Developer Says Luxury Condo Coming to Downtown Larchmont

Rye -based developer Elk Homes says it will build a 26-unit luxury condominium residence on Chatsworth Avenue, in the heart of  the Village of Larchmont.

Centro Larchmont would occupy the site of vacant retail spaces, formerly a food market and flower shop, which are slated for demolition.

Elk says the 26-unit development, to be built at 112 Chatsworth Avenue and 65 Wendt Avenue will include 23 market rate and 3 affordable condominium residences ranging in size from 900 square feet to 3,500 square feet. Centro Larchmont will feature an elegant lobby entrance and will include 5,000 square feet of modern retail space along Chatsworth Avenue.

Information about when construction will begin was not available.The project will include redevelopment of the current Village parking lot on the north side of Wendt Avenue, which will become a two-story parking structure.  Elk Homes says it will also provide and maintain a new ten-foot wide accessible pedestrian walkway from the parking lot to Chatsworth Avenue.

How long will the parking lot on Wendt be out of commission? Want to know what kind of strain will be on parking spots then until this “2 story parking structure” will be built.

Bad for Larchmont, bad for home owners, good for whomever is reaping the windfall of selling these apartments. Urbanization if Larchmont will drive down property values of homes here. Compare Larchmont now to even ten years ago, more crowded, less open space, fewer trees, no parking, fewer beach memberships (a lottery this year for the first time). We risk becoming the upscale section of New Rochelle.

Has this thing been approved by anyone other than the developer? What stage in the Village’s approval process is it in?

Great news! This will be a real shot in the arm to local business.

People, density is good in central business districts like Larchmont. Here’s why: people equal commerce. Empty storefronts beget restaurants. Restaurants beget nightlife. Check out New Rochelle’s downtown renaissance. It’s a result of density, people, apartments. Why is Mamaroneck so vibrant and Larchmont so, yawn, not? People. Density. Money to be made. You probably call yourselves capitalists, so recognize this as a benefit of capitalism!

Three “affordable” seems amusing and how about the scale of the proposed building compared to the rest of the block? Also not mentioned yet is the generic “any town” architecture.

It’s about time. Our village needs a serious facelift and the parking structure is seriously in need. I certainly understand the classroom issues, my son went to Chatsworth. But I agree that the number of school-age kids in this kind of building will be minimal. Thank you investors, and you know who you are!

I would like to know how this project has gotten approval?!?! The schools are bursting and struggling w increased class sizes and no field space for youth sports and a developer gets approval for MORE housing?! The town infrastructure/ facilities- schools, streets, parking CANNOT handle more residents/housing of that scale.

We need parking strauctires built – turf fields etc., not more housing!

And to claim that families will not reside there seems preposterous.

Not many kids, if any, at the Cambium, right? Downtown congestion is my concern.

The developer mentions that the proposed building is unlikely to be home to many children. The increased traffic is more troublesome, and a two-deck parking structure on Wendt might be too much. Larchmont isn’t NYC.

Larchmont needs more classrooms rather than condos. The school district is already oversubscribed and this will only exasperate the problems faced by the schools. I don’t see how this can be approved without taking this into consideration.

Click on Centro Larchmont in blue, which takes you to the developer’s site. Read “benefits to the community.”

My neighbors, with two kids, recently moved to The Cambium, so yes, there are kids living there.
I always log onto a developer’s web site to get accurate information about how its development will “benefit the community.” Anyone want to buy a bridge to Brooklyn?

The Village doesn’t have enough parking to support this many units. Can they build another lot?
