Larchmont Teardown of the Week

5 Vandenburgh Avenue

This week, the Teardown of the Week…has not yet been approved by the Larchmont Planning Board. But an application has been made to tear down 5 Vandenburgh Avenue and replace it with four single family homes. Yes, 4. The lot is half an acre.

It was sold in January for a reported $2,007,000.

RGF Development Corp.’s application for Block 607,  Lot 286 has previously been adjourned at the 12/9/13, 1/6, 3/10, 4/7, 5/5, 6/9,  and the 7/7/14  Planning Board meetings.  It is on the agenda again for Nov. 10.

The location is very close to Turtle Park, popular with toddlers.

What do you think?

Appalled ! Go to next Planning Board meeting Nov 10th to voice your opinion at the public hearing and make sure this project gets scaled back! Really 4 houses means 4 driveways kids the will be crossing on the way to the park! Was told current plans propose removing all trees. This sounds like overdevelopment by a greedy developer invading our village just to make money!

Can we all spell Greed? That’s all it is, pure and simple. There can be no other explanation for tearing down a lovely and perfectly acceptable house simply because it happens to be on a lot that some short-sighted developer thinks is large enough to squeeze in four houses. This is so wrong.
