New Rochelle Model Develpment Block
The intricate beauty of the ornamental terracotta parapet and spandrels of 573-9 Main Street, a participating building in the New Rochelle Model Block, was brought out by careful steam cleaning and repointing.
The restoration included steam cleaning, repointing and new windows, which brought out the building’s highly ornamental terracotta parapet and spandrels. The owner intends to replace signage and storefront awnings as part of a related program and to renovate the long vacant commercial upper floor.
A matching grant was provided by the New Rochelle BID and a low interest loan by the CPC. The Project was funded by the New York State Empire Development Corporation Main Streets Program and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey.
