Southern Land Breaks Ground at Y Site in White Plains

With the old YMCA building at 250 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains torn down, a groundbreaking ceremony was held June 23 to kick off construction on a new 177-unit eight-story apartment building to be called the Juliette. The developer is Southern Land Company, headquartered in Nashville. Tim Downey, Southern Land’s founder and CEO, told the Business Journal that he expects that the first tenants will be able to move into the Juliette in just under two years.

“We develop a lot of master planned communities and apartment buildings. We do a lot of commercial but everything we do has some sort of a residential base to it,” Downey said. “What makes us different is we’re very design focused and very entertainment focused. We want all of our residents to have fun where they live every day and so we have lots of programming and free snacks … and we like to think we really take good care of our residents. We have a long-term view on our investments and we’re happy to spend some of the money on our residents.”
