Peeskill, NY Continuing a commitment to the revitalization of Peekskill, Ginsburg Development Companies (GDC) principal Martin Ginsburg joined with mayor Frank Catalina and other city officials and dignitaries on September 14th for a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of construction of Gateway Townhomes.

 Located at 700 Main St. at the gateway to the city from Rte. 9, Gateway Townhomes features 16 rowhouse townhome-style condos with a selection of triplex two and three-bedroom homes ranging in size from 1,649 s/f to 1,915 s/f. The first floor of each townhome will feature an entrance hall, home office/guest room and a two-car garage. The second floor will consist of the living and dining rooms with a large eat-in kitchen, with the top floor featuring two or three bedrooms.

The city asked GDC to develop the former municipally-owned site as a for-sale homeownership project when GDC began the approval process for its Fort Hill Apartments community located nearby.

“We recognized the importance of this site as a gateway to the city of Peekskill and its downtown and was happy to make this neighborhood townhome development part of our holistic commitment and investment in the city,” said Ginsburg. “We are pleased to offer GDC quality townhomes at prices that are very reasonable for new construction condominiums in Westchester County, ideal for both first-time homebuyers and empty-nesters looking to downsize who want to enjoy the convenience of downtown living.” 

“Thanks to Ginsburg Development Companies and everyone who has made this project a reality” said County Executive Robert P. Astorino. “The continued revitalization of Peekskill and developments like these being built all over Westchester proves over and over again that our county is a top tier location to live, work, go to school, and raise a family”

“I cannot express my joy and excitement at the commencement of this project. It represents the first new construction in this area of Main St. in over 65 years.  We thank Martin Ginsburg and the Ginsburg Development Corp. for staying in Peekskill and accepting this challenging project. He is a true visionary who is changing the face of Peekskill forever and we thank him,” said mayor Catalina.

“Thanks to Ginsburg Development Companies and everyone who has made this project a reality” said county executive Robert Astorino. “The continued revitalization of Peekskill and developments like these being built all over Westchester proves over and over again that our county is a top tier location to live, work, go to school, and raise a family.”

The townhomes, which are located within an easy walk to downtown restaurants and shops, will share a shuttle bus to the Peekskill Metro-North Station with GDC’s Fort Hill development. Sales are expected to begin in the Summer of 2018.
