The Westchester County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) has announced three mixed-use developments that are expected to create more that 3,000 construction jobs and approximately 1,800 residential units. All together, the properties represent $1.2 billion in private investments and are poised to invigorate the downtown White Plains area.
Colonial Court, the fourth residential development from Elk Homes, has topped out in Pelham, New York. Located in Westchester County at 8 Boulevard West, the five-story structure is the first of its kind following a revamping of zoning and building codes designed to encourage the expansion of mixed-use commercial, office, retail, and housing projects within the Village of Pelham.
There is now a green light for the $76.8 million mixed-use residential project to be built next to the Metro-North train station on Halstead Avenue in downtown Harrison, in Westchester County, and adjacent financial incentives. The Westchester County Industrial Development Agency unanimously approved $1,352,966 in sales tax exemptions for the transit-oriented development in late November. Avalon Bay Communities is bringing 143 rental units, seven affordable units, 27,000 square feet of commercial space, and 758 on-site parking spaces to the new three-building complex. That includes two landscaped plazas bridging the train station platform with Halstead Avenue, and a design that ties the new construction to the existing streetscape.
Westchester’s Industrial Development Agency has unanimously approved the construction of two mixed-use apartment complexes in White Plains, New York, dubbed The Collection.
The Ossining Children’s Center will soon develop a new, 27,000-square-foot building to house its entire operations under one roof. Founded in 1895, the nonprofit organization provides enrichment and recreation programs to young children in the surrounding community.
