The Battle of Ridge Hill - Part I
The Ridge Hill project has been in the news for years now and plans for the massive retail and residential complex have continued to change. In Part I of The Battle of Ridge Hill, News 12 Westchester lays out what Ridge Hill Village would actually entail if developed. Forest City Ratner is planning to build 1.3 million square feet of retail and entertainment at the 81-acre site located off the New York State Thruway. The plan includes restaurants and movie theatres, 160,000 square feet of office space, a 175-room hotel with a conference center and 1,000 residential units to rent or buy. Yonkers Mayor Phil Amicone is fighting hard to make the project a reality. However, Yonkers City Councilwoman Dee Barbato, who represents the district that would house Ridge Hill, says the project is simply too big and she is opposed to the development as it stands now. News 12 Westchester will hold a special town meeting Wednesday, March 8 at the Royal Regency Hotel on Tuckahoe Road in Yonkers. Anyone wishing to participate should arrive by 7:15 p.m. The live show will start at 8 p.m.
