Edge-on-Hudson

Infrastructure Work Begins for 1,177-Unit Mixed-Use Mega-Development Edge-On-Hudson, Sleepy Hollow, Westchester Co.

Back in 2014, Diversified Realty Advisors and California-based SunCal closed on the purchase, for $39.5 million, of the 70-acre former General Motors factory site in Sleepy Hollow, located just north of the Tappan Zee Bridge in Westchester County. Now, the developers have held a groundbreaking ceremony for their mixed-use mega-development called Edge-on-Hudson, Westfair reports. The project will include 1,177 residential units (a mix of condos, townhouses, and rentals), a 140-key boutique hotel, 135,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and 30,000 square feet of office space. Some of the units will rent at below-market rates to seniors and lower-income families. Sixteen acres will be made into parkland and a riverfront promenade.

In August of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 42-story, 550-unit mixed-use building at 685 First Avenue, located between East 39th and 40th streets in Murray Hill. Now, new details and renderings of the building have been revealed by the Wall Street Journal. The 459-foot-tall tower will actually contain 556 residential units and measure a whopping 828,000 square feet in its entirety. Two-thirds of the units will be rental apartments while the remaining one-third will be condominiums. Amenities include an underground 110-car garage, storage for 282 bikes, laundry facilities, a pool, a fitness center, a library, and recreational and assembly rooms. There will also be 10,088 square feet of ground-floor retail. Richard Meier & Partners Architects is behind the design, and Sheldon Solow is the developer. Excavation is reportedly underway, and completion is expected in 2018.

Earlier this week, YIMBY brought you a new rendering of the mixed-use supertall tower planned at 45 Broad Street, in the Financial District, but now new building applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings. The 371,634-square-foot tower, which has been marketed as 86 stories, will actually have 64 real floors and will stand 1,115 feet above street level. It will also have 150 residential units, which is significantly less than the previous figure of 245. The apartments should average 1,394 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums, and units will come in studio to three-bedroom configurations. There will also be 48,077 square feet of office space on the third through eighth floors. The project’s 20,000 square feet of amenities will be located on three sub-cellar levels and the ninth through eleventh floors. Madison Equities, Pizzarotti-IBC, and AMS Acquisitions are the developers, and CetraRuddy is behind the design. Excavation is expected to begin later this year, with completion of the tower scheduled for 2018.
