First, the irresponsible affordable housing project championed by the New Castle Democratic Committee: a 4-story, 28-unit apartment building that will be built from lot-line to lot-line on a 1/3-acre industrially zoned lot. The site is sandwiched between the Metro-North railroad tracks, an exit ramp from the Saw Mill River Parkway, and the Quaker Road bridge overpass. Their common space is a small patio overlooking the railroad tracks. Not a blade of grass. This is what happens when a politically connected developer and it’s politically connected attorney teamed up with the prior politically oriented Town Board.
Working with Summit Greenfield, the iconic Cupola building at Chappaqua Crossing will be adaptively reused for 28 units of affordable housing, 10 work force, 25 market rate units. These units will exemplify how new and affordable housing options should be integrated. When completed, the Cupola Building will offer affordable, market rate and workforce housing options in a beautiful, vibrant location. Take a tour (click below image):
