An Elmsford-based company that owns and operates a senior living community in Peekskill plans to build a similar facility on a 2-acre parcel on Route 202.

Trinity Associates LLC wants to develop a 52-unit independent senior living facility on the property at 1847 Crompond Road. The parcel, which is now occupied by the Christopher Columbus Society of Peekskill building, is less than a half-mile from NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital in Cortlandt.

The company’s development plans call for a five-story structure with 16 one-bedroom and 36 two-bedroom affordable apartment for senior residents. The development would be available to tenants 62 years old or older with incomes falling below $44,400 for a single person and $50,760 for two people.

The apartments would be 700 to 800 square feet and feature full kitchens and offer a variety of amenities. The facility would also provide cleaning and home care services if needed, though no medical services would be provided by Trinity Associates.
The development would also include a community room for residents, an exercise room, laundry facilities and a management office.

Trinity Associates is the contract vendee for the property, which is owned by the Christopher Columbus Society. As part of the development plans, the company plans to demolish the building, a facility used primarily for meetings and membership events that is also rented out for parties.

The developer specializes in affordable housing projects and also operates Drum Hill Senior Living, the 120-unit senior living facility at 90 Ringgold St. in Peekskill. Opened in 1999, Trinity converted what was a historic schoolhouse that was vacant for more than 15 years into the independent living community.
Elsewhere in Westchester, the developer built 12 affordable condominiums in the former Ossining National Bank on Main Street. Trinity Associates also developed the Homes at Delia Court near Nepera Park in Yonkers and Horton’s Mill Village in White Plains.

Trinity Associates first approached the city of Peekskill with its plans to develop the Crompond Road facility in 2016.

In order for the project to move forward, Trinity Associates would need to be granted a special permit by the city to allow for the senior living facility. In March, the Peekskill Planning Commission forwarded a positive recommendation to the Common Council regarding the permit. The city plans to hold a public hearing on the issue on May 8.
