Project Type: Living Location: New Rochelle, NY Client: Monroe College Completion:2021 (In Construction)
Designed to appeal to millenial’s and empty-nesters, this six-story, 60-unit multi-family residential building is one of the first buildings designed using the new form-based zoning adopted in New Rochelle. The economical, wood-frame modular construction system helps contain construction cost to the $200/ square foot range. A fiber-cement rain screen cladding system gives the building a contemporary appearance. Subtle facade details provide richness and texture. The building incorporates studios, one-bedroom, and some two-bedroom apartments, and includes an automated parking system as well as retail space. The project incorporates a community art benefit space at the first floor, which is intended to contribute meaningfully to the formation of an ’arts district’ in the downtown.
