NEW ROCHELLE – Heritage Homes Developer MacQuesten Development, in partnership with the City of New Rochelle, broke ground on the $1.1 million Heritage Park, the new playground and park coming to the Lincoln Avenue area. 

As part of the adjacent 288-unit affordable housing complex Heritage Homes, residents of the community will have easy access to a range of modern outdoor amenities including a new playground, basketball court, lawn area, seating, lighting and more. 

Heritage Park is the first project to break ground as part of the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative grant from the state that was awarded to the city in 2018. 

New Rochelle’s grant supports projects directed at reviving the city’s downtown corridor to serve as a catalyst for community activity and engagement as well as economic investment. 

“As New Rochelle makes historic investments in the Lincoln Avenue corridor through the DRI, we are committed to working in partnership with residents to ensure that new amenities reflect community needs and goals,” said Mayor Noam Bramson. “Heritage Park, which will provide children and families with a safe and attractive place to play and enjoy the outdoors, is an outstanding example of this principle.”
