Pelham, NY Elk Homes, a developer of rental and multifamily housing, celebrated a milestone with the “topping off” of Colonial Court, a new 16-unit residence. The topping off marks the completion of the final floor and roof of the building. The architect was Crozier-Gedney of Rye.
Colonial Court will feature two and three-bedroom residences ranging in size from 1,600 to 2,200 s/f. There will also be a 1,200 s/f, one-bedroom residence with den. All residences will have expansive windows for an abundance of natural light.
The residences will have full chef’s kitchens with appliances by Viking, spa baths, walk-in closets, private terraces and high-end finishes throughout. The penthouse residences will have 11-ft. ceilings and fireplaces. Amenities will include a pet spa, full fitness center and a rooftop terrace.
Located at 8 Blvd. West, Colonial Court will offer walkability and transit-oriented convenience. The Metro-North train station, Picture House, public library, restaurants and green spaces are all short walks away. Colonial Court is expected to open this summer with a model residence opening in May.
“We anticipate strong demand for these new homes, especially given the ‘live, work, play’ model people are looking for today,” said Gary Hirsch, chairman of Elk Homes. While it is early for us to establish pricing and begin any marketing efforts, we are very pleased with the initial unsolicited interest in the building. This interest further confirms our expectations that this is an exciting housing alternative that does not yet exist in Pelham, and will be well received by the community.”
Colonial Court, which is the first development of its kind in the village in decades, is a key element in the revitalization of the village. Two years ago, the village board amended the village’s zoning code to establish a Business District Floating Zone, which encouraged mixed-use commercial, office, retail and housing projects within the 0.8 square-mile village’s downtown district.
“We commend mayor Michael Volpe and the board of trustees for having the vision to support the zoning amendment which will attract and support commercial businesses, increase tax revenues and create new housing options that had not existed,” said Hirsch.
Colonial Court is the fourth residential development by Elk Homes. In nearby Mamaroneck, Elk Homes has also developed Harbor Court, a six-unit apartment building at 108 Mamaroneck Ave.; Marina Court, a 13-unit apartment building at 422 Boston Post Rd., and Coastal Court, an exclusive collection of luxury townhomes in the heart of downtown Mamaroneck.
Founded in 2000, Elk Homes is based in Rye, and currently owns and operates a mix of 64 residential properties in the New York-metropolitan area and Fairfield County, Conn.
