Monsey - New townhouses?

TJN: The very real sounds of revitalization may soon be heard throughout the village's downtown. Alan Gestetner, president of Monsey-based Cole Development Corp., who has proposed building a three-story structure with 62 townhouses and a community center at North Main Street and Maple Avenue, said he plans to start demolition in the summer. "No later than August," he said yesterday. The village board, which approved the $15 million housing development as part of its overall urban renewal effort, agreed last week to transfer a former bathhouse on Maple Avenue to Cole to be demolished, The four-bedroom townhouses are expected to cost $300,000 to $350,000 each. The proposal also includes a 7,000-square-foot commercial component and feature two horseshoe-shaped buildings facing Memorial Park. The entrance would be on Lawler Boulevard. Gestetner has vowed to provide space for Little Angels Day Care Center, which operates on the site, either at the new development or elsewhere in the village. "We're definitely going to hold them to that promise," said Mercy Anim, the day care's director........
