A Mamaroneck-based developer is building 36 luxury apartments around a now-shuttered movie theater, the Westchester County Business Journal reported. Verco Properties broke ground on a development called the Harrison Playhouse Lofts, which will rise around a “1920s-era theater [in Harrison] that played its last picture more than a decade ago,” according to the outlet. Verco Properties partner John Verni said the project will revitalize the town’s downtown area. “For too long Harrison has had a downtown that did not match the vibrancy of this great town,” he said at the project’s groundbreaking. “Today, that is going to change.” Verco plans to refurbish the retail spaces at the site and install a coffee shop. The developer shelled out around $2.5 million for the former theater in 2006. [WBJ]
