The revitalization of White Plains continues with a new plan to redevelop this disused senior facility into luxurious mixed-use apartments.

White Plains is about to get a new jewel in the downtown area’s crown, as a vacant senior residence prepares to be transformed into a 212-unit high-end rental community.

The currently vacant building that stands at 1 Lyon Place in White Plains is being prepped for a total makeover after being acquired by Brooklyn-based investment and developing company, Beitel Group.

Ben Beitel, CEO of Beitel Group, explains, “We believe it is essential to include a comprehensive and top-notch amenity package to create an enjoyable environment in all of our residential communities.” And it’s safe to say that the blueprints for the reinvented 1 Lyon Place are overflowing with such amenities. Residents will be sitting in the lap of luxury with features including full-time concierge and doorman, outdoor barbecue area, wellness and fitness center, game room, and much more. Of course, Beitel Group can’t forget man’s best friend, so while you’re relaxing by the outdoor swimming pool, your pup can enjoy some pampering in the dog grooming area.

Beitel Group hopes that the development will be successful in bringing a refreshing energy to downtown while continuing to honor the hard work of the city’s current residents. One element that hopes to accomplish this goal will be a rotating art gallery inside One Lyon that will feature exhibits from ArtsWestchester with works by local artists.

In total, One Lyon will accommodate 212 units including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. Construction will begin immediately, with plans to be completed by late summer or early fall of 2022.

Although it may be difficult to imagine the revitalization of a former senior residence into a luxury rental community, Matthew Rand, CEO of Rand Realty, which will exclusively represent the Beitel Group to bring this project to market, has nothing but faith in the future of One Lyon at 1 Lyon Place as he feels that “this project will be a tremendous success and help redevelop a community in White Plains left abandoned for so many years.”
