Former Pavilion site dormant; The Mitchell ready to rise in White Plains

Westfair Communications, Peter Katz, February 3, 2020


It will be at least another year before construction begins in earnest on the mixed-use project planned by Lennar Multifamily Communities for the site of the former Pavilion Mall in White Plains, Greg Belew, LMC’s divisional president for the New York tristate area, told the Business Journal.


The old mall was torn down and the 60 S. Broadway site cleared. “We’ve had some activity in terms of doing some art installations in partnership with ArtsWestchester where we’ve had some local artists doing murals on the construction fence surrounding the site,” Belew said.


LMC had told Westchester County’s Industrial Development Agency it anticipated construction on the first phase of the two-phase project to begin in June 2020 with occupancy expected around September 2022. Phase two was expected to begin at that time with occupancy expected by September 2024. Two 28-story towers have been planned with a total of 814 apartments. There would be 28,000 square feet of retail and dining along with 932 parking spaces. The cost of each phase of the project has been estimated at $250 million.


“We are still very bullish on White Plains,” Belew said. “We think it’s a great market and will continue to be so.”
