The Westchester County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) approved at its July 11 board meeting a resolution to assign the rights to financial incentives granted to Saber Chauncey WP, LLC for a $136.2 million mixed-use residential development in downtown White Plains to TB White Plains Apartments LLC, a subsidiary of Toll Bros. Inc. which is acquiring the property from Saber Chauncey. The site was purchased for $32 Millon.
In October 2018, the IDA approved $3,348,609 in sales tax and mortgage recording tax exemptions for The Collection, a mixed-use project consisting of 276 residential units in two buildings on Westchester Avenue and Franklin Avenue.
Located across from The Westchester mall, the project includes 24,526 square feet of retail space and 716 parking spaces of which 275 will be for municipal parking. Seventeen of the residential units will be affordable. The project is expected to create 250 construction jobs and 91 permanent jobs.

We believe working in cooperation with the WIDA, the City and the construction industry participants, this project is sure to be a success.”
