The Village, along with the Pelham Local Development Corporation (“PLDC”) and Pelham House, LLC (herein, the “Developer”) are proposing a certain multi-phased project (the “Project”) including:

  1. The proposed construction of a 127 residential unit building with approximately 5,000 square feet of street-level commercial space (the “Mixed Use Building”) with 219 parking spaces (including 60 for Village use) upon certain Village-owned parcels (collectively, the “Village owned parcels”) including the following: (i) the Village Fire House at 217 Fifth Avenue (Section 163.36, Block 2, Lots 23 and 24 on the Town of Pelham Tax Map), which is located in the Business-1 District; and (ii) the Village parking lot on the corner of Third Street and Fifth Avenue and the parking deck on the corner of Third Street and Fourth Avenue (Section 163.36, Block 2, Lot 19 on the Town of Pelham Tax Map), which are located in the Business-2 District; and

In furtherance of the proposed Project, PLDC and the Developer entered into a certain Land Development Agreement, dated January 7, 2021 (the “LDA”, as may be amended), wherein the PLDC and Developer, with acknowledgment of the Village, agreed to the terms and conditions pursuant to which the parties would undertake the phased development of the Project.  The Village is considering the declaration of fee title to the Village-owned Parcels as conditionally unneeded for Village use to make same available for the phased transfer thereof and undertaking of the Project, all as more particularly outlined within the LDA (collectively, the “Disposition”).  In accordance with N-PCL Sections 1411(d)(3) and (4), the Village has scheduled and will conduct a public hearing to consider the Disposition of the Village-owned Parcels to PLDC in furtherance of the Project and the terms of the LDA.
