Somers Crossing is a multi-family residential and retail project in Somers, NY
The recently approved (June 2016) new floating zone is proposed to provide a new housing type as well as a neighborhood grocery store in the downtown hamlet area adjacent to an existing neighborhood shopping center and the Somers historic district.
The ±26-acre Site is located at the intersection of Route 202 and Route 100. JMC prepared the Final Environmental Impact Statement (adopted in April 2016) which addressed all comments from the Town Board, Planning Board, involved and interested agencies as well as the public, and integrated requested revisions into the revised Concept Plan for the project.
JMC worked with the Town and consultant team to subsequently prepare the SEQR Findings Statement, which was followed by adoption of the new floating zone and application of the MFR-DH floating zone to the Somers Crossing Site.
The Somers Crossing development includes 66 multi-family residential units accessed from Route 100, and a new neighborhood grocery store (19,000 sf) accessed from Route 202, directly opposite the Heritage Hills entry drive. The plan also includes preservation of over 10-acres of the Site, including portions of a NYSDEC wetland, in permanent open space in the Somers Hamlet.
