Dobbs Ferry Walgreens Clears Final Hurdle

Dobbs Ferry Walgreens

At Tuesday nights Architectural and Historic Review Board meeting, the latest iteration of the new Walgreens building on Ashford Avenue was approved by a 4 – 1 vote. Occupying the spot of the former Brothers Market, G & L Deli and Off Broadway Restaurant, this caps a number of AHRB meetings where the scale of the building was changed from one story to two story to match the required village code for the Gateway Zone and the overall character of the building was substantially modified. What started out as more of a signature Walgreens, big box building, that one might see in the vicinity of the Central Avenue shopping corridor, was modified by the developers architects, in response to a variety of AHRB concerns, to graciously reflect both what is currently there now and also to incorporate what the AHRB expects to be a precedent for inclusion in other future Gateway buildings.
The overall look is meant to resemble several individual, articulated storefronts with fabric awnings and signage, much in the way storefronts in buildings on Cedar Street and Main Street are now articulated. In this case however it just so happens that the entire first floor is to be occupied by a single tenant. This matches the expectations of the recently adopted Dobbs Ferry Vision Plan. Materials consistent with the dominant buildings of the Gateway neighborhood have also been incorporated into the design, most notably a dark, somewhat more traditional looking brick. A substantial re-landscaping plan is also to be implemented for the parking lot areas, adjacent to the residential neighborhood.
While opinions may vary with respect to the benefits of the eventual tenant, it is clear that this new building has the potential to be a great new neighbor to the other buildings in the Gateway, both present and future and also to the existing character of the village of Dobbs Ferry as a whole.

Dobbs Ferry Walgreens Site Plan Approved


The Dobbs Ferry Planning Board, by a 3-1-1 vote, approved the site plan for the proposed Walgreens to be located in the Gateway zone on Ashford Avenue during this past Thursdays meeting. During the public hearing portion of this application the board heard from residents who had concerns about traffic patterns that would be created or exacerbated due to the results of this proposal. One resident noted that all traffic leaving the site and wishing to head back east towards Ardsley will be required to drive thru local residential streets, such as Maple Street, Storm Street or Washington Avenue as opposed to using the main arterial road of Ashford Avenue. This is because no left turns will be allowed on to Ashford or Broadway from the site and thus there is no other way for vehicular traffic to travel east on Ashford. The planning board, rather than doing any planning, chose to ignore this unique opportunity to correct, what the board noted to be an existing problem and instead simply approved a project which, according to even the projects own traffic engineers, will cause an increase in traffic at that intersection to the extent of 25 cars per hour, at its peak.
Three more village boards will need to weigh in on this application in order for it to move forward. The Zoning Board, The Architectural Review Board and probably most importantly, The Board of Trustees. The Zoning Board meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month, the Architectural Review Board meets the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month and the Board of Trustees meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.
