Rendering of 11 Lawton, with National City Bank building in the foreground

More than any other single development proposal, the project approved this week by the New Rochelle Planning Board at 11 Lawton Street exemplifies the goals of our visionary downtown plan.

It has everything: high-quality housing of different types, modern retail and restaurant space, and a new hotel, contained within two architecturally distinctive towers, coupled with adaptive reuse of a beloved historic structure. I am particularly pleased that this development will diversify our housing stock with the first new condominiums approved within the downtown overlay.

In its totality, 11 Lawton is among the most significant projects in New Rochelle’s history, and one that will meaningfully advance our efforts to create a thriving, attractive, and sustainable city center.

Here’s a press release with more information.
