Harrison apartments will have shuttle to Metro-North, plenty of amenities

A five-story, 200-unit apartment development in Harrison will have studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments.

On 10 acres at 1 Webb Ave., the apartments will be close to interstates 287 and 95, the Hutchinson River Parkway, as well as have proximity to White Plains and its corporate-offices “platinum mile.” There will be shuttle service to Rye’s Metro-North commuter train station, according to a news release that announced Monday’s groundbreaking for the building.

Two landscaped courtyards will have grill and lounge areas, a heated pool, and fire pits. Five of the acres will be open space, including a walking trail system open to the public, a dog park and a community garden.
