We advised RXR on the financing
Davis Polk advised affiliates of RXR Realty LLC in obtaining financing for the prior acquisition of a 3.71-acre parcel of land at 5 Cottage Place and 25 Cottage Place, White Plains, New York, and to construct Phase I of the Hamilton Green project, consisting of one 12-story and one 25-story multifamily building totaling approximately 429,300 net rentable square feet of residential space, 26,565 net rentable square feet of retail space and approximately 510 subterranean parking spaces.
Hamilton Green is a $650 million project to transform the site of the former White Plains Mall into a mixed-use, transit-oriented development. Situated two blocks from the newly renovated White Plains Metro North Train Station and one block from the White Plains central business district, the state-of-the-art residential project will replace the shuttered White Plains Mall with new mixed-income multifamily buildings, which will be composed of market rate and affordable rental units, live/work units and accessible open space, as well as a variety of dining, retail and commercial spaces. Exclusive amenities for all residents will include 24-hour concierge services, resident lounges, co-working spaces, a pool, game rooms, fitness studios, expansive outdoor terraces and a shared public plaza. Phase I of the project is slated for completion in the fall of 2025.
