on the ground and second floors. Residential units begin on the third floor and should average 810 square feet apiece. Though two two wood-framed structures were demolished over the summer, construction has yet to begin. Nik Lavrinoff is developing and Z Architecture is designing.
