New Rochelle refining waterfront district plans for Pratt Landing

Sep 15, 2017

“More than 27 acres make up the site along the Sound, which includes the soon-to-be-moved City Yard and a deteriorating Armory building. Twining will build Pratt Landing, a 12.5-acre waterfront district in the center of the overall site.”

“The first waterfront district meeting was attended by more than 50 eager city residents, who worked interactively in groups with site plans to craft their own ideas of what they’d like to see at Pratt Landing. Most groups mentioned wanting a waterfront pathway, a boat launch and converting the historic Armory into a sort of public marketplace.”
