The developer of a $200 million project in downtown Yonkers is facing a lawsuit, which claims that construction has damaged neighboring buildings. Gateway Loft Associates and Alma Realty Corp. filed the $2 million suit against RXR Realty claiming construction activities at RXR’s Larkin Plaza development have “caused substantial physical damage” to their buildings, which are adjacent to the project, the Westchester County Business Journal reports. A spokesman for RXR said some minor damage occurred when construction started, but maintained RXR has “worked collaboratively with the neighbor to shore up the building.” The mixed-use project, which features 439 apartments and retail space spread across multiple buildings, has been under construction since December 2016. [WBJ]
