YONKERS -

Developers broke ground Tuesday on a massive residential complex on Alexander Street in Yonkers.

The five-story, 251-unit AvalonBay Yonkers facility includes a waterfront walk with views of the Hudson River.

Mayor Mike Spano says it's part of the revitalization of Westchester County's largest city.

"Yonkers is on the bubble," Spano says. "People want to invest here, and they want to move here."

The complex will open in summer 2019.
