MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- A former train station in Mount Vernon is being torn down and, its owner hopes, eventually replaced with apartments, according to a report by lohud.com.

The Italianate-style building, at 222 East Third St., was once the fanciest of five stations run in the city by New York, Westchester and Boston Railway, lohud.com reported.

According to the lohud.com article, the property’s managers, Mastermind, want to build 200-300 units once the city re-zones the commercial-industrial area to allow housing projects.

Mayor Richard Thomas told lohud.com that the city needs to look to a comprehensive plan rather than piecemeal re-zoning.

The building was being eyed in the mid-1980s for a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, but damage to its façade had lowered its chances of making it on the list, according to lohud.com.
