Townhouse-style rentals could be heading to Yorktown. The development proposal from Diversified Properties seeks to build 11 two-story rentals housing a total of 150 one- and two-bedroom units on Main Street, north of the Jefferson Valley Mall, LoHud reported. The project would include a pool, a clubhouse and pedestrian walkways. The 19.3-acre property sought by Diversified Properties in the hamlet of Yorktown Heights used to be farmland, according to LoHud. Yorktown officials will have to approve a zoning change that the developer needs in order to move forward with its plans. “This is another example where they are gearing toward both the empty-nesters and millennials — people who want to downsize and people who don’t want to purchase,” Yorktown Supervisor Ilan Gilbert told the outlet. [LoHud]
