Category: Mixed-Used Development | Year: 2019
| Place: Yonkers, NY
Currently a vacant lot along a prime corridor of Getty Square, Yonkers, we plan to create a mixed used project that retains the current look of the existing streetscape but with a modern touch. In maximizing what’s allowable under the DMX zoning code for downtown, Erin was awarded Planning Board approval to improve upon the vacant lot with a 9-story mixed use residential and commercial building that will house 29 rental apartments over approximately 15,000 square feet and two ground floor commercial spaces totalling 2,150 square feet. Apartment mix is six (6) studios, 21 one bedrooms and two (2) two bedrooms. There will be a roof top terrace, a common area of 700 square feet for resident use only, basement storage and bike rack.
9-11 Riverdale Avenue is located within the neighborhood of Getty Square, a dense and growing residential part of Yonkers with a bustling and vibrant retail shopping environment. There are farmers’ markets, a CSA and thriving restaurants of all cuisines. Getty Square’s heavy pedestrian foot traffic is bolstered by its role as a key transit hub of Yonkers and Westchester. Bee-Line buses, MTA express buses, Metro-North Railroad, and Amtrak converge in Getty Square and connections are often little more than a few blocks. Getty Square’s WalkScore of 95 out of 100 is the highest of any neighborhood in Westchester, making it one of the best places in Westchester County to be car-free. The neighborhood enjoys close access to the waterfront which has benefited from a targeted Master Plan to extend and improve upon its use as evidenced by more activity centered around the Landmarked Pier and beyond.
