On March 27, 2015, the City of Mount Vernon held a groundbreaking ceremony for its latest TOD project, an 11-story, mixed use, affordable housing development being constructed by MacQuesten Development LLC and New York State Homes and Community Renewal. The Modern will include 80 affordable rental apartments and approximately 9,400 square feet of commercial space on the first two floors. It is being constructed on an underutilized former industrial lot at 130 Mt. Vernon Avenue that is one block from the Mount Vernon West Metro-North Station.
