Large proposed luxury rental community for Harrison, NY

On Wednesday, two family-owned real estate companies presented plans to the Harrison Planning Board to turn a gated hotel site into a mixed-use residential community.

Renaissance Harrison is the proposed transformation of the former 28-acre Renaissance Westchester Hotel site into a vibrant residential community, including publicly accessible retail and cultural venues. Sponsored by longtime friends and partners, Rose Equities and Garden Communities envision a connected and thriving Teardrop neighborhood in Harrison, with Renaissance Harrison as the crown jewel.

Renaissance Harrison will add to the emerging “live working game” environment of the Teardrop, which is surrounded by I-287, the Hutchinson River Parkway and I-684.

“The proposed 28-acre community will be unlike any other development in Westchester. It will meet 21st century standards for walking and cycling, sustainability and respect for the property’s outstanding natural landscape,” said Leonard Glickman, director of Rose Equities, which is developing the community with Garden Communities, both multigenerational, family. owned real estate companies.

The Harrison Planning Board has voted unanimously to declare its intention to serve as the lead agency for the environmental review of Renaissance Harrison’s site plan application, which is the first step in the project’s impact statement process. environmental, as required by state law.

If approved, Renaissance Harrison will be built in two phases and will consist of two residential quads – the North Quad and the South Quad – two large gathering spaces known as the Commons and the Mansion, and two sets of villas triplex. Neither phase will exceed 380 units, with a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom luxury apartments, many with terraces to enhance indoor and outdoor living, while creating a sense of community . The architectural design will celebrate the classic Tudor and Arts & Crafts structures of Westchester County.

Luxury amenities on offer include indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centers, tennis courts, fire pits, and an outdoor amphitheater.

“Quality of life is our priority, and we accentuate this ideal with large living spaces. We envision amenities that will delight the mind and soothe the soul. Our idea is to provide an unparalleled residential lifestyle that reflects the tastes and expectations of surrounding communities,” said Scott Loventhal of Garden Communities.

With a 70-year history, Garden Communities and Rose Equities expect to own Renaissance Harrison for many generations.

The owner-builders intend to preserve and renovate a 1905 Norman-style mansion on the property (commonly referred to simply as “The Mansion”) which was the former home of architect John Merven Carrere. His firm Carrere and Hastings was one of the leading supporters of fine arts in the country, and his most publicized project was the New York Public Library in Manhattan.

The new community will be designed by nationally and locally renowned companies, including Perkins Eastman, Moore Ruble Yudell, Sasaki and Studio Valerius.

Renaissance Harrison will be a boon to the area’s economy, creating hundreds of permanent and construction jobs, generating approximately $30 million in annual tax revenue for the City of Harrison and Harrison Central School District.

“Renaissance Harrison makes sense for the Teardrop neighborhood. In 2013, the City of Harrison passed an updated master plan that envisioned a mix of new uses in the Teardrop, including multi-family residences,” Glickman said.
