MTA Metro-North Railroad is seeking tenants for four 19th-century station buildings it owns, in Port Chester, Peekskill, Ossining, and Tarrytown, NY. Metro-North will reserve non-exclusive use of a portion of each building, including a waiting room, bathrooms, and access to platforms.
Because the buildings may require capital improvements, Metro-North may, in the course of negotiating terms of the leases, agree to help defray the tenant’s cost, if any, of installing utilities or other building upgrades.
Peekskill Station dates from 1874, with a view of the Hudson River and an adjacent outdoor plaza. The Port Chester Station, on the New Haven Line, was built in 1890 and stands in what is now a highly visible downtown location with major retailers. Ossining Station, built in 1910, is walking distance from the Haverstraw-Ossining Ferry landing. The recently renovated Tarrytown Station, the second busiest on the Hudson Line, opened in 1890 in a location now undergoing rapid development.
The requests for proposals are available here. Proposals are due Aug. 5.
