White Plains Common Council recently approved construction of a new 296-unit apartment complex near the city’s northwest border. The complex is the latest project from BRP Companies, a Manhattan-based developer, and will occupy a 2.44-acre lot set.
While the assembly includes more than a dozen lots, the two buildings in the complex are called Building A at 20 Harlem Avenue and Building B at 27 Holland Avenue. Designed by Perkins Eastman, each building will feature a red and gray brick facade, industrial-style windows and recessed balconies for some residences.
As first reported by local media Westfair Communications, the residential program will include 59 studios, 148 one-bedroom units and 89 two-bedroom units, spread across two separate buildings. All apartments will be marketed as rental accommodation. Future occupants will have access to a fitness center, bicycle storage, a shared lounge and furnished outdoor spaces.
The development will also include a new 15,000 square foot public park, approximately 1,000 square feet of lower level retail and 216 parking spaces.
The transit-oriented property is located several blocks from the North White Plains station on the Harlem line of the Metro-North Railroad, making it an attractive draw for commuters.
âWith regard to the White Plains project, I think its proximity to the Metro-North station was the main factor in our interest as a company in completing this transaction,â said Rashid Walker, general manager of acquisitions at BRP Companies, in a statement released by Westfield. “The ability to get to Manhattan in 35 minutes on Metro-North was the main driver behind our decision to go ahead with this deal.”
At this stage of development, no construction schedule has been made public.
