Town Homes at West Way and Garito Manor

New Rochelle, NY

view next project >

The Town Homes at West Way provide affordable housing for first-time homebuyers in 25 new duplexes, while the seven-story Garito Manor offers 102 affordable residential units and lifestyle services for seniors in downtown New Rochelle, New York. This ambitious intergenerational program was proposed by the not-for profit New Rochelle Neighborhood Revitalization Corporation (NRNRC) on a shared 2.5 acre urban redevelopment site.

The NRNRC’s program called for efficient and cost-effective planning on a site it had assembled from 15 separate smaller parcels. DTS coordinated with two architects to produce a compact yet extremely livable site plan that would accommodate the Phase 1 program as well as future expansion onto adjoining properties. DTS provided close coordination with city agencies to facilitate the funding and construction of a replacement stormwater main and upgrades to the adjoining city streets and streetscape. We also worked closely with the architects to develop site engineering and landscape architectural solutions to accommodate zero-lot line conditions within the townhome layout.

The Town Homes at West Way and Garito Manor together form a successful example of affordable urban redevelopment on a tight site with a limited budget.
