White Plains Adds a New Glass-Faced, Two-Tower Complex

A new mixed-use development is primed to add glitz and a pair of 44-story high-rises to a city on the rebound.

One developer’s belief that White Plains is a city on the rebound has led to the construction of Westchester County’s tallest buildings and first Ritz-Carlton. ”We see the city emerging as a destination – as a great place to live, work, and play,” says Bruce Berg, executive vice president of Cappelli Enterprises of Valhalla, N.Y., which is building the new Renaissance Square complex in the heart of White Plains. “It’s becoming a 24-7 city.” Cappelli had previously built the $350 million, 1.1-million-sq-ft City Center at White Plains in 2005.That complex, across the street from Renaissance Square, contains two 35-story towers with rental apartments and residential condominiums, a parking garage, and a retail and entertainment complex.

“City Center was a catalyst for the revitalization of White Plains,” Berg says.

Now, Cappelli and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Co. of Chevy Chase, Md., are co-developing the $500 million, 950,000-sq-ft Renaissance Square, which will have two towers linked by a low-rise component.
