Why a millennial-targeted rental building in White Plains won’t offer parking

A developer with plans to build an 18-unit apartment building in White Plains is banking on the tenants being millennials who don’t need a place to park. Sackman Enterprises recently snapped up a vacant building on East Post Road and wants to add three stories of residential space to the top, but isn’t including parking in its plan, LoHud reported. That concerned some members of the White Plains Planning Board, according to the outlet, but Sackman Enterprises’ attorney Jane Giris explained that the planned apartments are “generally occupied by millennials.” “Millennials don’t have cars, as a practical matter,” she said. “They’re big users of Uber and Zipcars.” Monthly rent for the apartments will likely be between $1,700 and $1,900, and the ground floor of the finished building will house a restaurant. [LoHud]
