MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. Two proposals for new apartment buildings in Mount Vernon will go before the Architectural Review Board on Wednesday night.
A proposal from MacQuestin Development calls for an 11-story mixed-use apartment building at 130 Mount Vernon Ave. The proposal was before the board in August.
MacQuestin Development President Rella Fogliano said she wants her company to be the first to develop this type of building along the Mount Vernon Avenue corridor, adding that this is a gateway area for the city. The building would mix residential and retail space.
While it is true there is nothing like it around, I have no qualms about being the first, Fogliano said before the Architectural Review Board last month. If you build it, they will come.
The second proposal is for a combined senior-living facility and college campus at 15 S. 5th Ave. from architect Nima Badaly. Badaly said the top two floors would be for seniors; the bottom floor would be for a new Westchester Community College campus, which would relocate from its location on Gramatan Avenue. The proposal also calls for a 23-space parking lot adjacent to the facility.
The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Memorial Room at City Hall.
