ECONOMIC GOOD NEWS--4.2 MILLION TO 6.9 MILLION IN ADDITIONAL TAXES PER YEAR IF REZONE IS APPROVED
Release Date: May 07, 2013

The Greenburgh Town Board will hear an exciting presentation tomorrow evening after 8 PM about a proposed rezone that could generate between 4.2 million and 6.9 million dollars a year in taxes WITHOUT having any negative impact on the local school district. The property is located at Eastview (near few homes) –next to the Madison Square Garden training facility (which houses the NY Knicks, Liberty and Rangers teams) and Regeneron (named as the best bio tech place to work for in the world!). The millions in additional taxes does not include side benefits: local economic multipliers and other related spin offs. Great news—for the long term financial health of our town!
The Town Board is reviewing an application for amendments to the Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map of the Town of Greenburgh creating a new Planned Economic Development (PED) zoning district and to rezone approximately 100± acre site located at 777 Old Saw Mill River Road, in order to permit flexibility in the design and development of a planned center containing diverse uses that are intended to promote the economic and efficient use of land, including tax revenues and jobs, while also preserving sensitive environmental features within preserved open spaces and to allow for the development buildings on the site.
The proposed development on the eastern portion of the Site includes 125,450 square feet of retail, a 3,750 square feet bank, and a 110-room hotel, with access from Old Saw Mill River Road, Route 9A, and the existing loop road. Proposed development on the western portion of the Site includes two big box retail stores (totaling 286,000 square feet) and a gas station, with access from the existing loop road.
In response to Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee comments, the applicant has submitted Alternative H. The Draft Plan calls for all 180 acres of the Landmark at Eastview site (including already developed areas and the 100 vacant land areas addressed in this DEIS) to be included in a bio-tech center, which would be identified in the Comprehensive Plan as “Research and Development Cluster North.” The plan envisions this area to be part of a Westchester County bio-tech hub, extending into Mount Pleasant, and including the Medical Center and the County Grassland complex, as well as the balance of the Landmark site in Mount Pleasant. In the western portion of the site, a total of 1,055,000 square feet of laboratory and office use in five buildings is proposed. The proposed development on the eastern portion of the Site includes 125,450 square feet of retail, a 3,750 square feet bank, and a 110-room hotel, with access from Old Saw Mill River Road, Route 9A, and the existing loop road.
A Public Hearing on the DEIS and Site Plan will be scheduled for June 12, 2013 to start accepting public comment. The Town is looking forward to working with the Village of Elmsford and the Town of Mount Pleasant on this application.
