NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – The New Rochelle zoning board will review the designs for a new medical office building and parking garage next to Sound Shore Medical Center Tuesday at its regular monthly meeting.
The board has to determine if a canopy on one side of the medical center’s buildings is far enough away from the street to allow the center’s two parcels to be considered a single property. If so, the board will kick the plans back to the Planning Board.
Construction of the 100,000-square-foot, $26 million medical office building and 4½-level, $9 million parking garage would begin between December and February if everything is approved. The medical center would use private financing to build the project.
If the zoning board OKs the design, the project will go before the Planning Board on Sept. 25.
New Rochelle Planning Board Chairman Douglas Hocking said project developer Landmark Healthcare Facilities also needs to explain the impact on the neighborhood and residents will get to weigh in at some point during a public hearing.
“This is an interesting project,” Hocking said when Landmark presented its plans to the planning board.
The zoning board meeting is scheduled at 7 p.m. in room B-1 in the City Hall Annex.
