Taylor Palmer, a partner in the Firm’s Land Use, Zoning & Development and Energy & Environmental groups, assisted developer Rodney Weber and Scenic Beacon Developments, LLC, break ground on the Edgewater project—a $50 million multi-family residential housing development on the waterfront in the City of Beacon—the largest residential rental project in Beacon in decades.

The 246-unit multi-family rental development includes 25 affordable-workforce housing units and the development will include a mix of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units. The development is located on a 12-acre waterfront site within walking distance of the Metro-North Train Station, with easy access to major highways, retail, and dining and entertainment venues along the City’s Main Street.

The energy-efficient development overlooking the Hudson River works to address housing needs in the Hudson Valley and in the City of Beacon. The construction of this development comes at a critical time when Beacon and other local communities across New York are experiencing a crisis of housing availability and affordability.

Scenic Beacon Developments, LLC, The Community Preservation Corporation, the City’s Planning Board, City Council and Zoning Board of Appeals, Salisbury Bank and Trust, Orange Bank and Trust, and other development partners and supporters all played an important role in breaking ground on the Edgewater project.
