What's Going on at the Ritz?

This week we received a few inquiries from readers about local properties and scouted around to find the answers. First a reader asked, "What's going on at the Ritz in White Plains? It looks like they are building on the top of both towers?"
We got in touch with Marge Schneider of the Cappelli Group that manages the Ritz Towers. She told us that scaffolding has been built on top of each tower to facilitate replacement of some of the mirrored panels. During Hurricane Sandy three or four panels flew off the top of the building and fortunately did not injure anyone when the fell to the ground below. Management had to wait until the weather improved to erect the scaffolding and allow workers to repair the metal façade cladding panels that were damaged during the storm. She expects the work to be done in three weeks and said that the building has been built to New York State standards and should be fine in the future.
We also got an email about a new fence that has been put up between the Wilgren Parking lot and the Heathcote School, blocking foot traffic on the path from the lot to the school. For years, Heathcote parents have parked in the lot during drop-off and pick-up from the elementary school next door and walked over to the school with their children. Over Memorial Day weekend a new fence was constructed that blocks access between the school and the parking lot.
Tony Barreira, the property manager for the Wilgren Building told us, "The fence was put up to encourage pedestrians to use the public sidewalk, which is maintained by the Village and is safe. The safety of our tenants and visitors is a priority. Sorry for any inconvenience."
