Developer proposes Harrison rental building for empty-nesters, young couples

A Rye Brook-based developer hopes to build a five-story rental building in Harrison, LoHud reported. RPW Group’s development would house 150 rental units — including 88 one-bedroom apartments, 57 two-bedroom apartments and five three-bedroom apartments — and sit on 9.5 acres of currently vacant land on Webb Avenue. The site isn’t far from a business complex that RPW already owns at 800 Westchester Avenue, according to the outlet. (RPW reportedly received $24.1 million last summer after selling another nearby office building in Harrison.) The units would be aimed at “empty-nesters and young couples,” LoHud reported, and would be on the same street as a Wegmans grocery store currently in development. “This concept would allow people to live and work pretty much in the same space,” RPW founder and CEO Robert Weisz told the outlet. “We thought [it was] a perfect combination.” [LoHud]
