Toll Brothers tears down an office to build apartments on Harrison’s Platinum Mile
This demolition of a three-story office building on Corporate Park Drive began this week, making way for a 421-unit apartment complex to be built by the Toll Brothers and its partner Normandy Real Estate Partners. The five-story luxury rental community named Carraway will be the first residential project on Harrison’s Platinum Mile — an area previously dominated by — you guessed it! — corporate headquarters. Harrison has been searching for new uses for its excess stock of office buildings as corporations have moved away. “It’s a slow process, but we’re moving,” Harrison Mayor Ron Belmont told the Westchester Business Journal. “We’re taking the local rather than the express.” The building is expected to welcome its first tenants in 2019.

Megalith breaks ground on 6-story apartment building in downtown New Rochelle

The Printhouse at 165 Hugenot Street in New Rochelle is the latest Westchester apartment building hoping to land millennials priced out of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Manhattan developer Megalith Capital Management and partner Fleetwood East & Hudson, who are constructing the project, held a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday. The 71 units in the six-story building are a part of a larger revitalization plan, for which RDRXR — a partnership between Residence Downtowns and RXR Realty — is the “master developer.” The building has amenities including a rooftop terrace, lounge, fitness center and retail space on the bottom floor. It’s located near the Metro-North station. [Chappaqua Daily Voice, WBJ]
