TUCKAHOE, N.Y. – After more than a year of waiting, ground has officially been broken on the 108-unit luxury rental building on Main Street in Tuckahoe.
The development, which has been in the works for nearly a decade, will feature 61 one-bedroom and 47 two-bedroom units on Main Street, with more than 3,000-square-feet of commercial space.
In addition to the residential and commercial space, there will be a fitness center, club room, outdoor terrace and kitchen for private entertaining and a secure parking garage.
The project is being developed by Glenco Residential in partnership with Roseland, Mirado Properties and Sharp Management. New Jersey-based architecture firm Minno and Wasko designed it.
Plans for the site started in 2005 but had to be shelved due to the falling economy. It was brought back to the table and revised in 2010 before being approved by the necessary village parties last year.
As part of the project, officials at Glenco Residential will be paying for and overseeing the improvement of Main Street Park, situated directly across from the project. The company will add new landscaping, decorative fencing and lights, as well as improvements to the recreational facilities.
Glen Vetromile, Glenco Residential’s development partner, said the new community would appeal to couples, singles and people in transition.
“There have been no new housing offerings of this type in this area in nearly two decades,” he said when announcing the project. “The demand for a quality residential offering with a high amenity package is very strong. Not everyone needs or wants a large home and many people want the carefree lifestyle that apartment living offers.”
The building is nearby various Tuckahoe restaurants and shops, and will be within walking distance of the Metro-North train station.
“Tuckahoe has experienced quality revitalization over the past decade and this project is further testimony to the vibrant renaissance taking place in our community,” Tuckahoe Mayor Steve Ecklond said. “This project will become the new gateway to our Main Street. We look forward to welcoming its residents to their new home.”
