Plans Submitted for New Rochelle’s New Tallest Building at 11 Lawton Street

plans were recently filed for a 48-story skyscraper at 11 Lawton Street. In addition to the 605-foot tower, the site will also house a separate 23-story hotel building.

[...]

proposal calls for 596 residential units, with 453 rentals and 143 for sale in the taller tower. An automated garage with 621 parking spaces will span the below-ground floors as well as some of the podium levels. The first floor is designated as retail space and residences will start on the fifth floor. Amenities, exclusive to residents, will be located on the 31st floor.

The second tower will have 228 hotel rooms beginning on the fifth floor. The former National City Bank of New Rochelle currently occupying the site will be converted into a hotel lobby and restaurant and serve as the podium of this structure.

satellite cities need to grow too. New Rochelle is pushing hard to attract millenials and empty nesters who can't afford to live within NYC proper. They're trying to make it a destination with a vibrant downtown rather than a commuter city with a suburban identity. This is happening in Yonkers and White Plains as well, but the visual impact will be less radical.

here's a list of new highrise projects in New Rochelle:
  1. 360 Hugenot (587 Main St) | 28 floors - T/O
  2. 26 S. Division Street | 2 x 28 floors - Prep
  3. 14 Lecount Place | 2 x 27 floors - Demo
  4. 45 Harrison Street (firehouse) | 27 floors - App
  5. 500 Main Street | 26 floors - App
  6. Second Tower at 255 Hugenot Street | 25 floors
  7. 277 North Avenue | 23 floors - App
  8. 11 Garden Street | 20 floors - App
  9. 251 North Avenue | 14 floors - T/O
  10. 26 Garden Street | 14 floors - Pro
  11. 316 Hugenot Street | 14 floors - App
  12. 327 + 339 Hugenot Street | 14 floors x 2 App
  13. 64 Centre Street | 14 floors - App
the two projects that have already materialized since 2015 http://101010nr.com/maps/index.asp#development

Thanks for the list, I wasn't aware that there were that many more still coming up.

Agreed about the satellite cities, I particularly like the impact of the New Rochelle skyline due to its visibility across the LI sound.

I assume it has a good public transport system to NYC?
Yes and no.

On the pictures posted of the New Rochelle buildings, you might notice the tracks of the Metro North commuter rail, so it takes about 45 minutes to get to Grand Central 42nd st in Manhattan. However it is packed and not always on time. The station is right in the center of town and all these buildings are in its walking distance proximity. The city center is right next to a highway exit, it has express buses to nyc, but just like driving, you are hostage to the traffic conditions on rush hour. So you could get to Midtown in 30 minutes... or 90.
It is a pleasant town to live in, plenty of amenities for the inhabitants of the area to go for leisure and entertainment rather than deal with Manhattan.

The Hell Gate line will meet up in New Rochelle and provide service to the Bronx , Queens and Midtown West/Penn Station.

Ahhh I didn't know it was going to run through Queens!
Nice, there really aren't enough options for the north-eastern bronx as it is, this would be a game-changer as an express line compared to the 2,5 or 6

Developer DB Main and Lawton, LLC's much-anticipated, two-tower structure at 11 Lawton St. got the green light from the city's planning board.

[...]

“In short, this is among the most significant projects in New Rochelle’s history, and one that will meaningfully advance our efforts to create a thriving, attractive and sustainable city center," Mayor Noam Bramson said. “11 Lawton Street exemplifies the goals of our downtown renewal plan through its inclusion of high-quality housing, modern retail and hotel space, innovative architecture and adaptive reuse of a beloved historic structure."
