Post Chester, N.Y.-based Street-Works Development is proposing a multi-building, 895,000-square-foot mixed-use project at 200 Hamilton Avenue, in downtown White Plains, in Westchester County. The project would include 600 residential units across 500,000 square feet of space, with 10 percent, or 60 units, designated as affordable. There would also be 95,000 square feet of retail, two public green spaces, and a 720-car parking garage, Westfair reported. The city’s Common Council must approve the project, which requires a zoning change. The site, bound by Baker and Hamilton avenues, Cottage Place, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, is occupied by the two-story White Plains Mall, a multi-tenant commercial-retail property.
Long Island-based American Equity Partners is preparing to file applications to convert the 12-story, 350,000-square-foot office building at 440 Hamilton Avenue, located on the corner of North Broadway in downtown White Plains, into 245 rental apartments. Twenty-five of the units, roughly 10 percent of the total, will be designated as affordable. The project includes a redesigned façade and the addition of a 13th-floor penthouse, Westfair reported. A ground-floor retail unit is also planned, and it’s possible up to two floors of office space could remain, depending on demand. White Plains-based Papp Architects is designing the conversion. The project will go before the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals.
A groundbreaking ceremony has been held for the 28-story, 280-unit mixed-use tower under development at 587 Main Street, in downtown New Rochelle, in southern Westchester County. The project is a redevelopment of the abandoned two-story Loew’s Theater, Westfair reported. The theater’s façade will be preserved and restored, while the performance space will be converted into a 10,000-square-foot black box theater. In addition, the base will include 17,000 square feet of commercial space and a 234-car parking garage. The residential units in the tower will be rentals. RXR Realty, Brause Realty, and ABS Partners Real Estate are the developers. Paulus, Sokolowski and Sartor (PS&S) is the architect and completion is expected in late 2018.
Renderings have been revealed of the six-story, 77-unit residential building proposed at 1 Dekalb Avenue, located on the corner of Maple Avenue in White Plains. The project was initially proposed to the city back in September and the White Plains Common Council is expected to vote on it by the end of the year, the Journal News reported. The units would be rental apartments and the new building would include a 103-car underground parking garage.
Construction has reportedly topped off on the pair of 10-story residential buildings under development at 1133 Warburton Avenue, located in the Greystone neighborhood in northwestern Yonkers. There will be 330 luxury rental apartments between the two buildings, dubbed River Tides at Greystone, Westfair reported. The units will range from studios to two-bedrooms, with amenities including a fitness center, outdoor swimming pool and deck. Ginsburg Development Companies is the developer and Warshauer Mellusi Warshauer is the architect. Occupancy is expected in the spring of 2017. Metro-North Railroad’s Greystone station is a stone’s throw away.
