A developer hopes to construct a mixed-use project at the former site of the Westchester Financial Center. Ginsburg Development Companies, which acquired the two-building, 571,000-square-foot property earlier this year for $83 million, presented plans on Nov. 26 for a development known as “City Square” to White Plains’ Common Council, LoHud reported. The project would include luxury rentals, restaurants, retail space, offices and a rooftop park, according to the outlet. “City Square will become a real mixed-use location in Westchester County for people to live, work, play and dine…,” Ginsburg Development founder and principal Martin Ginsburg told the council. LoHud noted that the developer snapped up a 124-unit apartment building near the site last year for $35 million. Council members have voiced support for the project, saying it would bring much-needed retail and office space to downtown White Plains, as well as foot traffic. [LoHud]
