Brooklyn's Ridge Hill commercial development project gets started

Mixed-use project includes retail, office and residential spaces

Forest City Ratner's plans for Ridge Hill also feature a dynamic streetscape along its main strip, with extensive show windows, landscaping and abundant trees, as well as a distinctive Town Square at its center. The architectural responsibilities are being shared between Studio 5 Partnership as the working-drawing architect, and H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture L.L.C. as the design architect.

"This development represents a major investment in the county, which is yet another sign of Westchester's strong economic base, and emphasizes the tremendous confidence the business community has in the City of Yonkers," County Executive Andrew Spano said. Spano went on to describe the development as part of the Renaissance of Yonkers.
