Westchester’s Ginsburg Development Companies (GDC) has joined with county and city officials to celebrate the transformation of a former office tower into luxury rental apartments in White Plains, now called 1 Martine at City Square.
“We are thrilled to welcome 1 Martine at City Square to its premiere location in the heart of downtown White Plains,” says Westchester County Executive George Latimer. “This luxury living community offers dozens of desirable amenities and a vibe that is unique to Westchester County, along with the convenience of a 38-minute commute to New York City. Congratulations to Ginsburg Development Companies on the successful conversion of empty office space into an exciting new rental opportunity.”
Martin Ginsburg, founder of GDC, now marks 1 Martine at City Square as the latest addition to his portfolio alongside the numerous existing properties GDC owns and manages throughout Westchester. 1 Martine at City Square represents the blending of Ginsburg’s appreciation for art with the bustling atmosphere of city living. “Nothing about 1 Martine is cookie cutter or ordinary. Our apartment layouts are truly unique, and our art-inspired amenities create a SoHo vibe that is quite unexpected in Westchester County,” Ginsburg says.
The former office tower is now the home to 188 loft-style apartments with spacious features that combine luxury with urban influences and artistry. Each apartment offers SoHo-inspired kitchens, designer bathrooms, and extra-large walk-in closets, among other unique features.
And residents no longer need to travel to New York City to experience the beauty and tranquility of Central Park, as the parking garage for 1 Martine and GDC’s adjoining The Metro apartment building is topped by City Square Central Park, a private one-acre park that holds waterfalls, walking paths, outdoor dining, and putting greens. Other luxurious amenities include 24/7 concierge service, a roof deck that will be available for events and private parties, a state-of-the-art fitness center, cinema screening room, and more.
Furthering Ginsberg’s love of art, 1 Martine also boasts a 20,000-square-foot public art gallery on the ground floor that will offer original paintings and reproductions, sculptures, and home décor at discounted prices for renters. A new common space will also house a contemporary art collection featuring numerous Hudson Valley artists.

Studio, 1-bedroom/1-bath, and 2-bedroom/2-bath apartments range in size from 425 to 1,170 square feet, with monthly rents ranging from $2,250 to $5,450.
While 1 Martine at City Square is the first major office building in Westchester to be converted into luxury rental apartments, Ginsburg does not believe it will be the last in a post-pandemic world. “1 Martine at City Square is not only Westchester’s most exciting luxury rental, it’s also a transformational development that is setting a trend for rental housing in this region. With more and more people working from home, empty office buildings may become new residential apartments,” says Ginsburg.
