TARRYTOWN, N.Y. Tarrytown trustees and Planning Board members voted unanimously to approve a taller building height for a Phase 2 building in the Hudson Harbor real estate development.
You're going to have to live with this, Mayor Drew Fixell said.
The action amends the findings statement for the development to 57.5 feet. Village officials had previously approved a height of 52 inches, with an extra two inches for a parapet wall so that the building's air conditioning unit could be concealed.
Builders on the project had previously built the structure about 6.8 feet above the original approved height because architects working on the plans did not realize the height limitations, according to Developer Joseph Cotter. Cotter told village officials the builders had managed to cut down the excess height by four feet.
Trustees and Planning Board officials questioned Cotter about the excess height and how the building's roof had been constructed before deciding that they would allow the increase in height. Officials added a stipulation that nothing could extend beyond the set 57.5 feet.
Village Administrator Michael Blau said the ruling would only apply to the first building in the Phase 2 construction, not the second building that is planned. Blau said the village would address the issue separately if it came up.
