Toll Bros Eyes Yorktown for New Senior Housing

As Westchester’s senior population continues to grow, so does the need for more senior housing. With that in mind, nationally known homebuilder Toll Brothers is setting its sights on the Town of Yorktown with a proposal to build a 136-unit, age-restricted townhouse development at the Field Home property.

Toll Brothers’ officials recently made a preliminary presentation to the Town Board about their vision for the 50-acre property off Catherine Street that is under contract for purchase. Renderings depicted three- and four-unit townhomes clustered around a community club house and an outdoor swimming pool. The homes will be sold to active adults 55 and older at market rate, and after construction the property will be controlled by a homeowners’ association.

The Town previously approved a proposal for a 108-unit complex at the site with the option to expand by 30 or 40 units. The builder behind that proposal only completed an adjacent 96-bed nursing home, which was also approved as part of that development. The property contains the former Catherine Field Home, originally founded by an Episcopal nun in 1887 as a home for older women. The building is significantly dilapidated, but Toll Brothers stated that it is committed to preserving the façade and front third of the structure as agreed under a previously approved development proposal for the property.

Toll Brothers representatives stated that they will seek a rezoning of the property to accommodate their plan, but no applications have been submitted to the Town. Supervisor Matt Slater said Toll Brothers’ presentation is evidence of Yorktown’s increasing attractiveness to developers and home seekers.

“The Town should be very proud that Toll Brothers is looking to do something in the Town of Yorktown, but obviously we’re going to take the correct steps in the process and make sure that everything is done in accordance with all the requirements. We look forward to hearing from you on those next steps,” said Supervisor Slater.
