Rivertowns Square developers plan smaller $120M project in White Plains

Westfair Communications, Ryan Deffenbaugh, May 11, 2017


A $120 million development on the Westchester Avenue corridor in White Plains would add retail and luxury apartments to a mostly vacant portion of the city’s eastern gateway. The project, first reviewed by the White Plains Common Council in 2015, has been renewed in a scaled-down form by development partners in Saber White Plains LLC, an affiliate of Armonk-based Saber Real Estate Advisors LLC, and Chauncey White Plains LLC, an affiliate of Chauncey Station Partners.


The White Plains development, called The Collection, would follow a similar mixed-use concept on a smaller scale. As designed by the Virginia architecture firm Antunovich Associates, the project would bring about 25,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space to Westchester Avenue in the area between the White Plains Chrysler Jeep Dodge and the Westchester Burger Company buildings and opposite The Westchester mall. It would add 276 apartments to the city’s rental housing inventory, 28 of which would be designated as affordable. The complex would include 25 studio, 161 one-bedroom and 91 two-bedroom units.

On the back end of the property at Franklin Avenue, an 11-story residential building would feature 186 units. The other 90 apartments would be in three levels above the retail and restaurant portion of the development. The project would also add 745 on-site parking spaces, including a parking garage on the first four stories of the apartment building.
