Excessive Heat WARNING in effect for:
Former United Hospital expected to be renovated in Port ChesterPosted: Updated:
Plans are in place to renovate a building that was formally a hospital in Port Chester.
The building on Boston Post Road that was once United Hospital closed back in 2005. Since closing, many say it has become an eyesore.
The new owners, Rose Associates and BedRock Real Estate, are looking to transform the property into a mixed-use development that includes new apartments and retail space.
In a statement, Chuck Berman from BedRock Real Estate said, “We look forward to meeting a market need for housing while layering in amenities and services that will be attractive to area residents.”
The abandoned property proved to be a safety hazard.
Two years ago, a teenage boy fell through the roof and down an elevator shaft, where he later died.
The mayor of Port Chester is expected to put together a team soon to further discuss plans for the site with the owners.
