Designed to appeal to “millennial” and “empty-nesters,” this six-story, 60-unit multi-family residential building is one of the first buildings designed using the new form-based zoning adopted in New Rochelle. The economical, wood-frame modular construction system helps contain construction cost. A rain screen cladding system gives the building a contemporary appearance. Subtle façade details provide richness and texture. The building incorporates studios, one-bedroom, and some two-bedroom apartments, and includes a parking garage on the ground level along with retail space. The project incorporates a community art benefit space at the first floor, which is intended to contribute meaningfully to the formation of an “arts district” in the downtown.
