RXR Realty announced this week the launch of leasing at 360 Huguenot, its 28-story, 280-unit mixed-use building at the site of a former Loew’s Theatre in downtown New Rochelle.
The project, initially known as 587 Main, is the first high-rise development to hit the market under the city’s creation of a Downtown Overlay Zone in 2015 when it also designated RXR as Master Developer.
Under the plan, New Rochelle tapped RXR Realty and Renaissance Downtowns to develop more than 11 million square feet downtown as part of a master plan that includes 6,370 residential units. The goal is to attract 20,000 new residents in the next decade, which would bring New Rochelle’s population up to 100,000.
Units range from studios starting at about $1,900 per month to two-bedroom apartments starting at $3,100. Occupancy is slated for next month. Residences feature hardwood floors, walk-in closets, stainless-steel appliances, Latch keyless technology and views of the New York City skyline, Westchester County and the Long Island Sound.
360 Huguenot, which was developed by ABS Partners and Brause Realty along with RXR, was designed by PS&S Architecture, and Alliance Residential is the company handling leasing at the building.
Amenities include a 24-hour attended lobby with fireplace, an outdoor terrace with grills and green space, a private dining lounge, a conference room, a game room with billiards, an expansive indoor/outdoor yoga studio and fitness center with Peloton bikes, a pet spa, electric car charging stations, on-site valet parking and bicycle storage.
In addition to containing 14,000 square feet of new retail space, the base of 360 Huguenot contains a new 10,000-square-foot arts and cultural space that RXR constructed and will be programmed by the city as part of New Rochelle’s Community Benefit Bonus program.
Last month, RXR, in conjunction with the city, announced a contest for artists, the winner of which will receive a studio apartment, free of charge, for one year in 360 Huguenot.
RXR has also restored the historic façade and marquee of the former Loews Theatre along Main Street, which had been closed and gutted several years ago before RXR’s involvement.
360 Huguenot is located within a five-minute walk of the New Rochelle train station, which is serviced by Amtrak and Metro-North.
