NEW YORK –
RXR Realty, one of the largest real estate owners, managers and developers in the New York tri-state area, in partnership with ABS Realty and Brause Realty, is pleased to announce the leasing success of its Ori units within New Rochelle’s 360 Huguenot.
As a provider of multifunctional smart space solutions, Ori enables developers to build better-performing, more sustainable and more affordable products for their residents while at the same time, enabling them to experience a better quality of life at home. 360 Huguenot offers both the award-winning Pocket Closet and Studio Suite, which provide residents with the ability to effortlessly change their studio or one-bedroom to feel and function like a larger apartment. Tenants have the ability to conceal the bed during the workday, reveal a home office on demand, or easily divide the space at the touch of a button, a tap of a mobile app, or by voice command.
The ten apartments containing Ori products were leased and occupied within two months. RXR Realty is among the first developers to offer this type of space saving design within a new residential development in Westchester County.
“As developers, we continuously look to innovate and offer our residents the best possible experience,” said Joanne Minieri, RXR’s Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Development & Construction. “The space transformation provided by Ori’s products represents an exciting new dimension in urban living.”
“The idea of home has taken on a whole new meaning,” stated Heather Moore, Managing Director of Greystar, which manages the building. “And the flexibility and convenience provided by Ori spaces means that residents get many of the benefits of living in a larger space without the added cost. This truly sets RXR’s 360 Huguenot apart from other projects on the market.”
Located just north of New York City, 360 Huguenot is a 28-story apartment building featuring 280 rentals in total. The building opened in 2019 and was the first high-rise development to hit the market consistent with New Rochelle’s 2015 Downtown Rezoning – a rezoning covering approximately 274-acres that was developed by the City, working in collaboration with RXR as Master Developer.
Ori was founded in 2015 by CEO Hasier Larrea and a team of MIT researchers, who set out to create interiors that maximize the potential of usable space, accommodating a broader spectrum of activities and settings within apartments, all in the same footprint. Ori spaces are now available or coming soon to more than 50 projects in more than 30 cities across the US.
“As residents continue to demand more flexibility from their space, developers like RXR Realty are responding to this new reality through products such as ours,” Larrea said. “Most of the world's interior spaces contain traditional, static furnishings, forcing people to compromise on their living experience. Our products challenge the status quo and allow residents to live large in small spaces.
Larrea continued, “Always on the cutting-edge of development demands and trends, RXR understood this concept and partnered with us to provide select 360 Huguenot residents the elevated lifestyle they were seeking.”
The upscale living experience at 360 Huguenot is enhanced by a list of amenities, including a 24-hour attended lobby with fireplace, an outdoor terrace with grills and green space, a private dining lounge, a conference room, a game room with billiards, an expansive indoor/outdoor yoga studio and fitness center with Peloton bikes, a pet spa, electric car charging stations, on-site valet parking and bicycle storage. 360 Huguenot is located within a five-minute walk of the New Rochelle train station, which is serviced by Amtrak and MetroNorth and offers a convenient 28-minute commute to Grand Central Terminal.
