MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. A proposal for an 11-story combination residential-retail space at 130 Mount Vernon Ave. will come before the Planning Board Wednesday night.
The board will also hear a proposal for a combined senior living-college campus facility at 15 S. 5th Avenue.
The Mount Vernon Avenue proposal comes from the MacQuestin Development company. The firm's president, Rella Fogliano, said she wants her company to be the first to develop this type of building along the Mount Vernon Avenue corridor, which she called a gateway to the city.
While it is true there is nothing like it around, I have no qualms about being the first, Fogliano told the Architectural Review Board last month. If you build it, they will come.
The senior living-college campus on S. 5th Avenue was proposed by architect Nima Badaly, who said the top two floors would be for seniors and the first floor for a new Westchester Community College campus, which would relocate from Gramatan Avenue. The proposal also calls for a 23-space parking lot.
The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Memorial Room at City Hall.
There will also be a meeting of the Mount Vernon Ethics Board on Wednesday at 10 a.m. in the City Council Chambers.
