The Mariner, five-story building on the bank of Port Chester’s Byram River is now open as the city's newest luxury rental apartment building.
The leasing office officially opened on Oct. 15 and The Mariner’s first tenants, Rye natives and recent New York City residents, have already started to move in.
“We have had a lot of interest already,” said Nancy Rossi, Leasing Manager for The Mariner. Mostly young couples and empty nesters have inquired about apartments, but the first tenants to move in are a couple with two children and a single man. Most interested renters are from the towns in New York and Connecticut that surround Port Chester, or are people from the area who have been living in the city and are looking to come back, Rossi said.
Rossi emphasized the Mariner’s prime location in downtown Port Chester, a few blocks away from the train station, Wetchester’s premier eateries like Tarry Lodge, The Willet House and BarTaco. The AMC Movie Theater and shopping complex is a couple of blocks away as well.
"I came here a lot and it was a coincidence I knew about building," said Gary Wagner, a 55-year-old former Croton-on-Hudson resident who moved into a one bedroom apartment with river views at The Mariner last Friday. Wagner has been frequenting the restaurants mentioned above for years and when he found out the Mariner was a rental it was the perfect fit for him.
"I like the idea it has a gym and the rooftop garden is awesome. It feels like youre in a hotel and it is really good construction," Wagner said.
The luxury building features one, two and three bedroom apartments that include brand new appliances and fixtures. The white oak floors, nine-foot high ceilings, large windows and light grey color scheme in the kitchens give the building a very open, airy and fresh feel.
The building’s architects, Sullivan Architectural Group, incorporated elements like rounded windows in the hallways to give the building a maritime feel. Rose Associates is the exclusive leasing agent for the building.
The building also boasts several amenities including a roof top terrace, gym, social room, 22 on-site boat slips and parking. Amenity fees are waived for all tenants for the first year.
One bedrooms start at $1995, one bedrooms with a den start at $2450, two bedrooms at $2600 and three bedrooms at $3550.
