Harrison Executive Office Park, 3000-3030 Westchester Avenue, has an application before the TVH Planning Board for — Site Plan Review, Special Exception Use Permit, SEQR Review, and Public Hearing. Other applications for the site have been before the TVH Planning board in 2002, 2003, and 2007 in various forms. The current application requests to add a single (4) four- story building to the existing office park. The site is located on the big curve of Westchester Ave — where Purchase Street begins. It was noted at the Planning Board meeting that this site is considered by some to be in area that acts a "gateway" to Purchase.
The 2007 version of the application asked for same total square footage (106,482 sq feet) but in two separate buildings. The proposed building would add a fourth building that is larger in size, than the existing three, to the office park. The developers have told PEPA that the building will be "green," LEED certified, and feature an attractive design that is architecturally prominent, designed to show itself to travelers on 287.
If approved the application would require a significant parking variance (over 150 spaces). The public hearing for the application remains open and will be heard at the next meeting of the Harrison Planning Board on March 24th, 2009. Interested community members are urged to attend.
