Overhaul Planned for Mount Kisco Building

A makeover for a commercial building on Lexington Avenue is being proposed. It will include a change in parking and a remodeling of the front.

A remodeling of a commercial building on Mount Kisco's Lexington Avenue corridor is being proposed.

The proposal calls for the structure, at 350 Lexington Ave., to get a new facade. It also details plans for a new lobby in the building's center, including a stairway and passenger elevator, site co-owner Steven Giner said.

Giner described the proposed rehabilitation of the building as to "make it more usable for current and future tenants, and to make it more aesthetically pleasing."

Renderings show that the facade, which now has a brown color with brick siding, has a gray color with red awnings. 

Additionally, the plan calls for reducing the number of parking spaces on site from 81 to 61. The curent number of spots does not comply with current code but is grandfathered in. The change will also allow for more green space.

The proposal has been brought before the Mount Kisco Planning Board, which is reviewing its site plan and would need to give approval in order for the project to move forward.

The board discussed the proposal at its Feb. 13 meeting. Questions included whether the parking spaces count as long-term or short-term spaces, due to the fact that the village code has varying minimum widths; the applicant calls for 9-feet-wide spaces, which would be long-term, but a village engineer believes that the spaces are more like short-term ones.

Other questions that arose at the board meeting had to do with lighting, snow removal and screening. The project is in a conceptual phase before the board, and is expected to make a return. No definite meeting date was given at the end of the meeting.

Businesses that currently occupy the property include the Tano handbag business and Westchester Dance Academy, Giner said.
