(WHITE PLAINS, NY) Legislator Catherine Parker (D-Rye) announced today that there will be 41 new housing units dedicated to senior citizens built at 150 North Street in Rye.  With many seniors living on fixed incomes, Parker took action to help our aging population remain in the community where many grew up and still have families.

“Helping our senior citizens remain in the communities where they have lived for many years allows them to age comfortably in a setting which they are familiar to,” stated Parker. “As the senior population continues to grow rapidly, we need to do more to make our communities affordable and livable so that families can stay in communities throughout Westchester; this development is a positive step in that direction.”

The development will consist of 41 rental apartments including a superintendents unit.  The apartments will be one and two-bedroom units and approximately 750 and 1000 square feet in size respectively.  The building will be a four story brick faced elevator building with parking on the first level, two levels of residential apartments above the parking, capped with a “penthouse” containing units.  Approximately 40% of the site will be open “green” space.  Sixty-one parking spaces are to be provided.  

Parker continued, “The location of this development is very conducive to a senior lifestyle near mass transit options, several business districts and other recreational amenities that will make seniors continue to help our community thrive.”

All of the units are being constructed in a census block that meets the requirements set forth in Paragraph 7(a) of the Stipulation and Order of Settlement and Dismissal entered into in connection with a lawsuit titled, “U.S. ex rel. Anti-Discrimination Center of Metro New York v. Westchester County.
