Westchester’s Industrial Development Agency has unanimously approved the construction of two mixed-use apartment complexes in White Plains, New York, dubbed The Collection.
The first property, Westmoreland Lofts at 138-158 Westmoreland Avenue, will contain 62 residential units, ground floor retail and commercial area, unspecified amenity areas, and a rooftop terrace. Ten percent of the units will be “affordable” homes.
Nearby, 81-100 Westchester Avenue will comprise 276 residential units spread across two buildings. Seventeen units will be reserved for low-income families and individuals. The development will also deliver 24,526 square feet of retail space and 716 parking spaces.
Together, the projects are expected to create nearly 400 new construction and permanent jobs, which county officials call a significant investment in the local economy. The developments are also privately funded and therefore will arrive at no cost or risk to taxpayers.
