Rising Development – Yonkers, LLC has been committed to the redevelopment of downtown Yonkers and the birth of a true go-to city-center ever since its principal Nick Sprayregen first heard in 2006 about the promise of the daylighting of the Saw Mill River. Even at that time, Mr. Sprayregen was able to appreciate the important steps that had already been undertaken by both the private and public sectors in bringing about the beginning chapter of the turnaround of the downtown.
The eventual creation of Van Der Donck park on what had been for almost a century a municipal parking lot named Larkin Plaza, combined with the much-needed rezoning of the downtown then laid the groundwork for Mr. Sprayregen, along with other developers, to continue the revitalization efforts.
At this time, Rising Development is proud to be moving forward with its two major redevelopment projects – the rehabilitation of its Mill Street and Main Street properties as well as a new mixed-use development on its main assemblage overlooking the Van Der Donck park. These combined efforts will help contribute to a vibrant, vital engaging 21st Century transit-oriented downtown – SOYO.
