Developers break ground on project to transform area near White Plains train station

Developers broke ground Wednesday on a project that will transform the area near the White Plains train station.
The new two-tower high-rise contains 500 luxury apartments and retail space. It is expected to open by mid-2024 at 25 North Lexington Ave.
Amenities include a fitness center, study rooms and a pet spa - plus plenty of outdoor space.
The project's location in downtown White Plains and proximity to public transportation continues to make the city one of the most commuter-friendly suburbs in Westchester.
"We worked very hard in White Plains to make this a great place to live for the people that are here but also to make it an attractive place for people who are looking for a place to locate both businesses and individuals," says White Plains Mayor Tom Roach.
The building includes 15 affordable housing units. Developers are paying the city $4 million, which will go into its Affordable Housing Assistance Fund, to create other future housing assistance programs and more affordable units.
