NEW ROCHELLE, NY | RDRXR General Development

This is the general thread for New Rochelle, NY RDRXR development.

Source Article: Talk of the Sound

SYNOPSIS:
Quote:
NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- New Rochelle City Council has unanimously approved a new zoning plan that paves the way for the most significant economic rebirth in the City’s historic downtown. The adoption of the Downtown Overlay Zone and Community Benefits Policy concludes an intensive year-long research, planning and community outreach process, led by the City of New Rochelle and its designated Master Developer for Downtown, RDRXR.

The new zoning provides a clear and transparent roadmap for investment to developers and property owners, while also setting design standards and community benefit requirements intended to create a thriving, attractive, and sustainable city center. A new Fair Share Mitigation Fund will help ensure that development covers any public costs associated with growth and that taxpayers receive a net benefit. The new plan creates the possibility for a New Rochelle brimming with vibrant, yet intelligently designed new development that would impact the City throughout the 21st Century, as it permits construction of up to 990,000 square feet of new retail space, 1,805,000 square feet of new non-medical office space, 420,000 square feet of medical office space and 5,500 apartments, approximately 10% of which will be affordable housing.

“This innovative development framework positions our City for success, especially combined with New Rochelle’s core assets - unrivaled location and transit connections, a talented and diverse population, and great schools, libraries and neighborhoods. There is no community in New York that offers a better opportunity today or a bigger upside tomorrow,” said Mayor Noam Bramson.

New Rochelle’s downtown plan reflects extensive public input, gleaned through a Crowdsourced Placemaking program with over a thousand members participating as well as multiple community meetings and two public hearings. More than one hundred different ideas were generated for New Rochelle’s downtown, many of which were included in the Recommended Action Plan (“RAP”).

Following the approval of the RAP, the City and RDRXR completed the requirements of the State Environmental Quality Review Act (“SEQRA”), thoroughly analyzing the impacts of the redevelopment plan and providing measures to mitigate those impacts. The results of the SEQRA review are detailed in the Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement and Findings Statement. The completion of the SEQRA process will reduce financial and procedural impediments to future investment.

“Today is a great day for the City of New Rochelle and we are thrilled to be a part of it,” said RXR Realty CEO Scott Rechler. “The rezoning passed by the City Council will not only bring new employment opportunities and services to the city’s residents, but will also attract significant new private investment to the city and generate tens of millions of dollars in incremental tax revenue to allow the city to continue to prosper in the years to come. We thank both New Rochelle’s City officials and the many citizens who participated in this process over the last year, making this a truly collaborative effort that will build on and enhance all that is special about this unique Westchester community and turn New Rochelle’s downtown into a model for 21st Century suburban downtowns across the country.”

Donald Monti, President and CEO, Renaissance Downtowns, said, "The City of New Rochelle should be commended on finalizing its bold initiative to attract private investment into its Downtown. The exclamation point on their efforts is the 7-0 Bipartisan vote! This is a model of how a true Public / Private Partnership should work; This is how economic development happens; This is the Future! Congratulations to the entire city, we can’t wait to get the first building in the ground."

“New Rochelle has come together in support of the revitalization of our downtown,” said Development Commissioner Luiz C. Aragon “We have created the right environment for the ideal work, live and play landscape. Come to New Rochelle, we’re open for business.”

Gregory A. Merchant, President and CEO of Investment Design Properties, Ltd. and RDRXR Consultant stated, “The revitalization of downtown New Rochelle has been coming for thirty years. It is now finally our time to see unprecedented growth in the downtown which will serve as the economic engine for the City of New Rochelle for many years to come.”

The Downtown Development Project- including the Recommended Action Plan, all of the SEQRA documents, the new Downtown Overlay Zone, and Community Benefits Policy - can be viewed on the City website at http://www.newrochelleny.com/RDRXR

Developers of an apartment building in downtown New Rochelle will create a space that could reclaim the street’s former cultural prominence and preserve a bit of history that echoes an affluent bygone era.

The city’s master developer, RDRXR, submitted plans on April 11 for a $120 million, 28-story apartment tower on Main Street on a site that companies have tried and failed to develop.

The apartment project is significant because it will be the first in the city’s ambitious plan to rebuild downtown using new zoning tools.

“And it’s important because it shows a commitment from a major developer,” said Luis Aragon, New Rochelle commissioner of development.

If all goes according to design, the city Planning Board will soon vote on the project, ground will be broken by Nov. 15 and the building will open in 2018.

The building will include retail space on the ground floor, a parking garage and a “black box” theater.

The theater is a crucial part of the city’s plan to transform Main Street into a cultural district. To understand the dynamics of the project, first look at what’s there now.

RDRXR will build the tower at 587–599 Main St. The site includes two buildings: the old Loew’s Theatre, a massive structure that extends all the way back to Huguenot Street, and a narrow row of storefronts and the theater entrance.

The old theater is an eyesore and four storefronts are vacant. But if you look more closely you will see a telling detail. The façade behind the theater marquee features terracotta architectural embellishments. Look around and you will notice more terracotta features on several nearby buildings.

The architectural flourishes had been concealed by paint and faux facades for many years. In 2012, the Downtown Business Improvement District won state grants to uncover them. About $100,000 was spent restoring the Loew’s façade, according to Ralph DiBart, the district’s executive director.

He said the restorations have played a role in the city’s efforts to revitalize downtown. They demonstrate to developers that these are streets that people care about and that this is a good place in which to invest.

The architectural details also hint at a grander time and place.

Loew’s was built in 1926. It was designed by Herbert J. Krapp, one of the leading theater architects during the era of movie palaces. It was built in an elaborate Spanish-Mediterranean style, with a clay tile roof, baroque parapet and gorgeous mosaics, according to New Rochelle City Historian Barbara Davis.

Krapp also designed the elegant Proctor’s RKO Theater that opened across the street in 1927. Both theaters could seat about 2,500 people, and they staged vaudeville shows and presented the most popular movies of the day. George and Gracie Burns, Sophie Tucker, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball and other celebrities performed on Main Street.

The movie palaces also reflected the city’s wealth. New Rochelle had the third highest per capita income in the nation by the 1930s, Davis said, and the highest in New York state. Posh department stores, park-like neighborhoods and quick access to Manhattan by train gave the city a reputation as a premium bedroom community.

The city’s economic fortunes declined over the years. By the 1960s, Interstate 95 and suburban malls had drained customers out of downtown. Television put a dent in movie attendance and the convenience of buying videotaped movies at stores divided audiences even more. The large auditoriums were subdivided into multiplexes. In 1980, Loew’s closed.

Years ago, the theater was turned into a nightclub called the Palladium. The walls were painted black and unique architectural elements were stripped out, according to RDRXR spokesman Seth Pinsky.

The club became the site of drug activity and unruly conduct. Or as Albert Tarantino, a city councilman and co-owner of Talner Fine Jewelry a block away from the theater, recalled, “It created late night and early morning issues for our police department.”

A city task force was formed to remind the club owner to comply with the laws. Agents enforced liquor laws. Patrons filed lawsuits. The club closed in 2003.

Around 2006, a White Plains developer proposed a 150-unit apartment building, but the Great Recession stopped that project.

As the economy began to improve, Tarantino said, the city council began looking for ways to reverse falling revenue and “turn negatives into positives.”

Two years ago the city began focusing a plan for more housing, shops, restaurants, offices, and hotels, with easy access to the New Rochelle Transportation Center, built around safer streets and abundant green space. It hired RDRXR at New Rochelle LLC – a joint venture of two large real estate development firms based on Long Island, Renaissance Downtowns and RXR Realty LLC – as the master developer.

The firm developed ideas and strategies for achieving the city’s goals. It also completed a comprehensive state environmental quality review for the entire downtown development area. Now any developer can skip that expensive, time-consuming step and take a proposal directly to the city, cutting the approval process by a year, Tarantino said.

“It saves time and money, the two most important things to developers,” he said.

The downtown plan also offers incentives to invest there.

Developers can build more floor space than the basic zoning allows, gaining up to 20 percent more height, by preserving historic sites, creating cultural spaces or providing other community benefits.

The area around the Loew’s has been designated a cultural district.

“We’re talking about art galleries and maker spaces and performance studios and housing for artists,” Aragon said.

That’s why RDRXR is building a 10,000-square-foot black box theater, a versatile space that can be used for many types of events, on the second floor of its building. Under the existing zoning, 24 floors may be built. By building a performance space and preserving the façade and its terracotta details, four more floors may be built.

As an official in the mayoral administration of Michael Bloomberg in New York, Pinsky learned that the key to making such incentives work is for the city to squeeze as much as possible out of the developer while giving the developer enough incremental value to make the project work.

if they can acquire the site of the downtown library, RXR will build a landmark 48-story tower which I hope will surpass the Westchester Ritz Carlton Condo towers in White Plains.

A developer is eyeing 1 Library Plaza as the possible anchor for a revitalized downtown. But the seven library trustees will ultimately decide what happens to the site.

Under RDRXR’s plan, which was approved in December, a developer could build up to 48 stories on that property. And the boundaries of a potential arts and cultural district were drawn around the library in the latest draft.
The site is currently home to the city's public library and newly renamed Ruby Dee Park, which library patron Shelley Berlincourt said is being overlooked.

I honestly hope they get the approval to do so.. the library is an eyesore. It was built in the 80s, I believe, could be wrong.. but it looks so outdated and drab, they don't even bother to make an effort to spruce the place up. While it may be an inconvenience to many, I'm sure a new library would be very beneficial.

Construction to Begin in New Rochelle on $120 Million Apartment Building
Project will serve as cornerstone for a 10-year plan to add more housing and businesses downtown

Real-estate development firm RXR Realty is set to begin construction Wednesday in New Rochelle on a $120 million apartment building that will serve as a cornerstone for a 10-year plan to add more housing and businesses downtown.

The city’s $4 billion plan will include 12 million square feet for new apartments, commercial-office space and arts and cultural institutions.

New Rochelle, part of Westchester County, saw many residents and businesses leave the downtown during the 1970s and 1980s. Developers returned in the late 1990s and early 2000s and built some 1,500 units of housing along with a new entertainment center and a park, said Mayor Noam Bramson.

“That initial wave did not achieve the critical mass that ignites a downtown area as a whole,” Mr. Bramson said. “This next effort, which is more ambitious in its scale and procedural components, is intended to achieve that broader transformation.”



New Rochelle plans for 6,370 new housing units to be built downtown over the next decade. About 8,700 people live in downtown New Rochelle as of the 2010 Census.

The plan will add 1,200 hotel rooms and 2.4 million square feet of commercial office space.

New Rochelle’s plan to build up its downtown fits a pattern seen throughout the tri-state area where developers have focused in recent years on building apartment buildings in suburbs and smaller cities close to mass transit that can take people into Midtown Manhattan, said Chris Jones, chief planner for the Regional Plan Association, an urban research and advocacy group.

“That kind of came to a halt when the housing bubble hit in 2008,” Mr. Jones said. “They are starting to come back online now.”

New Rochelle, with a population of about 79,800, picked RXR and real-estate firm Renaissance Downtowns as lead developers for the initiative. Scott Rechler, chief executive of RXR, said many young professionals and empty nesters can’t afford to live in Manhattan, but still want to live in an walkable urban area close to New York.

“They are all looking for this type of downtown lifestyle but perhaps without being in a city like New York City,” Mr. Rechler said.

Demolition has started on the 587 Main St. project. This is where the tower will stand when completed.

The above photo is connected to this article and rendering. Cappelli's old LeCount Square proposal was incredibly ambitious. I wish they were able to get it off the ground as New Rochelle would have benefited greatly from it.

----------
Westfair Online - "Cappelli Organization back to work in New Rochelle" (link)


Rendering of The Cappelli Organization’s planned apartment and retail development in downtown New Rochelle.

Quote:
Nearly a decade after Westchester developer Louis R. Cappelli’s grand plan for LeCount Square collapsed, his company has come back to downtown New Rochelle with a vastly scaled-down proposal.

The New Rochelle Planning Board on April 25 approved a new site plan by The Cappelli Organization for 251 North Ave., an apartment and retail development.

“The market has picked up,” Bruce Berg, CEO of The Cappelli Organization in White Plains, said in a telephone interview, “and we felt it was time to take the next step.”

Ten years ago, Cappelli’s New Rochelle Revitalization LLC was fine-tuning plans for LeCount Square, a $450 million, 1.15 million-square-foot mixed-use development that as proposed would have included 154,000 square feet of retail space, 330,000 square feet of office space, 150 hotel rooms and 243 residential units. New Rochelle’s former development commissioner in 2008 called the project “the keystone in the entire downtown.”

LeCount Square was to be built across the street from New Roc City and cattycorner to Trump Plaza New Rochelle — both built by Cappelli and often credited as pioneer developments that spurred a downtown revival in the city on Long Island Sound.

The 3-acre property between North Avenue, LeCount Place, Huguenot Street and Anderson Street and includes a U.S. Post Office that was going to be razed.

The financial crisis of 2007 — 2008 and the housing market bust, which brought a halt to lender financing and demand for condominiums in Westchester County and across the country, killed LeCount Square.

Now The Cappelli Organization, formerly known as Cappelli Enterprises, controls only the two-story Standard Star building between the post office and a building occupied by a Planned Parenthood center at 247-249 North Ave.

Standard Star was built in 1924 in a modified Italian Renaissance style, according to a state historic resource inventory form. The newspaper building was altered several times and an addition was built at the rear in 1978 for a restaurant and bar. In 2001, the addition was converted to a nightclub.

The current development site is a sliver of the original property. It consists of about one-fourth of an acre, with only 21 feet of frontage on North Street and widening to 78 feet near LeCount Place.

Cappelli plans to build a 14-story building with 112 dwellings and 4,000 square feet of ground level retail space. It will have 13 studio apartments, 92 one-bedroom units and seven two-bedroom units. Parking will be provided at the New Roc City garage.

Berg would not disclose the cost of the project.

“It’s geared to a younger demographic,” he said, “that commutes and doesn’t necessarily need a car.”

The building will include what has become the standard amenities for millennials: a rooftop deck, a fire pit, gym, small business center and bike storage.

Demolition has already begun on the Standard Star building, but only on a portion at the back. The rest of the building will become part of the new tower.

The developer also has proposed installing murals or art work on the building.

New Rochelle Development Commissioner Luiz Aragon commended Cappelli to the planning board for embracing the concept of a downtown arts district and for plans to restore the Standard Star façade.

One resident who spoke at the planning board hearing critiqued the design as “soulless” and rebuked city officials for not requiring more green space, as depicted in a downtown master plan.

The master plan is a general concept, Aragon replied, and there is essentially no private open space left downtown.

But there are green touches in the Cappelli project, architect Mark Schulman, co-founder of Design Development Architects in White Plains, the project’s architectural design firm, told the board. In addition to a green space on the roof, there will be an interior patio and a “live wall system” with plants, he said.

As to the rest of the original LeCount Square site, the Cappelli Organization has no plans.

“We don’t own any of it,” Berg said.

Back in January the city issued a RFP for the No 1 Firehouse. A 28 story tower will be built.

New Rochelle seeks proposals for coveted downtown fire station parcel



Quote:
[...]
New Rochelle officials are looking for a way to put the site to better use. It has issued a request for proposals for a 28-story mixed-use building on the city-owned parcel.

This is the tricky part. The station at 45 Harrison St. must be demolished. But whoever wins development rights must retain and improve the firefighting services, either on site or elsewhere. At no time, can the fire service be interrupted.

The RFP had a March 10th deadline, and lohud reported that "about 30 people interested in development attended a voluntary site visit on Jan. 25". The same article mentions that the city is open to de-mapping Cedar Street, which runs behind the station, to allow for more sq. footage - but I think they'd need state approval to do that. Not sure what the status is on the bid, as they haven't mentioned it since they announced it.

The tricky part actually seems to be more of a possible major dilemma.

Here's a new photo showing the progress they made since starting demolition. I don't think they have much left to do at this point. Not sure when actual construction work will begin, but I'll keep the thread updated.

Lots of dump trucks were loaded with debris from the site and went on their way. Site cleanup is definitely getting done. It's only a matter of time before we see proper construction.
