Yonkers Meeting April 29

I've been wondering what's been going on with the ball-park project-- This is supposed to happen about 7 blocks from our house!

This from the Westchester Business Journal

The $1.4 billion redevelopment project in downtown Yonkers proposed by Struever Fidelco Cappelli (SFC) L.L.C. will be the focus of a Yonkers City Council public hearing at 6:30 p.m. April 29 in the council chambers at City Hall.

The projected three-year construction includes River Park Center, a retail shopping, entertainment and parking complex topped by a 6,500-seat minor league baseball stadium and two 50-story apartment towers; Palisades Point, a mixed-use waterfront development with two 25-story apartment towers, and Cacace Center, a commercial office, hotel and fire department complex.

The public will have two weeks after the hearing to submit written comments to the council. A second public hearing will be at 7 p.m. May 13 at Roosevelt High School.

Written comments may be sent to: Rocky Richard, Chief of Staff, Office of the Council President, 40 S. Broadway, Room 403, Yonkers, NY 10701. They can be sent to her by e-mail at

SFC officials have said they hope to begin construction this year.

Yonkers City Council public seems to be a great deal. Its very nice that there would be a shopping center which would be liked by everyone. Its great going to buy things where we live.
