BCW Urges Rezone for Wegmans Supermarket

The Business Council of Westchester has voiced its strong support for a Wegmans supermarket on Corporate Park Drive in Harrison, saying it fits in with the Town of Harrison’s plan to repurpose the I-287 corridor from office parks to residential. The BCW’s letter of support was sent in advance of Wednesday night’s public hearing on a proposed zoning change for the property at 106-110 Corporate Park Drive.

Normandy Real Estate Partners is proposing to demolish the empty buildings and construct a new 125,000-square-foot supermarket. The proposal would provide jobs as well as shopping for residents expected to move into a new building at 103-105 Corporate Park Drive. A zoning change would be needed before the project could go forward.

“The proposed use will revive the entire I-287 corridor by providing suitable, complementary, non-office development, which will replace underutilized buildings, and help preserve the tax base created by surrounding office uses, without burdening the school system or existing infrastructure,’’ said letter explained. “It will also create hundreds of excellent jobs for our resident with Wegmans known commitment to employee job growth.”
