SLEEPY HOLLOW | Edge-on-Hudson | U/C



Quote:
A development team led by Jonathan Stein’s Diversified Realty Advisors and California-based SunCal completed the purchase of the former General Motors plant site in Sleepy Hollow on Tuesday.

The first phase of the 1,177-unit, 170,000 square-foot commercial, retail and hotel development known as Lighthouse Landing will consist of some condos, townhomes and a rental building, but site approval and infrastructure work could take another year.

Pre-planning has been ongoing since the group contracted to buy the roughly 70 acres on the west and south portions of the site last year. The purchase price and contributions to Sleepy Hollow will total just over $50 million, sources said. The parties could not be reached or declined comment.

I am pretty sure this development has been renamed "EDGE ON HUDSON"

http://www.lohud.com/story/news/loca...ouse/71026548/

The development plan to rejuvenate the former General Motors Assembly site on the Sleepy Hollow waterfront area has a new name: Edge-on-Hudson.

Developers SunCal and Diversified Realty Advisors are teaming on the $1 billion joint venture, announced in late 2014 by the village and Westchester County.

The development, spread over 65 acres, will include over one thousand condominiums, townhomes and apartments, a hotel, entertainment, retail and office space, and 24 acres of parks and gardens.

Peter Johnson, one of the head developers at SunCal, said that development may begin in late 2015, with buildings being completed as early as 2017.

wow, those renderings actually make it look nice. Nicer than the other riverfront developments along the hudson waterfront in numerous locations of the past decade, at least.

Nexis - Another great article here. This has broken ground and is definitely happening. If all goes as planned, this will be one of the premier spots on the Hudson River.

Long-delayed development stirs to life in Sleepy Hollow
By John Golden

May 19, 2016

[..]

When fully built, Edge-on-Hudson will include 1,177 condominiums, townhouses and rental apartments; a 140-room boutique hotel that will be the first hotel in Sleepy Hollow; 135,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and 30,000 square feet of office space; about 16 acres of parkland for public use and a riverfront promenade connecting the Westchester Riverwalk and Kingsland Point Park, which abuts the northern end of the site.

[..]

“This is not going to be a gated community,” Peter Johnson, executive vice president at SunCal, said at the groundbreaking. “We see this as bringing the waterfront back to the community and bringing the community back to the river.”

[...]

The developers have begun building a temporary bridge for the construction project on Beekman Avenue, where the development’s main entrance will be. That work is expected to be completed in about three weeks, after which workers will begin demolishing the auto plant’s concrete and asphalt slab and import fill material to the site. Johnson said utilities — water and sewer lines and electrical service — should be installed by fall. The first residences will begin to rise in 2017 and should open in 2018, he said.

It would be awfully close to both Tarrytown and Philips Manor station... So building it might be an expensive waste , but at the same time given the narrow roads to Tarrytown Station and lack of connection to Philips Manor Station along with all those units it could be worth it in a way...

I crossed the TZB and noticed some excavation equipment all over the place at this site. Possibly other heavy machinery.

Haven't heard much in the media, but the site still looks very active whenever I cross the TZB.
