Construction of a 361-unit rental building in Yonkers can now take place after a two-year delay to remove pollution from the site. Developer DW Capital is looking to build a 25-story tower with an automated three-story parking garage at 41 Buena Vista Avenue, according to Lohud.com. The property was largely dormant for about two years because the property was in the New York State DEC Brownfields Program and cleanup of ground pollution took longer than expected, a consultant for the developer said. The site is the former location of Teutonia Hall, an 1892 German American music and literary venue. The developer plans to repurpose some of Teutonia Hall’s decorative elements in the garage’s facade. [LoHud]
