TARRYTOWN, N.Y. Hudson Harbor developers hope to have at least one home in their next phase of development done by October.
Developers plan to build 27 two-story town homes situated in a square around a small park in the center of the entire Hudson Harbor development. The project has been nicknamed the carriage houses.
They're sort of taking architectural themes from some of the Hudson Valley's great estates such as Sunnyside where there are gatehouses or carriage houses, Developer Joseph Cotter said.
National RE/sources is redeveloping several areas around the Hudson River waterfront in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow where industrial factories used to be in operation. The Hudson Harbor project includes several different developments of housing, some restaurants and the completion of the RiverWalk park going from Pierson Park in Tarrytown to Ichabod's Landing in Sleepy Hollow.
Developers are currently constructing one of two condominium buildings near the river. Construction on at least one carriage house is slated to begin quickly, Cotter said, because the developers are working with Westchester magazine to feature the home in one of their issues.
The whole idea is to create a replica of some of these homes or things that we see that are quite attractive to the Hudson Valley, Cotter said.
The carriage houses will feature several different exterior designs. Cotter noted the houses will be between two and three thousand square feet, 30 feet wide and feature authentic materials. About six or seven will feature two garages, with the rest having one garage.
Cotter noted developers were trying to appeal to people who would take advantage of the many mass-transit options close to the development, such as the Metro North station.
The development features a 0.992-acre park designed as a formal English garden, Cotter said.
The idea is to create a separate and distinct community here, Cotter said.
