The second tower of the project which will be another 16 story tower with 273 residences will break ground early in 2019.
The 288 units in today’s building open have 20% set aside for affordable housing. This was originally proposed by the Joseph Delfino Administration Commissioner of Planning Susan Habel, who sought a mixed income building with a significant 20% pegged at affordable rates. Today that dream became bricks and mortar and success. That project became stalled when the 2008 recession dried up financing availability. Now ten years later it’s real.
Brian Barry, Senior Vice President of LCOR, the developer, said in a statement:
“We are very pleased at the tremendous leasing activity we have experienced over the past several (6) months. Continuum offers an unbeatable combination of luxury residences, full array of top quality amenities and a convenient location that’s only steps from the Metro-North train station. Downtown Whie Plains is undergoing an extraordinary renaissance and we’re proud to be a part of it.”
