PROJECT: Edge-on-Hudson, a major mixed-use development, aims to build a new waterfront community, comprising 1,177 residential units, a 140-room boutique hotel, 135,000 square feet of retail space, 35,000 feet squares of office space and parks. Toll Brothers is in charge of building the first 15-acre phase of the 70-acre development.
SITE: The former General Motors assembly plant site at 199 Beekman Ave., Sleepy Hollow. The site is located along the Metro-North Railroad Hudson line, between Tarrytown and Philipse Manor stations.
RECENT NEWS: Leading Edge-on-Hudson developers – SunCal in California and Diversified Realty Advisors in New Jersey – recently retained landscape architects Nelson Byrd Woltz to design the parks and walkways in Edge-on-Hudson, including including a public waterfront promenade that will link the Westchester RiverWalk to the south of the property to the historic lighthouse and Kingsland Point Park to the north.
Nelson Byrd Woltz is the lead designer of the Plaza and Gardens of Hudson Yards, a $ 25 billion mixed-use development in Manhattan.
“We’re committed to building a world-class community in Edge-on-Hudson, and that requires top talent,” David Soyka, senior vice president of SunCal, said of the landscape architecture firm.
In addition to Hudson Yards, Nelson Byrd Woltz is involved in projects such as the Rothko Chapel in Houston and the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
FOLLOWING: The first set of luxury townhouses, known as the Toll Brothers Brownstones Collection, are currently under construction. Once they are completed, potential buyers can take a tour of the model units. Meanwhile, visitors can get a feel for the project through a 360-degree virtual reality tour available at an on-site sales gallery. In addition to 72 luxury townhouses, 46 condominiums and 188 rental apartments will be built in the first phase.
PRICE POINTS: Townhouses, ranging from 2,400 square feet to over 3,000 square feet, will cost around $ 1.2 million and more, according to Toll Brothers.
