Ritz-Carlton: From Vacant Lot to Luxury Tower

Cappelli Enterprises
White Plains, NY​

Bringing the vision to life. The City of White Plains has endured cycles of real estate boom and bust, and the early-1990s recession left troubling commercial and retail vacancy rates downtown. After VHB updated the city’s Comprehensive Plan, we put the plan into practice by helping Cappelli Enterprises redevelop the former Macy’s site and surrounding urban renewal properties into an $850 million mixed-use complex and then transform a vacant parking lot and surrounding properties into a luxury Ritz-Carlton hotel and residential towers. Through these and other projects, downtown White Plains is again thriving as the commercial heart of Westchester County.
