First Tenants Move In to Port Chester's The Mariner

The one, two and three bedroom rental building features water views, brand new appliances and many amenities.

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.

First couple to move in bring two children. If that is any indication, I guess that is going to blow the "predicted" number of kids to the school district out of the water. More taxes!!

For god's sake do some research, this is brand new construction not a renovated warehouse! This building replaced two single family homes and a number of businesses. Another brilliant move by our village goverment, when do we say no to any more residential housing until we clean up the illegal housing that is destroying our schools and quality of life.

"apartments are completely renovated" this is a brand new building . . . . poor reporting!

The village government will have looked quite brilliant for having been ready when PC's revival takes place (stay tuned). If I'm spending $3500 on a 3BR, my kids aren't going to Kennedy or Edison. I think there is more to be excited about here than to be nervous for. This article says that exactly the type of demographic that will be critical for the revival of PC is willing to move here. I think that's a good start.

(If I'm spending $3500 on a 3BR, my kids aren't going to Kennedy or Edison) MM11, If I spend that much for rent, then guess what, I couldn't afford to send them to private schools.

$3500? That's a mortgage payment and then some!

Thanks for pointing this out. I misunderstood the leasing agent's answer to my question about the building's history. The article has been corrected with a note.

MMI ... "The village government will have looked quite brilliant for having been ready when PC's revival takes place (stay tuned)." I agree. That's also why the revitalization has come in what seems like fits and starts. The Village is trying to rectify all of the housing abuses ... and at the same time sparkle the appeal of PC by highlighting what it has to offer now ... and down the line. Some of these tenants might very well be ahead of the curve. There's just too much circling PC for his village not to catch fire. There are gonna be some geniuses some day soon. Trust me.

It's too bad the pricing on this is ridiculous....

I don't know but it seems to me that this type of real estate like "The Mariner" is exactly what Port Chester needs !!! "Better" housing, restaurants, and entertainment is what will make PC a more desirable place to visit and even live.

I am a Byram resident who lives on the border on Byram and PC. I find the fact that this building's front door is in the back of the building a complete aberration. It's really bad urban planning (hello... we are trying to move to pedestrian-centered towns, not car worshiping strip malls), and it makes it seem like they are too good to have their front door face the fine town on Port Chester. I can't believe the town allowed this building plant as it is.
