The Falcon Group has revised its application for a Subdivision on Sherman Avenue incorporating an alternative layout plan which apparently addresses concerns that the community expressed about the impacts associated with the development of the property. The group anticipates submitting a revised DEIS with the alternative plan within the next few weeks and may appear at the February 24th 2009 meeting.
At the TVH Planning Board Meeting December 16, 2008, an announcement was made about the application for Park Lane Phase XB Wetlands Permit & Steep Slope permits on Forest Lake Drive. The Planning Board denied the applications for both the Wetland Permit and Steep Slopes permit with a unanimous vote.
County Legislator Martin Rogowsky recently shared news with PEPA that the Westchester Joint Waterworks is continuing to work hard establishing an alternative to the large scale filtration plant they want to build in Purchase (near the Airport) that will be acceptable to the Department of Health.
Application for new Office Building on Westchester Avenue
A new application that is before the Planning Board proposes a new office building in Purchase. 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. 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. The application does require a parking variance. The public hearing for the application remains open.
