NEW ROCHELLE | 14 Lecount Pl. | FT | 2 x 27 FLOORS


#1

Unrelated to RXR, but here’s a new project brought to you by Beyer, Blinder & Belle. Fresh from the planning board meeting, they are proposing two-27 story towers with a 4 story podium consisting of retail, commercial space, and parking spaces… the towers are actually 23 stories alone. The project includes frontage on North Ave, Main St, and Lecount Pl. In total there’s about 14,000 sq. ft. of commercial space.

Additional details to come soon, here’s just shots of what they presented for now.

@ Nikolai/ Andrew Nelson,

This might make for a good morning story on the main site.

Great info nramacciato. :smile:

Its good to see this small boom in New Rochelle. Some solid developments. Residential I presume. Any word on the unit counts?

Cheers. I just enjoy sharing the info I come across about the work going on around here. I’m loving all of the activity. It would definitely make for a good story, but I think having an official rendering would really make it a great story :slight_smile:

Correct, mostly residential. 500 apartments in total. No idea about the way it’s all divided, but I’m assuming there’s a good mix of studios, one, and two bedrooms. Maybe some three bedrooms thrown in as well.

At 14 Lecount – with a development site that extends to Main Street and North Avenue, Wilder-Balter proposes two more towers, each 27 stories, with a total of about 500 apartments, a project that will include the redesign and activation of Anderson Plaza. This goes to the Planning Board this month, with a ground-breaking planned by the end of 2018.

Phase one, a $166 million, 27-story building that is within walking distance from the city’s train station, received Planning Board approval in April. The tower will house 379 units, approximately 84 are studio apartments, 207 are one-bedrooms and 87 are two-bedrooms.

Seventy-six units will be rented at a reduced rate.

The developers said demolition of the funeral home and three reatail buildings on the site will take place this summer, with construction expected to begin in early fall. The project will take an estimated 28 months to complete.

They actually already filed for demolition permits on most of the properties they purchased :wink:

The IDA also granted incentives for a $166.1 million structure at 14 Le Count Place, including a 30-year pilot agreement costing $20.4 million. The pilot saves the developer $32.6 million in property taxes, a 62 percent break. It also received a sales tax exemption estimated at $5.1 million and mortgage recording tax exemption of $1.1 million.

The project is expected to create 758 construction jobs and then one part-time and 10 full-time jobs.

L+M Partners has updated their website with a page for this project, including a rendering of the first tower.

https://lmdevpartners.com/projects/14-lecount-place/

L+M Development Partners, together with Wilder Balter Partners, Inc., is developing a mixed-use and mixed-income residential rental building in downtown New Rochelle. The development will rise to 27 stories and contain 380 residences, in addition to structured parking and retail.

Centrally located in downtown New Rochelle, just off Main Street, the project will be a five-minute walk from the Metro North and Amtrak rail stop. It will also take advantage of easy access to the I-95 and the Hutchinson River Parkway.

Construction is slated to begin in late 2018.
