Site D – 90 Valley

This site is located on lower Valley Street on the east side near the intersection with Wildey Street. It is situated adjacent to the tallest buildings in Sleepy Hollow, which are medium rise residential buildings (senior and affordable rentals) to the north, a large surface parking lot to the west, and the existing Salvation Army building to the south. The site is near the border with Tarrytown and in an area with high commercial use also. Reverend Sykes Park and playground is located diagonally across Valley Street. The Westchester Bee-line buses (routes 1 and 13) have their bus stops nearby. The Tarrytown train station is a 8 minute walk (.4 miles) from the site.

This site is currently owned by the Salvation Army. Previously it was the site of a car dealership, but it has been empty and vacant for at least the last six years.

Three groups imagined new uses for this space.

 

Group 6 (Sumi, Abigail & Eliza) envisioned an eco-friendly nature-inspired multi-use space with composting and other environmentally friendly features such as a garden. They envisioned a futuristic modern-inspired aesthetic emphasizing nature and green space. Hear about their design ideas and process below!

Group 10 (Galayna, Max & Liam) envisioned a public performance stage. Hear about their design in their own words below!

Group 11 (Catalina, Nico & Charlie) designed a green area and park space with features such as a mural wall with bulletin board, amphitheater and planted trees. Learn more about their vision for the space in the video below!
