At 250 Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains, Southern Lands Company began construction on Juliette, a brand new luxury apartment complex with 177 units.

The project is SLC’s third in New York and the first in White Plains. SLC’s $100 million commitment to the neighborhood includes construction of Juliette as well as financial support for the YMCA of Central and North Westchester. Previously, the YMCA was housed in a building that required expensive maintenance to operate at 250 Mamaroneck Avenue. The YMCA has moved to 148 Hamilton Avenue in White Plains, where it will continue to serve the community through a multi-year agreement with SLC.

When completed, Juliette will comprise 177 market-priced apartment houses that respect the building’s past. This will be done using components from the original YMCA building that once stood on the property. With apartments averaging 1,200 square feet, residents will be able to choose from a variety of apartment building styles. They include one-, two-, and three-bedroom options.

A courtyard including a swimming pool, a spa, a garden terrace, a barbecue, an outdoor fireplace, a relaxation area and a bicycle storage room will be part of the amenities. For Juliette, additional amenities include a pet spa, bike repair/work shop, resident lounge, and meeting space.

Juliette is a community that welcomes residents of all ages looking for a mix of urban and suburban living. It is located in downtown White Plains, close to economic opportunities, educational institutions, health facilities, and recreational interests. The apartment district will have access to Grand Central Terminal, JFK, La Guardia and Newark airports, as well as two Metro-North stations, the Bee-Line, major roads and Westchester County Airport.

The development will also return the land to city tax rolls and create approximately 400 new jobs in the neighborhood. Tim Downey, Founder and CEO of SLC, said, “We are delighted to begin the construction phase of this project as it means we are one step closer to revitalizing part of the city core.
