Luxury, Mixed-Use Rental Community Proposed in Harrison

Plans have been unveiled for transforming the 28 acre-former Renaissance Westchester Hotel site in Harrison into a vibrant residential community, including retail and cultural venues available to the public.

Sponsored by long-term friends and partners, Rose Equities and Garden Communities envision a connected and thriving Teardrop neighborhood in Harrison, with Renaissance Harrison as its crown jewel. The two family-owned real estate companies recently presented plans for the new community to the Harrison Planning Board. Renaissance Harrison will add to the emerging “live work play” environment of the Teardrop, which is surrounded by I-287, the Hutchinson River Parkway, and I-684.

“The proposed 28-acre community will be unlike any other development in Westchester. It will adhere to 21st-century standards of walking and biking, sustainability, and respect for the property’s outstanding natural landscape,” said Leonard Glickman, principal of Rose Equities, which is developing the community with Garden Communities, both multi-generational, family-owned real estate companies.

If approved, Renaissance Harrison will be built in two phases and will consist of two residential quads—the North Quad and South Quad—two large gathering spaces to be known as the Commons and the Mansion, and two sets of triplex villas. Neither phase will exceed 380 units, with a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom luxury apartment homes, many with terraces to enhance indoor-outdoor living, while creating a feeling of community. The architectural design will celebrate Westchester County’s classic Tudor and Arts & Crafts structures. Proposed luxury amenities include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, fitness centers, tennis courts, fire pits and an outdoor amphitheater.

“Quality of life is our priority, and we are emphasizing this ideal with large living spaces. We envision amenities that will thrill the spirit and soothe the soul. Our idea is to deliver an unprecedented residential lifestyle that reflects the surrounding communities’ tastes and expectations,” said Scott Loventhal of Garden Communities.

The owner-builders intend to preserve and renovate a 1905 Normandy-style mansion on the property (commonly known simply as “The Mansion”) that was the former home of architect John Merven Carrere.
