Approvals Attained for Mixed-Income Housing Redevelopment Plan in Port Chester

Z&S and a design team consisting of JMC, Inc. and GF55 Architects, secured approvals from the Village of Port Chester Planning Commission in connection with a proposal to redevelop a former church property on Willet Avenue with a 6-story, 71-unit residential building. The new transit-oriented development will incorporate the bell tower and façade of the existing church, as well as complimenting brick and other architectural elements from portions of the church that will be removed for the project. Solar panels are also proposed for the roof.

David Cooper and Brian Sinsabaugh have served as the project team’s attorneys over the last year. The review process culminated in the Planning Commission adopting a SEQRA negative declaration, as well as issuing site plan approval at its September meeting. Previously, Z&S Partner Jody Cross was involved with rezoning the project site, convincing the Village to include it within a higher-density district during the Village’s adoption of a new form based code.
