NEW ROCHELLE | 11 Lawton Street | 605 FT + ? | 48 FLOORS + 23 FLOORS

This project includes two towers, one is a 48-story tower with the sole-purpose of accommodating residential units. In this tower, the units, which there are around 600 of them, will be split between rentals and condominiums, which is a welcoming addition to the project. It will include an illuminated crown up top.

The secondary 23-story tower is going to be used as a hotel, and it will renovate and re-purpose the old National City Bank of New Rochelle building located on the corner of Main and Lawton Streets. During the meeting, it was mentioned that there would be around 190 rooms.

There are about 620 parking spaces included with this project with a very small retail component and a restaurant at the base of the hotel. Both towers seem to have a nice lighting setup proposed, although this can change between now and September, which is when the next PB meeting is. For higher quality renderings, we’ll have to wait and see, but until then, the screenshots provide you with a decent visual.

This has been the only project proposed for the DO-1 zoning so far. Unsure if we’ll see anything else, but I’m completely fine with this being the cherry on top of the new downtown. The impact this development will have on our skyline is going to be unbelievable.

The big tower’s base could use tinkering but I can dig it. Even the hotel looks pretty cool. Thanks for the scoop!

Amazing! Is this RXR?

I’m not sure actually. I didn’t hear anyone mention the developer’s name during the presentation. I don’t think it is RXR though because their usual representatives weren’t presenting.

Also I agree with the base of the tower. Very bland and uninspired. It isn’t a very big base either, you’d think the project would have a larger footprint but it only takes up the bare minimum. I’ll make a map of the parcels later.

I am, uh, intimately familiar with a person who may be working on this project. I’ll ask if they know anything…

Take it with a grain of salt, but I know that this architect is also working with Street-Works Development on Hamilton Green in White Plains and there may be a connection there…

I now agree that the base needs tinkering. It’s very unimpressive and lacks a lot.
