The Continuum - White Plains, NY

White Plains, NY LCOR, a fully integrated real estate investment management and development company, has debuted the Continuum, an innovative transit-oriented development featuring a selection of residences, a wealth of first-class amenities and access to mass transit.  

Located at 55 Bank St. immediately adjacent to the White Plains Metro-North station, Continuum features a 16-story tower with 288 residences and 3,000 s/f of ground floor retail space and underground parking with 381 spaces. The designed residences feature contemporary finishes with windows that create an open feel with views of the downtown area and the Manhattan skyline. The project was designed by SCLE Architects and LRC Construction LLC was the general contractor.

Continuum features an array of  amenities from the grand two-story lobby with 24-hour concierge to a Sky Lounge that includes a club room with a full complement of entertainment options including a fireplace, kitchen, private dining area and multiple smart TVs. An adjacent roof-top deck has an open air terrace, fire pit and views of Manhattan. Residents can also enjoy a sundeck terrace with swimming pool, plantings, outdoor furnishings and BBQ grills. There is also a fitness club, business center, children’s playroom and game room/simulator.

Located near the White Plains Metro-North station, Continuum is only a 30-minute commute to Grand Central Station. 

“Continuum is a unique opportunity to enjoy a sophisticated lifestyle with outstanding amenities, 24-hour concierge and an unbeatable location that’s minutes from Metro-North and everything that Downtown White Plains has to offer,” said Brian Barry, senior vice president of LCOR.  “We are especially proud to be part of the remarkable renaissance under way in downtown White Plains.”   

Mayor Thomas Roach said, “The importance of a vibrant, well-functioning transit hub to a city cannot be understated. In White Plains we are moving forward with plans to improve our transit district. The Continuum aligns with our vision for the District and I am pleased to see it come to fruition. In addition to a great living space, Continuum residents will be perfectly situated to take advantage of the planned improvements to the city’s Transit District. Our commuters will have additional parking options with the addition of 200 + public parking spaces, which more than replaces the parking that had been there before. This project also includes 57 units of affordable housing, 20% of the total units. The Continuum is a win for our community.”  

Continuum is a key component in the Bank Street Redevelopment Area created by the City of White Plains. Previously a municipal parking lot, LCOR purchased the property from the City.  The second phase of the $250 million project consists of another 16-story tower with 273 residences and ground-floor retail.
