Pennington Lots Subdivision Secures Financing For Infrastructure And Model Homes

Pennington LotsNanuet-based Pennington Lots LLC has secured two rounds of financing for its 16 lot residential subdivision at 120-150 McNamara Road and 5 Pennington Way in Spring Valley. The first round at $4,625,500 will finance the infrastructure and site improvements at the subdivision. The second round at $3,402,000 will finance the construction of the first four homes, two of which will be model homes.

Pennington also mortgaged its interest in the property through a land loan for an additional $1,847,500, making the entire debt package worth $9,902,000.

The lender was White Plains, NY-based Northeast Community Bank.

Pennington Lots, LLC acquired the parcels on McNamara Road and Pennington Way in 2023 for $3.695 million.

To enable the development, the Village of New Hempstead approved an Optimized Single Family Cluster Zone, overriding issues raised by the Rockland County Department of Planning as part of the GML review.

The project was subject to more almost three years of review from its inception until it secured the financing to break ground.

Ultimately, the Village of New Hempstead found the impacts of the additional single-family homes were beneficial because the project would preserve 4.28 acres of open space; leave approximately 6.3 acres of the site undisturbed; preserve steep slopes and wetlands on the property; connect two neighborhoods by creating a pedestrian path; address a pre-existing flooding issue in the area, and otherwise preserve the single-family character of New Hempstead.

The County Planning Department sought to reduce the number of houses down to ten, and to require the developer to take active steps to preserve the wetlands on the site.
