I would love a bookshop as well! It would be great to pick up a book then sit by the waterfront and read it.

Food trucks could be a great addition and the new roads we expect to build on side would provide easy access for food trucks along Pratt street in the development.

Thanks for the note Carol. We expect Pratt Landing to have a mix of affordable housing as well as a beautiful park, for walking and running, that wraps the waterfront!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 1 month, 2 weeks ago
These are great ideas that we will certainly consider as we work with potential retail tenants!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 1 month, 2 weeks ago
We hope to incorporate all of these elements in the masterplan!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 1 month, 2 weeks ago
We hope to bring some fantastic F&B establishments to Pratt Landing!

The next public forum for the new zoning district that Pratt Landing sits inside of is scheduled for tomorrow (12/7/2021) at 3:45pm at City Hall.

Hi Henry, There is a good chance we will have townhouses for purchase as part of the masterplan. We really believe that Pratt Landing will be a great addition to New Rochelle.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Thanks Hank! That is a great point regarding seating. We expect to explore a variety of elements that could activate the public space of the park, including benches, tables, etc. There will also be retail on the ground floor throughout the development which should make it easy to find a good sandwich to eat in the park!

Hi Theodore, thanks so much for the note. The exact unit mix for the residential portion of the development hasn't been established but we expect a diverse mix of people to live in the Pratt Landing, including residents that are 55+ in age.

Thanks for engaging! The waterfront promenade will be an amazing place to jog, watch the sunset and (finally) connect the downtown to the waterfront.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 1 month, 2 weeks ago
We totally agree - The Armory would be an amazing venue for planned events and performances.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 1 month, 2 weeks ago
We are very excited to engage with the local community of artists!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Thanks Garrett! The proposed waterfront promenade will be perfect path to run, jog and commune with nature! We are working to create a living shoreline that will restore natural ecology along the waterfront.

As part of our review we will be conducting a traffic study and will work with the city to implement recommendations and mitigate any concerns.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Hi Brenda- The waterfront will definitely be more accessible.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Thanks for your idea!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Making the waterfront more accessible to the community will open up a lot of possibilities. We agree!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Thanks for your input- we definitely want to incorporate cultural arts into our programming!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 6 months, 1 week ago
Thanks, Kassandra - we think local retailers and small businesses are the way to go to!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Hi Marissa, what types of resources and services do you think would be most valuable? Case management for seniors? After school activities? Adult learning opportunities?
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 6 months, 4 weeks ago
Hi Jane, we are approaching the site design with high regard for resiliency planning, and are raising the site 2' above the FEMA floodplain. We're also rebuilding the shoreline with a "living shoreline" technique, in compliance with DEC's best practices, and avoiding hard edges to the greatest extent possible. This is a high priority for us.

Hi David, agree that Glenn Island can be busy. Due to Echo Bay's shallow draft, larger boats and jet skis won't be passable, which should limit traffic. We have ample parking to accommodate park visitors, and will have public facilities, too!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 6 months, 4 weeks ago
We agree! This would be a great location for a farmer's market.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 6 months, 4 weeks ago
That's a great idea - we're hearing a lot about PAVE. We'll look into this potential partnership.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 6 months, 4 weeks ago
Many votes for a bookstore! We agree heartily.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
Thanks, Joseph. Our goal is to take a largely dormant space and activate it, making the waterfront an accessible and exciting destination. This will bring more people to the waterfront, creating an exciting space for locally-focused retailers and businesses that has not existed. We want feedback as to what types of businesses you think are most needed and think that this new exciting part of New Rochelle will be a great opportunity for retailers and entrepreneurs to set down roots and thrive.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
Thanks for your feedback. We want to program this site with a large amount of community input and be able to offer options for local artists, community groups, and residents. What are some activities you would be interested in?
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
Hi Joseph - With much of the site being city-owned and underutilized currently, there is little being generated in terms of revenue for local infrastructure and expenses right now. We have already undertaken extensive mitigation efforts, including structural and cleanup work at the Armory. By bringing residents, retailers, and visitors to the waterfront, the site will be a new source of revenue for the city- everything from retail taxes, payroll taxes generated by jobs created onsite, etc. Our plan will also be putting in streets and additional infrastructure so this is really an opportunity for all residents to gain by creating a vibrant and accessible new destination. Happy to talk about this further if you'd like! Feel free to reach out: info@nrwaterfront.com.

Lots of support for a bookstore - we couldn't agree more!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
We hope to see you at our programming this summer - starting on July 25 with our hosting the Lawnchair Theater! Stay tuned for more details.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
Yoga on the water sounds lovely!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
Thanks, Theresa!! We're excited to deliver what we aim to be a true public resource.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
Theresa, we're on it! Our first partnership activation with the New Rochelle Council on the Arts will be this summer - we're collaborating to host theater and music events through the summer, starting in July. And a wider partnership for installations at the completed project is a great idea.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
We love the idea of community-led arts classes. Let's add that to the list of ideas for the Armory!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
Pratt Landing is a public/private partnership, and we aim to create an asset for the entire city - we'd be happy to talk more about how you feel we can be supportive and meet the needs of our wider community!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
We think so too, Candice. At other Twining developments, including in Cambridge, we worked with local retailers to be sure they have the opportunity to succeed - and we look forward to doing the same at Pratt Landing.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
That's a great idea, Candice - Pratt Landing is well-positioned to learn from the lessons of the pandemic. People have definitely changed the way they work.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
We're hearing a lot of enthusiasm for ice cream - and we agree!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
Top of our list too, Jamby!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
While our site doesn't expand that far, we think there will be many exciting outdoor uses at Prat Landing!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
We'll be marketing the retail actively as the timeline progresses. But developing a list of targets early on like this can help guide leasing strategy and creation of marketing materials. You're right, we want to be top of mind for retailers as they shape their strategy for the coming years!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months ago
We agree, Caroline - Pratt Landing should be a resource for everyone!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
That's a great idea, Marisa - the art should absolutely be local and inclusive.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
Don and Jill, couldn’t agree more! The Armory has so much potential. Jill, I love your idea for partnerships - let’s talk more about that.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
Fun! We agree.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
Don, you can join us for concerts this August outside on the Armory lawn! Stay tuned for more info…
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
We’re getting a few of these great ideas going this summer with our Armory events series in partnership with the New Rochelle Arts Council! Stay tuned for more information…
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
Very cool. I’d love to learn more about the PAVE program!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
Sipping a handcrafted cocktail while sitting outdoors on Pratt Street sounds just wonderful!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
We couldn’t agree more, Tim, and are looking forward to bringing this to fruition!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
Great ideas!
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
Thanks, Marissa! We agree that the outdoor amenities at Pratt are particularly exciting.
Twining Properties commented on Pratt Landing 7 months, 1 week ago
Thanks, Brett! As a Navy Brat myself, doing justice to the Armory couldn't be more important to me, and to Twining. We're looking forward to hearing the community's ideas for the space.
