Located on the 114-acre site of the former Reader’s Digest headquarters, Chappaqua Crossing has been transformed into a mixed-use community with office, retail, cultural and residential uses located in walkable proximity to one another. New buildings relate directly to the Georgian style of the original Reader’s Digest Cupola Building, while the new streetscape and plantings complement the mature landscapes of the existing campus. The redevelopment program consists of the adaptive re-use of 500,000 square feet of existing office buildings into 64 rental apartments and renovated office space, 120,000 square feet of retail anchored by a Whole Foods Market and a LifeTime Fitness facility, and 111 attached townhomes and the Chappaqua Performing Arts Center within the site’s East Village.
DTS has provided planning, engineering, landscape architectural and approval services for the project since the site’s acquisition by Summit/Greenfield Partners in 2004. Land use approvals have included environmental impact statements, zoning amendments, special permits, subdivisions, site plan approvals and environmental permits. DTS has coordinated closely with the Town of New Castle, local utility providers, and state and New York City agencies to upgrade and supplement existing site utility and stormwater systems to meet current regulations and project requirements.
DTS’s continuing services for Chappaqua Crossing include the coordination of site plan approval and associated permitting for the East Village townhomes, which are to be constructed by Toll Brothers. For more on Chappaqua Crossing, click here.
