Developers of three residential projects in White Plains were joined by Mayor Thomas Roach and business owners in the city at an opening ceremony this month for La Gianna, a 56-unit luxury apartment complex at 10 DeKalb Ave.

The $19 million development is the first in Westchester marketed and managed by Vibe Living, a brand of The Daten Group of New York City, a joint-venture partner of White Plains-based Lighthouse Enterprises LLC. The companies have partnered on the completed La Gianna, The Dylan, under construction at 42 Waller Ave., and The Reed, rising at 115 N. Broadway. The three projects will add 103 high-end apartments to the city’s rental inventory.
In collaboration with ArtsWestchester, Vibe Living will provide space throughout La Gianna’s amenity areas for a four-month exhibition of the works of four artists associated with the White Plains-based arts nonprofit — Susan Manspeizer, Kiyoshi Otsuka, Jerome Harris Parmet and Joyce Wenglowski.
Michelle Coletti, associate broker at Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty and marketing coordinator at La Gianna, in a press release called the collaboration “a win-win for Vibe Living and the arts community.” She said La Gianna will hold events that will bring the public into the building to view the exhibition.
Vibe Living’s other two buildings are scheduled to open by February, according to a company spokesperson. Information on the buildings can be found at Vibe Living’s website at vibeliving.com.
