reposted from Crawford on SSP...



Quote:
There are at least six new towers planned for downtown White Plains, plus a massive redevelopment of the train station (including a new train station and multiple additional towers).

One of the developments is a twin-towered rental complex about to break ground next to the existing train station.

Another development is a two-tower condo complex with a huge retail base, on the site of the existing Westchester Pavillion. Will be more than 600 apartments and hundreds of thousands of square feet of retail.

There's a third twin-towered complex in planning, but I forget the specifics. It will be somewhere off Main Street on the site of existing parking.

But the train station development is the biggie. No details yet, but a RFP is out, and there will be a development plan selected this fall.

well, here's the one at the Pavilion.

Westchester Pavilion Redevelopment Plan Goes Before Common Council



By Colleen Wilson
August 21, 2015

Quote:
Plans for an estimated $277 million, 858,000-square-foot mixed-use development at the site of the struggling Westchester Pavilion in downtown White Plains have been referred to the White Plains Common Council this month after clearing a review by the city Planning Board. The proposed redevelopment of what both the developer and the owner have called an outlived property at 60 S. Broadway includes razing the existing structure and constructing two 24-story apartment towers, 95,000 square feet of commercial space and a below-ground parking garage.
[...]
Previously zoned as an enclosed mall, the property was rezoned in 2014 to allow for mixed-use residential and commercial development.
[...]
The property, encompassed by Hale Avenue, Maple Avenue and South Broadway, would include commercial space for a restaurant with outdoor dining, retail shops and a health club.
Designed for greater pedestrian access between the city’s Mamaroneck Avenue and East Post Road business corridor and the Bloomingdale Road shopping area, the project would include an expanded sidewalk and publicly accessible courtyard.
[...]
In an application for financing with the Westchester County Industrial Development Agency filed earlier this year, the developer estimated construction costs at $277 million and presented a timeline that has construction beginning in May 2016. The developer is seeking exemptions on sales and mortgage recording taxes from the county.
I made a thread in the highrises section we can revive later if things progress https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1847074

Glad they went the high rise route. I wonder what the street level view is from Maple and S. Broadway?

Definitely an improvement to what is there now...that goes without saying.

White Plains continues to go vertical.

Its now called:

"THE DISTRICT at WESTCHESTER".

There are some more renderings from Lennar's website:

http://lennarcommercial.com/property...t-westchester/

I hope it plays with the street well, the left pic looks very promising, the center one not as much but still good. Either way, a huge addition to the skyline; one of the larger skylines in the USA for a city of only 60K residents I would imagine.

There are quite a few TOD's near stations already , at least in larger towns. Its the smaller towns that don't have them...but I can't see people in Westchester opposing them.

here's the one by the station... I haven't payed much attention so I don't know if this one is in progress as suggested by this over half year old article. 16 stories won't effect the skyline but the extra density is a good thing.

http://westfaironline.com/73371/fres...s-transit-hub/

By Colleen Wilson August 6, 2015

Quote:
Two residential and retail towers were approved by the Westchester County Industrial Development Agency earlier this year at 55 Bank St. that will include 562 combined market and affordable apartment units and 6,400 square feet of retail space. The address is less than a quarter-mile from the train station, which Roach described as “extremely valuable real estate.” “We want to have this study to determine what’s best for this city and then go out to developers.”

WHITE PLAINS – — The redevelopment of land surrounding the downtown transit hub took a big step forward Thursday with the announcement of a new project at 55 Bank St. that will include two 16-story apartment buildings.

It's good news for people looking for walk-to-train market-rate rental apartments. The site, currently a commuter parking lot, is just south of the train station.

The 760,000-square-foot complex will include 449 market-rate rental apartments, 112 affordable rental units, 6,300 square feet of retail space and a 570-space parking garage. Construction is expected to begin in March.

SLCE is apparently the architect. they list the height at 178' 3" or 54 m tall.

a new 24 story tower for DT Yonkers is underway. The White Plains towers at 55 Bank Street are also mentioned.

New investors spark a revival in downtown redevelopment

By John Golden
September 17, 2015

Quote:
In Yonkers, owners of Collins Enterprises and city officials were joined by their new Chinese business partners at a Sept. 15 groundbreaking ceremony for Hudson Park River Club, a 24-story, 230,000-square-foot building that will include 213 studio and one- and two-bedroom rental units. Ning Yuan, chairman and CEO of Strategic Capital and president of China Construction America, said he expects his company’s $85 million project, in which Collins Enterprises holds an equity stake, will be completed in late 2017.
Quote:
[...]
At 55 Bank St. in White Plains, LCOR initially will build a 16-story tower with 288 rental units, 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a 381-space underground parking garage. The development is expected to open in spring or summer of 2017.

The second phase of the 55 Bank St. development will include a second 16-story tower with 273 rental units, 3,350 square feet of ground-floor retail space and underground and above-grade parking for 570 vehicles.

“Our intention is to build out both towers and our timing for the second phase will be based on the market,” said James M. Dris

Hudson Park in Yonkers breaks ground on 3rd building

Christine Gritmon, 6:35 p.m. EDT September 16, 2015

Quote:
After years of delays, construction has begun on the third and final phase of the Hudson Park development in Yonkers. The residential Hudson Park River Club will join mixed-use Hudson Park North and Hudson Park South, which were completed in 2008 and 2003.

The new 230,000-square-foot building will house 213 studio and one- and two-bedroom rental units, a health club and an event space. It will be built on a riverfront parcel directly behind an existing multi-level garage, which will first receive two extra levels.
[...]
The project is part of the Brownfield Tax Credit Program, a federal rehabilitation effort for cleanup and development of previously contaminated properties. The program will reimburse up to 20 percent of the construction costs of the project, as long as it is completed by the end of 2017.
[...]
