WHITE PLAINS, NY - A development partnership comprising Saber Real Estate Advisors LLC, PCD Development LLC, and Circle Squared Alternative Investments marked the groundbreaking of “The Duet,” a luxury multi-family residential complex on Hale and Maple avenues in White Plains.
The development, across from the Neiman Marcus entrance at The Westchester and adjacent to Whole Foods, will feature 127 rental units in two buildings and offer residents luxurious apartments and high-end amenities in a premier location in the heart of White Plains. City and Westchester County officials were on site for the groundbreaking.
“I’m happy to welcome The Duet to White Plains,” said Mayor Thomas Roach. “This project will add to the lively and interesting vibe we have been working to create in downtown White Plains. The city has many amenities to offer that will complement this project. I’m pleased to see this project moving forward, thanks chiefly to Marty Berger/Saber and their confidence in our city.”
Martin Berger, Managing Member of Saber Real Estate Advisors of Armonk, N.Y., thanked the mayor and other elected officials for their support. “We’re so grateful for the reception we’ve received and look forward to continuing our collaboration with the city,” Berger said. “We’re excited to offer residents an unparalleled elegant lifestyle and to further the city’s goal of creating a vibrant ‘24/7 live-work-play community’. The Duet will enhance the downtown by bringing in new shoppers and patrons to enjoy the city’s dynamic retail and dining scene.”
The Duet at 97-114 Hale Ave. will comprise two buildings – the east lot will be seven stories high with 70 units, and the west lot will be eight stories with 57 units. Both buildings will offer secure and private climate-controlled indoor parking for residents and a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units with rents ranging from $1,600 to $3,600 per month. Residents will also enjoy luxurious finishes, double vanities and high-end appliances, along with access to rooftop and indoor lounges, a fitness facility and business center.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Saber Realty Advisors and Circle Squared on this strategic opportunity in downtown White Plains,” said Jonathan Stein, Managing Member of PCD Development LLC of New Providence, N.J. “The development of this site is a great complement to our business pipeline in Westchester County, which includes the Edge-on-Hudson master-planned community in Sleepy Hollow.”
“White Plains is the jewel of Westchester County,” said Jeff Sica, President and CEO of New Jersey-based Circle Squared Alternative Investments. “With so much to offer from a commerce and recreation perspective, the city continues to grow as it attracts new businesses and families looking to call White Plains home. We could not be more excited to work with our partners to bring this project to life and give those eyeing White Plains as a place to live, a beautiful place to do so.”
