Developer Wilder Balter Partners is proposing a 79-home project on a site near Bedford Village’s downtown, a location that Rippowam Cisqua previously sought to use for a high school.
The project, which carries the working title “Bedford Farm,” calls for using the northern portion of a 113-acre site, which is bounded by Old Post Road (Route 22) to the north, Crusher Road to the west, Vinton Avenue to the east and the Mianus River to the south.
Seventy of the homes would be “age-targeted” and consist of single-family and two-unit structures. Nine of the units would be affordable homes and be located across the developed portion of the site.
Additionally, the project calls for a four-acre farm, which would be used for growing produce that residents and local restaurants could use. A full-time farmer would work and live at the site.
Other amenities include a gazebos and a 5,000-square-foot clubhouse containing a gym, potentially a pool, a catering kitchen, a billiards room and a personal-training space.
