Construction has commenced on a 27-story Westchester Place luxury residential tower in New Rochelle, New York. Recently, the groundbreaking for the final piece of the planned three-building development took place at 33 Westchester Place.

The Westchester Place tower will be developed through a partnership between Allstate Ventures and the city. Therefore the developer hosted the groundbreaking event with Mayor Noam Bramson present, as well as other city officials. Architects Chris Fogarty and John Zimmer, from Fogarty Finger, were also present along with representatives from the project’s lender.

Design plans for the Westchester Place tower

According to Mayor Noam Bramson, the tower will be of high-quality designs which will raise the bar for the city. He said  Fogarty Finger’s designs would make the 315-apartment tower into one of the most aesthetically striking buildings in Westchester County. The new tower’s exterior will have a solid wall design, along with a white terra cotta façade and bronze features. Additionally, it also offers energy-saving features over a glass facade.

Rachel Spater, Allstate Ventures’ Project Manager said the Westchester Place tower was designed in the post-pandemic era. Therefore, he said the work-from-home or hybrid lifestyle was taken into consideration during the project’s design phase. Spater mentioned that the design team included a 2,000-square-foot co-working area, along with six private work booths. Additionally, a conference room will be provided for meetings, including flexible space in several residences for home office use.

The residential units at Westchester Place will be spread between the fourth and 26th floors of the building. Future residents will have access to a mix of 110 studios, 161 one-bedrooms and 44 two-bedrooms. However, some of the studios will have separate alcoves giving them the feel of a one-bedroom. In addition, valet parking services will also be offered on the property.

While the ground floor will feature glazed storefronts and a perforated bronze screen to enliven pedestrian activities. The developer expects to complete construction on the tower by the end of 2024.
