Removing any doubt that Yonkers is one of the hottest markets in the county for new residential projects is a trio of apartment towers that made recent debuts in this Southern Westchester hotspot: Sawyer Place (at 55 Main St) and River Club at Hudson Park (at 63 Wells Ave) are in Downtown Yonkers, while Stratus on Hudson (at 1077 Warburton Ave) is in North Yonkers.
The three luxury high-rise rental buildings have a lot in common, as they all tout top-of-the-line amenities, proximity to transit into NYC, affordability (relative to the City), and the increasingly popular urban/suburban lifestyle that many Westchesterites are seeking.
