Now dubbed Switch2 Ten, the historic former switch station is about to add 160,000 square feet of office space to the heart of Westchester.

While many offices were shutting down over the pandemic, Bajraktari Real Estate, the property management group behind the ultra-popular Hudson River Landing space in Dobbs Ferry, has been hard at work renovating one of the county’s most historic vacancies into a chic new office building that still honors its history.

 10 County Center Rd was originally built as the headquarters of the New York Telephone Company in 1956. Over the years it changed hands as its parent company evolved into Bell Atlantic, NYNEX, Bell again, and finally Verizon before passing hands repeatedly without much purpose in the 2000s.

Now dubbed Switch2 Ten, the 160,000 square foot rectangular “O” building has been completely restored, adding modern conveniences like high-grade insulation and soundproofing (a must in the busy city of White Plains). The building’s main lobby showcases the property’s history, with a grand entrance, complete with “NYNEX” stamped polished concrete floors and a giant replica switchboard as a reminder of its pivotal role in bridging American communications over the better part of the last century.

Switch2 Ten is currently looking for a restaurant tenant for the ground floor, with additional reserved space for 10,000+ sq. ft. clients, such as a gym for the early morning commuter crowd.

“The restaurant option is really interesting for me because we think the space is amazing and it offers 300-plus parking spots at night, when the rest of White Plains fights over the same crowed parking lot,” says Property Manager Florim Bajraktari.

The third floor sports 30 open floor plan office suites ranging from 800 to 1,800 sq. ft., as well as common conference rooms and kitchenette and phone booths for added privacy. Each office is also equipped with independent climate controls, meaning there isn’t shared airflow between offices.
