A new three-building residential complex has broken ground at 1133 Westchester Avenue in White Plains, New York. Designed by Cube 3 Architecture and developed in collaboration by The NRP Group and RPW Group, the complex is situated on a 70-acre site that previously served as IBM’s world headquarters.
When complete, each of the buildings will stand five stories above ground and will contain 303 market-rate apartments ranging from one- to three-bedroom units, some of which will have balconies. On-site amenity spaces will include a full-service gym, an outdoor pool, coworking space, and a mix of indoor and outdoor lounges.
Occupants will also have access to a shuttle offering service to the White Plains train station on the Metro-North Railroad’s Harlem Line, a local Wegmans, and a Lifetime Fitness gym, as well as additional stops in downtown White Plains.
“This project gives us an incredible opportunity to bring to life White Plains’ vision of creating communities that are flexible, transit-oriented, and in demand,” said NRP Group’s vice president of development Jonathan Gertman. “We feel lucky to have been chosen by RPW to partner on a project of such significance.”
Final renderings from the project team were also revealed in tandem with the announcement of the construction milestone. These illustrations depict a conventional massing with a gray and brown masonry façade, double-paned windows at every floor, and a club-style amenities deck at the edge of the property.
The development team anticipates completion by early 2022. The project will be constructed to LEED-certified standards and will include rooftop solar panels on all three buildings, as well as on-site electric vehicle charging stations.
