A defunct movie theater in Westchester will soon be revitalized by three dozen luxury apartments, a cafe and several refurbished stores.

Developers have broken ground at the Harrison Playhouse Lofts in downtown Harrison, which is an adaptive reuse of the old Harrison movie theater that has been closed for over a dozen years.

The project is a mixed-use, transit-oriented development that will add 36 luxury rental units as well as a new street-level café on Purdy Street and refurbished stores on Harrison Avenue.

Officials said the project was designed by Stephen Tilly Architects, who are “known for their ‘green building’ projects and historical restoration work.

The HarrisonPlayhouse Lofts will incorporate several environmentally sustainable design elements to be one of the first Westchester County buildings to satisfy the FitWel standard, the world's leading healthy building certification.”

The project will be built by Murphy Brothers Contracting of Mamaroneck who have built several high-end, boutique residential projects in Sound Shore, as well as several luxury homes in Westchester and Fairfield counties. Sterling National Bank will provide the financing for this exciting, transit-oriented development.

In a statement in front of area officials, developer John Verni said that “the Verni brothers look forward to jump-starting the rebirth of downtown Harrison as the next great destination in Westchester County.”
