Proposals for a 179-foot-tall development at 44 Broad Street in Port Chester, White Plains, would require a new zoning district defined by building height versus stories. Located between Irving Avenue and King Street, the 17-story mixed-use building would sit on a nine-parcel lot adjacent to Port Chester’s Metro-North Railroad station. Although the Port Chester village board of trustees is reviewing zoning codes for the area, developer Broad Street Owner LLC is petitioning for an immediate change to get the transit-oriented project underway. The development would comprise 407,000 square feet with 286 apartments, 12,600 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, and 267 parking spaces.
According to White Plains-based Papp Architects, two levels of parking would be below grade and two-and-a-half levels would be above grade. The upper garage levels are screened by the retail component and façade elements, veiling them from the exterior. Above the garage are the residential floors with a penthouse rooftop amenity space on the 17th story.
The retail space would be on the first floor on Broad Street as well as on North Pearl Street, with a residential lobby on Irving. Catering to market demands, the retail component can be leased as a single space or divided into smaller spaces.
As reported in Westfair, a resolution was passed accepting the developer’s zoning petition, declaring the board of trustees to be the lead agency for the proposed action, and directing the the preparation of the zoning text before it goes before the village’s planning commission and the Westchester County Planning Board.
No details have been released regarding a potential start date for the project.
