Final plans for a new senior citizen apartment building on Romaine Avenue will be presented to the Yonkers Planning Board in September.
The proposed four-story building features three floors of apartments above a common space on the ground level. The apartment units will be split evenly between 12 studios and 12 one-bedroom units. All of these units will be rented at market rates. Due to the low-volume of units, no designated affordable housing units are required by the city’s current affordable housing ordinance. Ground-level parking will accommodate 13 parking spaces. The City’s zoning code allows a 50% reduction in parking from its standard requirement for senior citizen housing.
The developer on the project is Michael Mastrogiacomo of the Port Chester-based Mastrogiacomo Engineering. Abraham Rabadi is listed as the contact for the applicant, “10 Romaine Plaza LLC”, and owner of the property.
To ensure the continuity of the senior citizen housing project, the city suggested implementing a deed restriction on the site. The developer has embraced this idea, agreeing to this measure to safeguard the building’s purpose in the future.
The senior citizen apartment building on 10 Romaine Ave promises to be a valuable addition to the community, addressing the housing needs of the elderly while providing a safe and comfortable living environment.
