I have just learned that Cooper Hill apartments (Cooper Dr.) has been offered for sale by Cushman and Wakefield. It is a 216 unit garden style community. The children at this complex attend Trinity School, IEY Middle School and New Rochelle High School.
The exclusive agents state there is a potential to increase development density per the zoning. The permitted height is three stories and there is the capacity to increase the FAR by approximately 50%. This provides the potential to either add a floor to each building or add additional buildings, as the current improved coverage is half of what is allowable. There is significant space available for new buildings in the areas where there are currently non-attached garages, as well as, on an unimproved lot at the southwest corner of the site.
Can we afford more children in our schools? Will the buyer ask for tax abatements? When will the East End be included on appointed boards and committees and will the mayor hear the people including the quiet people who do not go to hearings or march in protests?
