ELD Properties and Equity Land Developers are planning a six-story, 110-unit residential building at 22 Burling Lane, in downtown New Rochelle. That’s in southern Westchester County. Dubbed Millennia, the project will have rental apartments ranging from studios to two-bedrooms, 11 of which will rent at below-market rates as affordable housing, Westfair reported. Amenities will include a fitness center, a yoga room, a business center with conference rooms, a lounge, private residential storage space, a pet park, and a 146-car parking garage. The developers also want to build a path along the New England Thruway (I-95) that connects to a park they’re planning at the end of Burling Street. The park will include an existing pedestrian bridge, expected to be reopened, that crosses the Thruway. The assemblage at 22-26 Burling Lane includes a two-and-a-half-story house and a three-story office building. Demolition is expected to begin in the next few weeks, with completion of the new building scheduled for 2017. The city’s Metro-North Railroad station is on the other side of the Thruway.
Purchase, N.Y.-based Zinrock Resources LP has recently received approval from the Planning Board of New Rochelle to construct nine eight-unit residential buildings, plus a clubhouse and gatehouse, at 700 Davenport Avenue, located on the southern tip of the city’s Davenport Neck section. That’s in southern Westchester County. The buildings can be as high as 60 feet (plus five feet if in a flood zone), the equivalent five stories, Westfair reported. All of the residential units will be three-bedroom condominiums ranging from 3,000 to 3,500 square feet apiece. The site is currently home to the roughly 500-member beach club Beckwith Pointe, which the developer is expected to begin demolishing next year. Zinrock payed the city $720,000 to privatize the club’s beachfront, but is still required to retain open space elsewhere.
Iona College is currently building a seven-story, 310-student dormitory at 690 North Avenue, in New Rochelle, located in Westchester County. According to Westfair, construction began early last year and the project was recently awarded a $2.5 million from the state Higher Education Capital Matching Grant Program Board. The building will feature publicly accessible retail and restaurant space on the ground floor. Completion is expected sometime later this year, before the start of the fall semester.
Last October, YIMBY brought you news that Anup Misra, head of East & Hudson Real Estate, is developing a six-story, 71-unit mixed-use building at 165 Huguenot Street, in downtown New Rochelle. Now, the Daily Voice has a rendering of the project, dubbed the Print House. The 64,000- square-foot building will feature studio, one-, and two-bedroom rental apartments, measuring between 500 and 975 square feet apiece. There will also be 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The New Rochelle Industrial Development Agency recently approved a 12-year Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) structure for the project, which is a tax incentive. An existing two-story commercial building must first be demolished. Construction is expected to begin this spring, with completion scheduled in 2017. Magnusson Architecture & Planning is behind the design.
