It’s been a hotly debated, discussed and litigated site for years, but now a developer has been announced for the vacant General Motors property along the Hudson River in Sleepy Hollow.
Here’s what the village of Sleepy Hollow posted on its website under the headline banner ‘breaking news’:
“At Tuesday night’s Board meeting Mayor Ken Wray announced that: ‘General Motors has reached an agreement with a developer to move forward on the former GM factory site here is Sleepy Hollow. The developer is a partnership of Diversified Realty Advisors, a New Jersey – based, east coast real estate company and SunCal, a California-based real estate developer with a nationwide portfolio. We look forward to working closely with them in the coming months.’”
And here is a Jan. 9 report by The Journal News reporter Ernie Garcia on the 96-acre property’s history and the plans for development, which include 1 ,177 residences, 35,000 square feet of office space, 135,000 square feet of retail and a 140-room hotel.
