Through a number of studies and planning exercises, critiqued and refined with the assistance of several nationally recognized professional planning and design experts, the City has identified a set of real estate development goals and objectives it seeks to implement over the next several years.

The overarching concept for development downtown is the creation of an active, mixed-use district with convenient, safe, and pleasant access to the New Rochelle Transportation Center. This plan would incorporate the development of economically diverse high quality housing, modern retail, commercial, office and hotel space integrated with a well-designed pedestrian friendly streetscape and by an abundance of green space.

Master Development Agreement Signed with RDRXR
To that end, the New Rochelle City Council unanimously approved a Master Developer Agreement (“MDA”) with RDRXR at a special council meeting on December 15, signaling the start of the largest and most significant economic development initiative in the city’s history. The goals of this effort are to:
  • Enhance our city’s downtown area in a way that appeals to members of our entire city and the larger region and serves as a catalyst for job creation, economic growth, private investment, and higher property values.
  • Usher New Rochelle into the 21st century, while respecting our city’s history and soul, and celebrating and enhancing New Rochelle’s cultural and artistic vitality.
  • Leverage and utilize New Rochelle’s unparalleled location and transit access to provide attractive housing options for young professionals, seniors and the workforce.
  • Strengthen New Rochelle’s tax base and provide a positive return to taxpayers.
  • Improve our environment through green, sustainable, energy-efficient design while creating a new skyline with iconic architecture that inspires civic pride.
