NYC developer proposes 18 apartments, restaurant to White Plains’ East Post Road

Westfair Communications, Ryan Deffenbaugh, November 1, 2018

"A stretch of storefronts along East Post Road in White Plains could soon be updated and built upon to create 18 apartments and restaurant space in the city’s downtown.

The New York City development company that owns the building at 199-201 E. Post Road seeks a site plan amendment that would allow it to add three stories to the one-story building, with six apartments on each floor. The roughly 24,000-square-foot addition would bring apartments to a strip of the downtown that is mostly single-level commercial buildings.

The quarter-acre lot has a one-story building that was formerly home to the Thirsty Turtle restaurant and bar. The current owner, an affiliated company of New York City development group Sackman Enterprises Inc., bought the property for $800,000 in 2017.

...

The apartments could arrive to an area of the city becoming increasingly residential. The lot is just a few hundred feet from the former Westchester Pavilion mall site, where Lennar Multifamily Communities has a proposal under city review that would build two, 24-story residential towers with 707 rental apartments on the vacant lot. It’s also not far from another Lennar project, which already has city approval, which would add 434 apartments to the corner of East Post Road and Mamaroneck Avenue."
