Historic Tarrytown Station Building Offered For Lease




The station, which just underwent a $45 million rehabilitation, is located in a rapidly developing area of Tarrytown across from the newly constructed Village Hall, near Hudson Harbor, a new commercial and residential development on the river side of the tracks, and a short walk from the vibrant downtown anchored by the Music Hall and the many popular dining establishments that surround it.

The building is a gem that has been in continuous use since it was built in 1890 by the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad. It received a new slate roof, gutters, and canopy supports. Three dormer windows that had been sliced off decades ago during a prior roof job were reconstructed and now the afternoon sunlight brightens the waiting room with its terracotta tile floor and oak benches. Outside in front, the roof overhang on the eastern façade, which had been truncated to accommodate the height of buses at the curb, was restored to its original dimensions and the sidewalk was widened.

The one-story, masonry building, which was designed by Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge and constructed in 1890, has 3,300 square feet on the ground floor and a 520-square-foot-loft.

Tarrytown, the second busiest station on the Hudson Line after Croton-Harmon, also got new platforms, new overpasses, new stairways, new shelters and new elevators.

Metro-North will reserve exclusive use of the ticket office, as well as nonexclusive use of a public waiting area and public restrooms. Depending upon the requirements of the lessee, the public areas may be either incorporated into or segregated from the proposed commercial use.

The lessee will be required to provide morning coffee service on business days from 6:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., at a minimum.

The suggested rent is $50,000 a year with annual increases of 3%.
