The Port Chester Planning Commission and members of the public will soon review proposals for a new nine-story mixed-use building in the village’s downtown area. The public hearing is scheduled for January 27, when Sarrazin Architecture and members of the development team are expected to present the project, which is located at 30 Broad Street and 136 Irving Avenue.
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 high-rise development would comprise 407,000 square feet with 286 apartments, 12,600 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, and 267 parking spaces.
Greenwich, Conn.-based Starwood Capital Group’s mixed-use mega-development planned at the former 15-acre United Hospital campus, at 406 Boston Post Road in Port Chester, N.Y., is moving into the approval process, according to Westfair. The project would include the demolition of the existing medical complex, which would be replaced by 730 mixed-income residential units, a 135-key hotel, 217,000 square feet of medical office space, and 90,000 square feet of commercial-retail. It’s expected to complete the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process, by acquiring a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), and receive zoning approval sometime later this year. Local community coalition Sustainable Port Chester Alliance has also recently proposed an agreement that would include preserving the 13-story, 134-unit rental building at 999 High Street, which is unfortunately expected to be demolished in the process. Construction is expected to begin in 2018 following the necessary approvals.
Manhattan-based developer G&S Investors is planning to build a five-story mixed-use project with up to 79 residential units at 59 Westchester Avenue or 1 North Main Street, in Port Chester, Westfair reports. The site is currently a parking lot and located two blocks from the village’s Metro-North Railroad station. It would include 14,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and many of the units would be studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms. The village board would have to approve a zoning variance, which is a process hoped to be completed by the end of 2016.
