Harlem-based Grid Properties is planning a four-story, 230,000-square-foot mixed-use development, dubbed the Boulevard, at 77 West Post Road, located on the southern end of downtown White Plains, in Westchester County. The latest plans call for 220,000 square feet of commercial-retail space, 38,000 square feet of which will be dedicated to a fitness center, Westfair reported. Twelve market-rate one-bedroom rental townhouses are also part of the plan, in addition to a 720-car parking garage. The project was presented to the city’s Common Council back in November, although it will eventually have to be approved by the city’s Planning Board. Philadelphia-based BLT Architects is behind the design. The assemblage is comprised of mostly vacant parcels and single-story commercial buildings.
Since plans were announced in July of 2015 for a three-story, 55-unit residential project at 1177 Warburton Avenue, located on the far-northern end of Yonkers, a groundbreaking ceremony was recently held, Westfair reported. Dubbed [email protected], the new building will contain luxury rental apartments ranging from 680-square-foot one-bedrooms to 1,245-square-foot three-bedrooms. Amenities include a fitness center and a club room, in addition to a private path to the Greystone station on Metro-North Railroad. Valhalla, N.Y.-based Ginsburg Development Companies is the developer. Completion is expected in 2017. Four vacant, single-family homes were demolished to make way for the new building.
Capital Seniors Housing LLC is now presenting plans to the Greenburgh Town Board for their three-story, 101-unit senior housing project at 715 Dobbs Ferry Road, in Greenburgh. That’s a town in southern Westchester County. The building will measure 90,651 square feet, according to Westfair. There will be 71 assisted living units ranging from studios to two-bedrooms or 350 square feet to 900 square feet. Five of the assisted living units will be designated as affordable. In addition, there will be 30 memory-care units ranging from studios to one-bedrooms or 350 square feet to 650 square feet. The building will be surrounded by a 67-car parking lot. Supportive services will be included. The presentation comes after the town board, in December, approved a deal to sell the property to the developer for $3.5 million. The 6.89-acre site, once home to Frank’s Nursery & Crafts, must first be remediated. Meyer Design is behind the architecture.
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.
