Local officials have approved proposals to construct a 185-unit rental building at 208-216 King Street in Port Chester, a village in Westchester County. Developed by Regency Port Chester JJV LLC, the property is the latest project set to break ground within the Port Chester Opportunity Zone, an area of the village where developers have access to special incentives meant to offset building and investment costs. The council handling the project includes Anthony B. Gioffre III of Cuddy & Feder LLP, and Bonnie VonOhlsen, AICP RLA, of Kimley-Horn Engineering and Landscape Architecture.
Proposals for the project were first reviewed in April 2021 and were approved at a meeting with the Port Chester Planning Commission this month.
Designed by architect Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners, the building will offer a mix of floor plans ranging from studios up to three-bedroom layouts. A total of 19 units will be offered below market-rate as affordable housing units. The most premium units will offer private outdoor space.
