Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced the start of construction on 62 Main, a $53 million affordable housing development in the village of Tarrytown in Westchester County.
The development involves the adaptive reuse of the historic YMCA facility and the new construction of an additional building to create 109 affordable and highly energy-efficient homes for households over the age of 55.
62 Main will be constructed on a one-acre parcel in the village with frontage on both Main Street and Windle Park. The four-story Main Street building, originally constructed in 1911, will be transformed into modern apartments with several common areas. Two additional YMCA buildings in the rear of the property will be demolished and replaced with a newly constructed four-story building. The historic Main Street façade will remain intact. The developer is Wilder Balter Partners.
All apartments will be affordable to households with incomes ranging from 30 to 70 percent or less of the Area Median Income.
Building amenities will include a community room with kitchen, fitness center, central laundry room, green roof courtyard, an onsite management office and one superintendent unit. The development will include two levels of underground parking for residents and a ground-level municipal parking garage.
The development’s location is within walking distance to the village’s many shops, restaurants, churches, schools and other services. The building is close to the Metro North Train Station and bus stops for several Westchester County Bee-Line routes.
62 Main is designed to meet LEED Homes for Gold certification. Energy-efficiency measures will include geothermal heating and cooling systems, low-flow plumbing fixtures, Energy Star lighting and appliances, and rooftop solar panels that will generate power to supplement the building’s electrical supply.
