The Ritz-Carlton Westchester and The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton Westchester





Louis Cappelli announced today The Ritz-Carlton will operate and manage the hotel and condominium complex the Super Developer is building at 221 Main Street in White Plains. Not only will The Ritz operate the hotel, but it will also manage one of the 40 story condominium complex soaring above the hotel located between Main Street and Hamilton Avenues in White Plains. The make-up of the residential second tower planned in the complex, according to a Cappelli spokesperson, is still to be determined and will not at this time be managed by The Ritz Carlton. Bruce Berg, speaking to WPCNR Tuesday evening said that it was likely The Ritz would, though, be managing the second tower.

Ritz Rajah Speaks.
“I believe Westchester is an important location to enhance the portfolio of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company,” said Simon F. Cooper, president and chief operating officer. “Many Fortune 500 companies have a presence in the region, and it is a very attractive place to live for affluent consumers who enjoy the proximity to Manhattan in an exclusive suburban setting,” he added.
“We spent a great deal of time evaluating the options for this site. The Ritz-Carlton brand truly stands alone; it is associated worldwide with the finest reputation for luxury hotels and residences,” said Louis R. Cappelli. The five star luxury lifestyle, level of design, amenities, and services we will offer hotel guests and condominium owners is unprecedented in any Manhattan suburb.”

Delfino, Spano Awed: "Going Downtown" Now Means Going to White Plains.
White Plains Mayor Joseph Delfino stated, “The arrival of Westchester’s first luxury hotel in White Plains is another significant sign of the City’s continuing resurgence, economic strength and prestige. The project will generate approximately 1,000 construction jobs and more than 150 permanent jobs. The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester will help attract visitors from across the country to White Plains.”

Speaking to WPCNR Tuesday evening, Mayor Delfino said "The signing of The Ritz-Carlton is truly prestigious for White Plains and it compliments all we've done." Westchester County Executive Andrew Spano noted, “The new concept of ‘going downtown’ means going to White Plains, not Manhattan. The fact that The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has chosen White Plains for their first suburban location further validates the growing importance of White Plains and Westchester County as among the most prestigious locations in the Northeast.”

“The opportunity for condominium owners to access facilities of The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester while enjoying their own private and abundant amenities is truly unique in Westchester County,” said Adrienne Albert, President of The Marketing Directors, Inc., the exclusive selling agent of the residences. “The combination of the Ritz-Carlton Brand and Louis Cappelli’s exciting and unique building design will offer hotel guests and condominium purchasers the luxury and quality product not found anywhere in the region”.

When Louis Cappelli first started talking bringing in a hotel for White Plains, he had The Ritz-Carlton in mind, and now his original choice has joined forces with him. During approvals for the project, Mr. Cappelli showed the Common Council a letter from Ritz-Carlton expressing serious interest in the project. Mr. Cappelli's first choice has now come aboard. Bruce Berg said Mr.Cappelli personally had traveled to Maryland to convince Ritz-Carlton's Mr. Cooper that the 221 Main Street complex was right for The Ritz. Mr. Berg said the two chief executives got along very well and Mr. Cappelli's personal touch brought Ritz-Carlton into the 221 project.

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. of Chevy Chase, Md., (USA) currently operates 61 hotels in the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Over 20 projects are under development around the globe with hotel openings planned for Moscow, Ireland, and two in Beijing over the next year. The Ritz-Carlton is the only service company to have twice earned the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, which recognizes outstanding customer service.

Cappelli Enterprises is an acknowledged leader in creating and building major innovative mixed-use redevelopment projects in White Plains including the highly successful City Center, Trump Tower, One City Place and The Lofts at City Center. The company has redevelopment projects that are reshaping other downtown areas across Westchester and Fairfield Counties.

White Plains joins the prestigious list of newly announced Ritz-Carlton locations, which include Shanghai, The Bahamas, Costa Del Sol and Doha.
The Ritz-Carlton commitment to White Plains, beats Hilton Hotels to the White Plains downtown, while preventing Starwood Hotels from securing a base in downtown White Plains where Starwood has its world headquarters.

Hilton Hotels had been spoken of as having been looking at land beside the Metro North railroad off Bank Street, but a spokesperson for Hilton Hotels told WPCNR that it is Hilton's policy to not speak of locations under consideration. The spokesman last week would neither confirm that Hilton was eyeing White Plains or was not considering sites within the city. Hilton already runs the Rye Town Hilton adjacent to White Plains.

Originally a Hilton spokesman first told WPCNR Hilton had been looking at the Bank Street property, but was no longer interested. Then a spokesman called WPCNR back to say Hilton's policy was not to comment until a signing has been made, indicating that Hilton is not necessarily out of the White Plains market, and could be still in the hunt for hotel property in White Plains. He indicated Hilton always took a careful look to assure they do not cannibalize existing Hiltons in any one area. Hilton runs both the Rye Town Hilton and a Hilton in Tarrytown.

The Pinnacle Tower developer, Ginsberg Development Corporation, has filed an amended site plan to increase the number of condominium units from 139 to 171, and increase the height of its Tower 66 feet. The amendment was filed May 24, and the Common Council members received it Thursday evening.

The developer asks to pay a fee-in-lieu of for the 2 addtional units of affordable housing they are required to provide with the addtional 32 condo units. The height of the building moves up from 23 stories to 28 stories, plus a copper-clad pinnacled standing 66 feet in height according to Common Council documents, which brings the top of the Pinnacle even with One City Center at 340 feet, and only slightly below the Trump Tower on the Martine side of the City Place. Cappelli Enterprises which fought The Pinnacle original request for height of 28 stories, did not return a call for comment.

There are at least six new towers planned for downtown White Plains, plus a massive redevelopment of the train station (including a new train station and multiple additional towers).

One of the developments is a twin-towered rental complex about to break ground next to the existing train station.

Another development is a two-tower condo complex with a huge retail base, on the site of the existing Westchester Pavillion. Will be more than 600 apartments and hundreds of thousands of square feet of retail.

There's a third twin-towered complex in planning, but I forget the specifics. It will be somewhere off Main Street on the site of existing parking.

But the train station development is the biggie. No details yet, but a RFP is out, and there will be a development plan selected this fall.

For what it's worth, MTA is hiring a Senior Real Estate Manager and an Associate Counsel or Deputy Counsel for real estate. Perhaps MTA is staffing up in anticipation of this development.
