A five-story mixed-use building could replace the existing commercial buildings on two parcels in Larchmont, according to the Daily Voice Plus. The outlet noted last week that an affiliate of Rye-based developer Elk Homes plans to build a 26-unit condo building with 5,000 square feet of retail space on two properties at 108-114 Chatsworth Avenue and 65 Wendt AvenueKnown as Centro Larchmont and designed by architectural firm Perkins Eastman, the project would include parking and a pedestrian walkway. The proposed development “offers many benefits to the community,” Elk Homes chairman Gary Hirsch told DVP, noting that it would have “minimal impact on municipal services.” Elk Homes will need a special-use permit and an easement from the village to move forward with its plans. As for Hirsch, its chairman, he spoke with DVP last month about branch out from the housing market into luxury rentals. [DVP]
