Stamford firm proposes to replace downtown White Plains retail building with apartments
Westchester & Fairfield County Business Journals, Peter Katz, September 14, 2021
A 134-unit six-story apartment building is being proposed to be built at 51 S. Broadway in White Plains. It would replace the one-story retail structure dating from about 1957 that stands on the 1-acre site.
Parking for the apartments would be in a two-level underground garage. As the Business Journal reported on Sept. 13 would be happening, the city’s Common Council began the review process for the proposal by referring the site plan and related documents to various boards and commissions for review. Mayor Tom Roach emphasized that the council was not at that time passing judgment on the proposal itself.
The developer is RMS Cos., which is headquartered in Stamford. The current owner of the site at 51 S. Broadway is Post-Broadway Associates LLC, c/o A&R Minskoff.
The approximately 30,000-square-foot building has been home to a variety of retailers in the past. One of the last major tenants was the White Plains outlet of Frozen Ropes, a chain of baseball and softball training centers. The space has remained vacant since Frozen Ropes moved out several years ago.
