YONKERS, N.Y. -- A city of Yonkers brokers tour highlighting the city's transit-oriented development projects was conducted in the downtown area recently.
The tour included the city's Metro-North train stations and residential projects in the downtown area that are under construction.
More than 30 commercial and residential brokers took the June 16 tour that the city's Department of Planning & Development led.
Stops included River Tides at Greystone, Hudson Park Club and UNO Micro Unit Apartments.
River Tides is a 330-unit, 10-story luxury rental complex overlooking the Hudson River. The project, which is being developed by Ginsburg Development Cos., will have a direct walkway to the Greystone Metro-North station.
Hudson Park Club is the latest addition to Hudson Park luxury rental complex. The 230,000-square-foot building features 213 studio and one- and two-bedroom apartments. Located just blocks from the Yonkers Metro-North train station, Hudson Park Club is being developed by Collins Enterprises.
UNO Micro Unit Apartments is a $15 million development project transforming Building 2 at iPark into 100 micro-unit apartments. Developed by National Resources, the project is a short walk to the Yonkers Metro-North train station.
Executives from Ginsburg Development, Collins Enterprises and National Resources made presentations at each of the projects on the tour.
A cocktail reception for the brokers was hosted by Mayor Mike Spano afterward at Boyce Thompson Center. The mixed-use center with office/medical space, retail stores, banking and restaurants is being developed by Simone Development Cos.
“Transit-oriented development is a fast-growing trend in urban planning that is creating vibrant, livable and sustainable communities. Yonkers is on the cutting edge of this exciting new trend," Spano said at the reception.
