The Trolley Barn building, previously converted to loft residential-live-work units, is a National Register of Historic Places site. The new 412 units are proposed to be contained in a 25 story residential building.
The other significant element of the development is the proposed dismantling of the Teutonia Hall façade, a building of local historic interest, and the placement of the façade elsewhere on the site.
Additionally the project includes the rehabilitation of two frame dwellings on the east side of Buena Vista Avenue into multi-family structures. These dwellings are proposed for historic preservation quality rehabilitation.
Other factors in the project include the brown field clean up of the site.
The project is located at 92 Main Street, 41 - 65 and 66 - 72 Buena Vista Avenue in the City of Yonkers, New York.
