Richard Lee
Updated 6:58 pm, Wednesday, March 5, 2014

One of Stamford's most venerable companies has followed up on a commitment made in November and announced that its headquarters is remaining in the city.

Pitney Bowes, the document and information technology management company that reported $3.9 billion in revenue last year, plans to move its headquarters this summer from 1 Elmcroft Road to 3001 Summer St., the owners of the seven-story office building said in a statement on Wednesday.

State Department of Environmental Conservation monitors cleanups before new construction can start

A number of contaminated properties in the Lower Hudson Valley are getting cleaned up and redeveloped as residential projects.

But are they safe places to live?

Developers and environmental remediation advocates say yes because the cleanups are typically regulated by the state Department of Environmental Conservation. The contamination often involves pollution from former automotive, chemical or industrial uses.

That's the case with the 47-unit Crestwood Station Plaza building across from the Crestwood train station in Tuckahoe, where much of the exterior work is compete. The mixed-use retail and residential project was a former gas station and auto-repair shop that operated since the 1930s before it became a commuter parking lot.

Over time, the group New Partners for Community Revitalization in Albany has received fewer concerns from the public about living on former brownfields because the state has a good record of monitoring developers, said Val Washington, its president.

"At the surface you can't have any contamination at all and, depending on how far below the contamination is, there are going to be restrictions on how the ground can be used," said Washington, an environmental attorney whose group advocates for the renewal of contaminated sites in low- and moderate-income urban areas.
Signs of Progressing Development in Westchester!

Clarkstown aims to create transit village in Nanuet


Clarkstown is studying the idea of relocating the Nanuet train station closer to the hamlet's business district and new shopping mall.

Khurram Saeed, [email protected] 12:02 p.m. EST January 16, 2015

Clarkstown is studying the idea of relocating the Nanuet train station closer to the hamlet's business district and new shopping mall.

At the very least, officials say the station — currently little more than a platform and heated shelter — needs to be overhauled, such as adding a coffee shop or eatery, to take full advantage of its prime location while helping to transform Nanuet into a quaint transit village.

White Plains - Westchester Pavilion - Update

From what I have read, the zoning change was approved to allow up to 860,000 square feet of development. So, we should be looking at something pretty BIG built there. Per the developer:

"Urstadt Biddle Properties secured a zone change from the City of White Plains in November 2014 that will allow as much as 860,000 square feet of mixed-use space to be developed at the site.

Willing L. Biddle, president and CEO of Urstadt Biddle Properties, in a release issued on March 11 on the company’s first quarter operating results acknowledged the zone change approval it received from the City of White Plains. He added, “We are working on preliminary site plan approval for that re-development and hope to have more progress to report on in the near future.”

Lennar in its application to the Westchester County IDA stated that the new development would entail a total of 851,900 square feet. The company, while describing the development as a “high-rise,” did not disclose the proposed height of the building or whether it would involve multiple buildings."

A request to rezone is with the City to allow buildings up to 280 feet.

Now:

Mamaroneck approves transit-focused rezoning

By Mark Lungariello
The area targeted for the rezone centers around the village’s Metro-North station and is expected to encourage redevelopment of properties long discouraged from seeking permits due to a hodgepodge of zoning. The rezoning reduces the amount of nonconforming lots in the zone from 85 percent to 35 percent, according to Frank Fish of BFJ.

The change creates an overlay zone in the area around the village’s main thoroughfare, Mamaroneck Avenue, and allows for mixed-use buildings in the corridor. Bonuses would be included for developers that construct affordable housing units in residential buildings or build retail or restaurant space on the ground floor of residential buildings, which would be limited to four stories or less. The area, within a quarter-mile of the train station, is expected to be an attractive option for educated millennials looking for walkable communities and access to public transportation to Manhattan.

White Plains - Downtown - Westchester Pavilion - ANOTHER UPDATE

Looks like a the new owner (Lennar MultiFamily Communities) will be purchasing the site from Urstadt Biddle.

Lennar is, per the article:

"Lennar...is proposing a “mixed-use facility, comprised of retail on the ground floor and multifamily dwellings above, together with associated parking and amenities” to replace the Westchester Pavilion at 60 S. Broadway. The developer anticipates 95,600 square feet for retail and 756,300 square feet of residential space."

Thats a big development, definitely hi-rise.

Interesting thread. I grew up in Bronxville - born in NYC - and I know all of these areas very well, especially Tuckahoe, Eastchester and Pelham as well as Bronxville. It's been a few years since I was there. There's quite a lot going on.

A few posts mentioned Fleetwood, which I know well. I did not see photos. Are they located elsewhere?

So much of southern and central Westchester is made up of the bedroom hamlets of NYC. There is very little opportunity for urban development in most of them.

The vast majority of it has to be limited to New Rochelle, Yonkers, Mt. Vernin and White Plains.

Right now it is but I am optimistic about Mamaroneck, Port Chester, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, and parts of Mount Pleasant and along the I-287 Corridor

I can see Tarrytown and Port Chester. From what I recall Tarrytown's residential area is very nice but the commercial district is in serious decline. So I think you have a point there.

But an upper crust enclave like Mamaroneck? Where?

Sleepy Hollow is a town I don't know at all

Well Mamaroneck recently passed a "relatively" massive zoning change for the area around the train station so that is why also Mamaroneck avenue and Main Street are kinda urbanized could be made a little bit more so

That's interesting. I would like to see what happens. Charming town.

Tarrytown's commercial district is in decline? I dont think so by a long shot. I was there last winter and the main drag (Main St) looked great.

Tarrytown is not in decline , the recent development along the River has further boosted the Downtown. And Congestion has only gotten worse along Route 9/Broadway...and Route 119 is not far behind in that dept.
