After a delay of several months, construction is now moving forward at The Heathcote, the new 14-unit 43,000 square foot residential development at the Five Corners in Scarsdale. John Malabre of the New York City-based construction management firm REDCOM CM is taking over as the new builder, with the development team of Steve Oder and Andrew and Fred Fish of 2-4 Weaver Street Owner Corp. as project developers.
Malabre brings more than 30 years of construction experience, including Manhattan projects such as The Lipstick Building, the expansion of the Grand Central PO, the construction of several SoHo and Tribeca lofts, renovations on Upper East Side townhouses, and managing the conversion of the Stanhope Hotel into condominiums with Extell Development. Additional projects have included 834 Fifth Avenue, The San Remo and The Beresford, as well as projects in the Hamptons. Current REDCOM CM projects in Manhattan and Brooklyn include $85 million in commercial developments as well as $25 million in hotels and Upper East Side condos.
Malabre commented that a great deal of progress has already been made on the Heathcote. "The steel work is complete, and we expect the model unit, lobby and the Weaver Street exterior elevation to be completed by year end," he said. "The project will be completed by summer of 2017."
Built on the site of the former Heathcote Tavern, the new residential construction project is the first of its kind in Scarsdale in over 60 years. Featuring large two- and three-bedroom apartments the building will have no age restrictions, offers access to Scarsdale schools and is pet friendly. Buyers will have the opportunity to incorporate their own design tastes and give input into choice of stone, kitchen and bath cabinetry, floor styles, lighting and millwork. Each unit will feature architectural details, bright expansive rooms with high ceilings, gas fireplaces and outdoor terraces. Buyers can choose from many optional upgrades such as "smart home" automation units, a multimedia home theater set up, paneled libraries, motorized shades, wine rooms as well as fully equipped outdoor kitchens in the penthouse apartments.
"We are excited to welcome John Malabre and REDCOM CM to this highly anticipated project, and have every confidence that the company's vast experience in multi-residential luxury development makes them the perfect addition to the team," said Dawn Knief.
Dawn Knief and Mary Katchis of Julia B. Fee Sotheby's International Realty's Scarsdale brokerage are representing the listings for sale, and are currently accepting reservations for private appointments to view the plans and options for customization.
