There is now a green light for the $76.8 million mixed-use residential project to be built next to the Metro-North train station on Halstead Avenue in downtown Harrison, in Westchester County, and adjacent financial incentives. The Westchester County Industrial Development Agency unanimously approved $1,352,966 in sales tax exemptions for the transit-oriented development in late November. Avalon Bay Communities is bringing 143 rental units, seven affordable units, 27,000 square feet of commercial space, and 758 on-site parking spaces to the new three-building complex. That includes two landscaped plazas bridging the train station platform with Halstead Avenue, and a design that ties the new construction to the existing streetscape.
Paramus, N.J.-based Hornrock Properties is proposing a five-story, 260-unit residential building at 1 Harrison Avenue, located on the corner of Dey Street in Harrison, New Jersey, across the Passaic River from downtown Newark. The project will include 267 off-street parking spaces, probably in the form of a parking garage, Jersey Digs reported. The site is largely vacant except for a defunct gas station and a dilapidated two-story warehouse. The Harrison Town Planning Board must approve the project. NJ Transit’s Newark Broad Street station is five blocks away.
The Harrison, N.Y., Town Board has approved plans to build two five-story residential buildings, with a total of 421 residential units, at 105 Corporate Park Drive. Harrison is in southern Westchester County. The residential units will be rental apartments, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms, of which 10 percent (42 units) will be designated as affordable. The complex will be accommodated by 752 parking spaces and a 5,400-square-foot restaurant. The 10.35-acre property is currently occupied by two three-story, 87,700-square-foot office buildings built during the 1970s. Both will be demolished, although the residential complex will take on a similar footprint. Normandy Real Estate Partners and Toll Brothers are the developers. Sullivan Architecture is behind the design. Construction is expected to start during the first half of 2017.
The Hampshire Companies’ four-story, 104-unit residential complex at 221 Bergen Street, in Harrison, New Jersey — located a few blocks away from the PATH station — is now open for occupancy, according to Real Estate Weekly. CrownPoint Group is also a partner in the project, and the residential units will all be rentals. Ground broke on the project only a year ago. The building’s amenities include a lounge, fitness room, garage and storage areas, and a rooftop terrace.
Normandy Real Estate Partners and Toll Brothers are planning to build a six-story, 421-unit residential complex at 103-105 Corporate Park Drive, in Westchester County’s Harrison. The site is located in “the teardrop” — the swath of land flanked by I-684, the Hutch, the CWE and an interchange, which mostly consists of office parks. Activists are currently rallying for the inclusion of affordable units, reports Westfair Communications.
