Larchmont— This time, the teardown property is 15 Thompson Place, a relatively modest home with a footprint of 2377 sq ft on a lot of about 0.25 acre.
A developer plans to increase the footprint by 96%.
Village of Larchmont Board of Trustees is scheduled to announce its decision April 8 at 10:30 am at a Special Meeting.
On March 9, 15 Thompson Place Realty LLC submitted an application to the Board for relief from Local Law 1-2016, “A Temporary Moratorium of Certain Land Use Applications that are Pending or may be Subsequently Filed with the Village of Larchmont.”
The applicant attests the Moratorium results in an “unnecessary hardship” on the subject property.
The applicant is proposing to demolish the existing single-family residence in order to construct a new single-family residence with a footprint of 2,377 square feet (a 96% increase in footprint size), as depicted on the plans submitted to the Village.
The proposal would also result in a 64% increase in lot coverage (965 square feet) and a 58% increase in impervious surface area (1,589 square feet).
A similar appeal to demolish the iconic Larchmont Manor home at 40 Ocean Ave. to construct four single family residences was denied by the Board last month.
